I could use a little input from those who've been with the warmer side how's their experience with the 7970 GHz Edition?

I had ASUS GTX 680 DC2T 2GB for good 6 months but VRAM was crippling overall performance at times proly due to resolution (2560x1600) with that in mind and knowing new goodies will pop around this time I sold it nifty! but **** happens nothing goes as planned kind of strangled and tempted once again gotta buy something screw the wait;

I have a choice between getting an ASUS MATRIX 7970 Platinum 3GB or GTX 680 DC2 4GB time's short had to make a purchase tomorrow hasty hasty tongue.gif

My only gripe with 7970 is its Power Consumption and with the GTX 680 I have a fear it might not make good use of 4GB due GK104's Memory Bandwidth nature anyways feel free to pitch in your thought.

Matrix is a rather annoying card with its reliance on gputweak.

And the 680 to get is the Lightning.
