Which GPU should I keep?

Does a 7970 equate into much actual real world performance boost over a 7950 when gaming? as if not I'd favour the asus over the xfx

FYI I'm mainly playing Sniper Elite 3 atm

Also I think the xfx 7970 is more power hungry than a 7950, and with a 550w psu could be somewhat maxing it out?

550w should be plenty for a 7970, or even 290x.

7970 for sure

7970 is starting to look favorite then, thanks for the input everyone, and if anyone else whats to chime in I'd still like to hear it :)

Either keep the 7970 or keep both 7950's and crossfire.

I did think about the option of x-firing the 7950s, but the Asus is a 3 slot card, which would be snug as hell against my PSU and I expect this would impact cooling ability, also I think it would mean I'd have to install the 1200w PSU as I doubt 550w would be enough for 2x 7950. Not being able to sell the 1200w PSU and 2 of the 3 GPU's would make that a rather expensive upgrade. Maybe I'll just try each of the cards in my main/gaming rig and see if any of them really shines above the others...

I say keep the asus card. XFX makes some sturdy cards, but they do run a liitle louder and hotter.
