Help deciding between 2 video cards

Title says all.
Back in November, I was looking at getting an HD 7950 (XFX) to go with the computer I'm building. It was about $250. Now, though, it seems like all the 79xx's have skyrocketed in price. The absolute cheapest one is around $350. I'd really prefer to keep my Video Card budget under/at $250. Should I pay the extra $100 and get a 7950, or drop the price and pick up a 7870 for ~$180?

The 7950 is old news. Get the R9 270/7870 GHz or R9 270X or R9 280X.

Or save money and get an nvidia card right now. Every AMD is going to be overinflated.
Of all the zeroes, I'm the bluest.
