I am currently having Gtx 560 non ti reference based card.And i play games at 1080p res.The problem is my 560 is 1gb version so the low vram makes new games like bf3 ,fc3 etc give 'MEDIUM' performance.so should i get HD7950 OC or GTX 670 or should i wait for GTX700 series? redface.gif

If i get hd7950 i can save 50$, thumb.gif

no doubt the HD 7950 OC is better for price perf. in fact when both cards are overclocked HD 7950(1.15 Ghz) would be faster than GTX 670(1.3 Ghz) across a majority of games. at the same clocks HD 7950 is 3 - 6% slower than HD 7970.

the drivers are quite good. I am running a HD 6950 2GB at 1080p for the past 2 years. no major issues. currently on 12.11 beta 11 with 12.11 cap 2. playing farcry 3 with ultra and no MSAA. very smooth.

get this card. it has 925 mhz boost clocks. so your card will be faster.

this card has the flex technology which is useful for triple monitor. it allows using three monitors without an active displayport to DVI adapter. for single monitor no benefits.
