    They are not the same card.

    GeForce 7950 GX2 features a knockout pair of GeForce processors on one irresistibly powerful board. This dual-GPU board features an astounding 1 GB of fast GDDR3 memory and support for resolutions up to 2560 X 1600.

        The only video card options available for the 5791 are:

        512MB PCI-Express nVidia GeForce 8700GT DX10
        512MB PCI-Express nVidia GeForce 7950GTX w/GDDR3

          ok so last question.if i go for sli 8700 gt wud they be equal to a single 7950gtx in power?that way i will also get the dx10 capabilities along with gud enough power.

            Note that the 8700GT features dual rank 128 bit, whereas 7950's ring bus is a natural 256 bit. The ring bus is the bottleneck for the 8700GT, but it still performs beatifully at lower resolutions. Namely, if you game below 1440x.. resolutions , the 8700 will be very close to the 7950, but with DX10 support In 3dmark scores, you can check them on different sites, even on the 5791 specs page on XoticPc .
            I would recommend going for the 7950GTX if you're a gamer often, or the 8700 if you're not to crazy about sheer power.
