Default SWAP 2 Sapphire 7950's OC Edition for Gigabyte Windforce 3's 670's

I have an offer to trade straight up my
2 Sapphire 7950 OC Edition (Dual Fan 950MHz)

for his 2 Gigabyte Windforce 3 670's

I'm not sure which cards are going to be better overall.

I like BF3, COD BO2, CS:GO, Diablo 3 etc...


Thanks in advance for any advice!

I think you're getting the better end of the deal those are cool running cards and overclock quite a bit you're basically getting 680's.

i wouldn't .. unless you want to do 3d with a nvidia capable monitor.

the 7950s can oc better than any 670s doesn't really mater what ones and still have more hp under the table.

and they scale better.

I would do that deal, yes. You're getting the better end of the deal. I would compare a 7950 to a 660Ti.
The only thing that would deter me is the switch from MSI to Gigabyte. But, seeing as they're 670's, yes, worth it.

I'm not sure that there is that big of a difference in performance between the two. I'd go for whichever cards scale better and are supported in xfire/sli for the games you play.

Do the trade. As fast as you can. Heck you can even sell the 3 670s to get 7970s

Edit: Oops, guess I read it wrong, 2*. I need sleep

are you sure about this? Is there anything wrong with the 670's??? Not sure, if I know anyone that would want to trade 7950's for 670's.
