correct. the hd 7970 lightning has single link dvi and so cannot run 2560 x 1440 with the dvi port . you will need a displayport monitor (use minidp to dp cable) or a minidisplayport to dual link dvi adapter which costs 100 dollars. keep this in mind if you decide on HD 7970 Lightning. as for performance 7970 lightning is the faster card without a doubt.

Just like others mentioned it depends on whether its important for you to have physx support or not. 7970 is a generally faster card BUT i'd personally chose 670 because i like particular titles that feature physx effects. Not a reference 670 though for sure cause i simply hate that tiny anemic short pcb. But thats me. You might want a take a look at Evga GTX 670 FTW, maybe even 4GB Version if you are planning to get a 1440p monitor.



and if you dont care about physX and/or higher power draw get a 7970

Kinda what other peps have said. 7970 unless you plan on adding a second card later, in that case the 670 would probably be better.

Now that AMD has apparently secured all 3 next-gen consoles, I'd be surprised if we see many more PhysX titles.
It'll be Direct Compute all the way for physics and current AMD chips crush Nvidia (except Titan) in compute performance.

If you have no SLI in mind, go with AMD.
