In that case go with GTX660, it's definitely faster than 7790.

That Vapor-X is the best 7950 available if you can stretch for it I would recommend that over the 660.

7790 vs. 660

7790 vs 7950 boost

660 vs. 7950 boost

The clear winner is the 7950 and the performance difference is worth the price difference which is rare

I just recently switched from a GTX660 to HD7950 Boost and it was well worth the money spent to do so....

^Yeah I dunno how they do it tbh,.

At the risk of sounding like a fanboy with a broken-record, the 7950 offers unbelievable price/performance value (even with 2nd rate Elpida IC's).

Maybe the best value card released in recent generations?

Prices still haven't dropped here tho, they're retailing at $420 which is only a $30 drop from a year ago.

I want one for crossfire but it needs to be 2nd hand as the new cards have Elpida chips.
