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


wut


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?


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

Ok what about a 610 to a 690? Is that still stupid? It must be because its in the same series right?

He's gonna say that the 610 is a GT 6XX series card, and the 690 is a GTX 6XX series card.

The 7950 should max almost everything you throw at it while with the 7750 you'll have to settle with medium/medium-high for modern games.

Depends on how much graphics quality means to you.

The R series launches in October BF4. Wait for that. It'll price drop everything and you can upgrade to the R series or do a 7950.

I upgraded from a 7850 to 7950 and have no regrets. The price of the 7950 is pretty amazing these days, it's a worthwhile upgrade.

I once considered getting the 7750 because of its passive cooling models, but glad I didn't now. Even an upgrade to a 7870 would be decent.

I think your upgrade is worth it.

And this is comparing a 7770 because Anandtech doesn't even have a 7750 on the list so the actual differences might be a bit greater.

It's more than twice as powerful.

I'd wait until the 200X series comes out though. It's only gonna be a couple months I think.

Ok, so what's the diff between a regular 7950 and the vapor one from Sapphire? There is a price difference for sure, but why?
