My System Specs

Default

7870 is a great card, yes the 7950 is more powerful but a good 7870 easily catches up to it, and the new R9 series look very promising I would go for the R9 card even if it costs a tad more as they have some very nice ones out there from Asus, MSI, Sapphire as far as cooling and clocking potential. course I also have a great 7870 that overclocks and declocks like a champ, yes the 7950 has a wider bus though beyond this there is not a massive difference between a 7870, 7870LE and a 7950 in nearly all games/apps. If I had the coin the $299 280x would be in my hands right now.
