Actually....

EVGA Signature 2 FTW (680 pcb; the KING OF 670's; )
ASUS Direct CU II (custom 670)
Gigabyte Windforce OC (680 pcb) / MSI Power Edition (custom 670) / EVGA FTW (3-way tie)
Zotac Amped falls somewhere within that crowd also.

These particular 670's perform so close, it really does not matter what order wink.gif

Most efficient & coolest out the bunch...

i'd say get the 7970.. Best gaming card for the price and in every single build that's not on a tight budget. it's the number one recommended gpu.

They'll be out at the end of 2013. I would hate to wait that long.

Just realize you're gaming @ 1080p & you're using a 7850 1Gb...Since this is the Nvidia forum, I'll will only address your question...Upgrade to that 670 & sell that 7850 1Gb thumb.gif

YES, it's definitely worth it biggrin.gif

I hate to be a stick in the mud, but AciPunkEx said he can really only get the 670.  Based on what he has said so far, it sounds to me like the only option is an EVGA 670.  So it sounds to me like all he's really asking is if it's worth his time and money to sell his 7850 to this store and get the 670 for £190 (that is how much he'd be spending after selling his 7850 to the store).

 

In other words, I think that this is really a Yes or No question - not "I recommend this instead".

It's a computer!

What would you guys say for a gtx 570 to 7970 for 1080p gaming? 7970 is really expensive in my country, especially the ghz edition cards, they're like £350.

I'd wait for you.... check out the GTX 780 and the rest of the GTX 7 series
maybe even wait to see what Radeon does, so many rumors going around...
but an overclocked GTX 570 can still game right now, though the 1.25GB VRAM might come into play now
but your @ 1080p, so I know it still produces..

edit:
but then if you catch a good sale....... then go for it.
hell I went from a GTX 580 SC @ 1080p to my GTX 670...
didn't really NEED to but did anyways..

The HD7970 has no problems playing games at 1080p. I'd go for a HD7870XT or 7950 if you want to save some money.
