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.

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.
