My System Specs

What? You're NOT biased towards Nvidia? WTH? After reading the comments section of the AMD Flash Article, I was fully expecting you to foist your Nvidia-bribed-views upon us [/sarcasm]

Back to the question at hand, we're talking about 25% price difference from the 7950 to the 670. I mean it's $100 for somewhat similar performance. You could get a very nice SSD for that price!

In fact, do that. If you don't already have one. Pick up a 128GB SSD for the difference and perk up your system a whole bunch.
