5850 CFX or 7950 -

I'm upgrading my PC.
I was wondering if I should get another 5850 in crossfire or buy an entirely new 7950.
I'm getting a 3 years old 5850 from a friend for 100$.I'm pretty sure its never done any gaming.
Will 5850cfx out perform a 7950? or should buy a new 7950 because I feel that Radeon 5000 series will soon lose support from AMD in a few months?
an oc'ed 7950 is by far faster than 5850cf especially in dx11 titles and 3 times more vram.
Not by far if both config are overclocked, I had my CFX at 850/1200 and compared with my HD7950 at 1100/1500 the difference in BF3, Crysis 3, etc. is around 15-20% at best. Guild Wars 2 is about the same performance.
Now the real difference comes when you use high def textures in games, then the 3gb vram rocks
