In that case get the HD 7950 boost . HD 7950 boost matches GTX 670 at stock. overclocked HD 7950 (1.15 Ghz) is faster than GTX 670(1.3 Ghz)

" At 1920x1200 the GeForce GTX 670 is 12% faster than the Radeon HD 7950 and just 2% faster than the 7950 Boost. However the GTX 670 is 27% more expensive than both cards, so whichever way you slice it the Radeon HD 7950 Boost is the better proposition and things just get worse for the GTX 670 as the resolution is increased."

"Middle pricing band – This pricing band was far less competitive as the Radeon HD 7950 with Boost simply demolished the GTX 660 Ti across the board with regards to raw frame rates and overall game play experience across our suite of testing. "

also the HD 7950 boost does not consistenly run at 925 mhz boost clocks unless you max out power option to +20% as its throttled due to power. once you max out the power option and overclock the HD 7950 is 3 - 6% slower than HD 7970 at same clocks.

add it to 3 fantastic games and its a no brainer. Get the sapphire HD 7950 boost and you will be happy . thumb.gif
