Default Gaming graphic card

Hey there,
I'm buying a new graphic card to my pc, I'm doing this so I can prepare my pc to run all the 2013 new games. I have a $350 budget (really maxed out here, so if cheaper still meeting my requirements better) and my pc has one PCI 16x slot. Depending on the graphic card I'm getting a new PSU.
Thanks

Question is:
Should I get the HD 7950 (from gigabyte or msi) or with a regular HD 7870 I will get all I need for a cheaper price?

Well, the 7870 can still run pretty much any game on ultra, its high end, and its cheaper. But since you have a higher budget, i'd go with the 7950 probably from MSI, theirs has better cooling

Go with the 7950, it, in theory, should last longer, and as you want to play 2013 games it's probably your best bet

No problem, however only buy it if you don't mind paying the extra money. I wouldn't want you to buy it just because we told you to

Have a look at the gigabyte 7950. with three fans and triangle cooling it will overclock to the max.
