Radeon 7970 or 7950?

I'm seeing mixed things on the net, and my PC gamer friend is insisting that I get the 7950 and that it's better than the 7970 even though it's an older model and costs around 80$ less.... He also isn't giving me anything to back it up for some reason so I'm coming to you guys.

The 7970 is better but you should wait a few weeks for the new AMD cards to come out.

Comparing a 7950 and 7970 overclocked, the 7970 is roughly 15% faster. Not a huge difference, but a bit.
