There's no guarantee you'll hit 1300mhz on any model. That being said you definitely need one that isn't voltage locked.

Its very unlikely you will get 1300 core clock on any GTX 670 without the driver crashing in many games 1202 is the best I can do with the latest driver.

A lot of people on this site who bought a GTX 670 including me recommend getting a HD 7950 instead.

The HD 8000 series will be out late this quarter or early first quarter next year as well.

on kepler, it depends on silicon lottery, but my MSI 670 PE card can hit 1300++ in benchmark...not game (because I didn't try that)
1300 Mhz easy? there's no way you can find out that clock so easy...it's hard, may become very hard on "mid-range" kepler card...

but based on the article that I've read before, MSI PE and EVGA FTW may become great choice for overclocking...(if you care much about that)

so I vote PE or FTW 670....but wait for the other suggestion from another user...thumb.gif

Well, I have a Gigabyte 670 Windforce 3X model and it hits a peak of 1280 Mhz during gaming, and I am able to OC my memory to +500 in Afterburner.

Since the 7970s have dropped their price to around 670 levels, they are definitely the better cards to get. Esp if you can OC them to past 1GHz, which most people seem to hit without problems.

Thanks for all the help I did not mean core clock I meant boost clock. Also why is the 7950 a better choice, also where have you read that the 8000 series is due out end of year or early next year.

Does anyone have an opinion on the motherboard if need be I will ask in another thread
post #8 of 11
i can totally vouch for the awesome OCing of the gigabyte windforce but i also agree that you should go for the 7970 or wait for the 8000 series.

then about the mobo i would recommend the gigabyte up5 thunderbolt or up7 if you are going z77 those are some of the most rock solid boards out but the up7 is a bit pricey though you could have 4 way sli if you choose where you are limited with your choices or the up5

I am confused why some are saying wait for the 8000 series when we are at least 6 months away I just read a few articles saying "We’ve learned that, right now, partners are planning to show off the Radeon HD 8970 XT at CeBIT in March – with a full launch at Computex in June.
" again why is the 7950 a better choice and which model 7970
post #10 of 11
The 7950 is a good choice because of the good price for performance ratio. You will typically find it cheaper than a gtx 670, and it has a high overclock headroom which can typically match stock 7970/680 performance. Also, I just saw this deal going on which sounds great.
