I'm in the market for a new GPU to replace my GTX 560. My budget is about $210 its actually stretched so i can't go any higher. I'm wondering which would be the best card to get between the HD 7870 GHz, HD 7870 Tahiti LE or HD 7950. I game at 1920x1080 and do want some nice eyecandy. I do intend to overclock the card as much as i can get out of it. Games i play Battlefield 3, Crysis 3, Far Cry 3, Sleeping Dogs, Hitman Ab, Assassins Creed III, Batman Ac, Borderlands 2, Devil May Cry, Max Payne 3 etc.. The card also has to be under 10.6" and i don't mind buying Pre-owned either.

HD7950 is high end class (based on its series product) also has more SP, VRAM, and better cooling system rather than three other gpus you've mentioned. In addition, the more important thing is MSI's HD7950 price is very cheap. :laugh:
