Firstly, I haven't posted here in a while, and I'm unable to find the 'PC Hardware discussions' forum anymore. So if that still exists, please pardon me for posting this question here.
My previous graphics card (AMD HD6950) got blown up a few days ago (along with my processor and motherboard) because my naughty 3 year old nephew poured water into my PC cabinet. I'm looking for replacements. I've already bought a mid-range motherboard along with an AMD FX 8320 processor. Now I'm a bit confused about the graphics card. I did a bit of research, and realized that the Radeon HD7950 is the only card which fits within my budget at the moment. I do play the latest games, but only at 1080p (my monitor doesn't support any higher resolution). And I ALWAYS keep anti-aliasing turned off, because the performance hit is not really worth the minor improvement in image quality (at least for my eyes). Also, I always game on a single monitor and don't make use of fancy features like eye-infinity or anything.
Considering the above aspects, would it make sense to go for HD7950 now? And how better is it compared to an HD6950? Considering my overall setup - I previous had an AMD FX 4210 processor with 8GB RAM and an HD6950 (2GB) graphics card. Now, I have an AMD FX 8320 Processor and 8GB RAM (Thankfully the RAM survived my nephew's assault), to which I'd like to add a Radeon HD7950 (2GB) card. So would my new setup perform marginally better than my previous one? Please advise.
P.S. I'd like to stick with AMD, so I'm not even considering Intel/Nvidia setups. I know that AMD components consume more power, but that's fine with me (because power costs aren't that high in my country). I'm not willing to shell out extra for overpriced Intel/NVidia products. So please focus only on AMD while answering my query.
