You can get a 7950 for 170-190 dollars. The pricing is not right. It should be more like sub 150 dollar. Because I would definitely take the more powerful 7950 over it if I had the money.

Where I live you can get a 7770 for the equivalent of 170-190 dollars. A 7950 you're probably looking at 400-500 dollars. You guys are ridiculously lucky.

Sadly, it no longer makes any sense to buy a GTX 660 over a cheaper HD 7870, or honestly to spend the extra $20 for an HD 7950...

Btw, does anyone else's GTX 660 absolutely refuse to use more than 1536MB of VRAM without stuttering like mad? Must be the result of dropping to single-memory-controller-bandwidth.

My same question. The 700s have launched and are readily available. The 7870 is available at this same price range, as is a 7950 on sale, and the 760 around $250 is much better. Why go for 192-bit memory when you can get 256 and 384 for similar price? Aside from the guy who needs the best CUDA card for video and moderate gaming under $200, I don't see this selling well.

But why would you want a 7950? Next you're going to tell me to get AMD instead of Intel because it's cheaper...
