5970 vs 6970 vs 7950

Recommended Posts

Depends on whether you want to deal with Crossfire or not. A single 5870 is no slouch if you have to disable Crossfire (which is easy and fast in CCC).

Cool, well I guess I will still wait for the 7950 reviews. So it's going to be a 5970 or a 7950. I think it's better to buy a cheaper last gen, high end card then a mid end current card.

 

Thanks for the help guys!

^^ Also consider the power consumption by the card. There must be some comparison between 5970 & 7950 in those reviews.

skip the headache and go with a good single gpu card. if i had the option i would go strong single gpu and not worry about crossfire scaling/drivers.

Alright I made a decision. I will get a 5970 after the 7950 comes out (for price drops). The 5970 beats the 6970 at most games at the res I play at. (review here)Yeah I know its the 6990 review but it has the 5970 and the 6970 in the charts.
