HD 7750 vs HD 7950

#1_Zero1_Posted 10/1/2013 6:31:26 AM
So I have the 7750, and I want to upgrade tot he 7950. The comparisons I looked at suggested a big increase in performance, is this a sate assumption?

When I do go to buy a 7950, what is the difference between the Vapor, and the regular from Sapphire? Which one will offer the most bang for my buck?

Doesn't seem like that huge of an upgrade to me. Why bother upgrading within the same line?

You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

I think I've made this mistake before. Wow the 7750 is a crap card... but it feels like such a waste, buying two cards in the same series. x_X

How does that even remotely a good reason to feel like an upgrade is a waste? Would it be a waste to upgrade from a GTX 650 to a GTX 690?

I bought the 7750 before I did my homework, and I am paying for it. But I do want to upgrade, even if it is still in the 7000 series

It's a good upgrade. Do you absolutely need to upgrade now?

Yes, that would be stupid to buy a card then upgrade it later within the same series.

Why does it matter that the cards are in the same series?
