My System Specs

Default

A good 7950 such as the Sapphire ones, or XFX ones, can overclock like crazy easily besting a 7970, though, 7970 can overclock even moreso, so it really depends on your $. I owuld just go a 7950, find the ones that have on average a really nice overclock, and go from there. the $/performance especially taking into account the overclocking headroom is just better with a 7950, the best of them will get within just a couple % of a very overclocked 7970 as well :)

Course, if you wait a few days, the 7890/7870/7850 will also be out,, and they should be the best $/performance with some very significant gains from overclocking as well.
