Besides, the 7970 has 3GB VRAM, that'll last you through 2013 at the least, let alone 2014. And if that's not enough, I read somewhere that Sapphire is planning to make a 6GB VRAM version of the 7970. smile.gif

TBH i think you would run out of graphics power before you would fill up that 6gb of vram unless your using 6 screens or something like that. So getting a 6gb is pretty useless but its good for e-peen i guess biggrin.gif

Surely that can't be right? The 670 is as fast as a 680 at 980mz core?

I would suggest waiting til' May 10th, reviews should start flowing in by then.

Near GTX 680 performance for $399 or less seems like a great deal.

As far as GPU performance is concerned look at the most demanding games
