Yeah, with the latest drivers, I've even noticed my current 5770 has perked up a little bit.

My only issues with the 7950 Boost are the noise/power usage hikes over any of the 660 Ti's. Hoping to see another review with some other manufacturers for a better rounded comparison.
To be honest if noise and power consumption are a major factors for you (noise doesn't bother me because I always have headphones on or the speakers up loud and the Hydro will only make a huge difference if you are folding and or gaming constantly). Either card will serve you well, the difference at 2560x1440 is still only 10% max which doesn't equate to many frames.
