Ok Guys

In 2 hrs I'm buying a new card but I still haven't decided which one, And I want/need help deciding!!!!!

Gaming at 1080p

Straight to the point what do I get 7950/7970/670/680. Can't afford titan so that's a big NO smile.gif

Want the card to last 2 yrs maybe and want to play everything at max if possible.

11.30pm is getting close

I'd say go with the 7950.

Poll Added, feel free to add reason why, right now I can see the 2 free games from ATI, haven't had an Nvidia card since the 8800GT and man what a card that was
post #7 of 19
Ill narrow it down for you, 670 and 7950. Gives you most of the performance and saving a decent amount on the price.

7950 for sure.

If you pick one like the Asus, MSI or Gigabyte one you'll be able to clock it to the same level as a 680 for halve the money.

If it's solely for gaming, i'd go for a 7970 GHz edition, beats a GTX 680 in just about every game in case you ever decide to go to a higher resolution (If not then either choice is good). If you don't want the best though, just good bang for buck, i'd personally go for a 7870 Tahiti LE since i've seen them go on sale for $210 a couple of times and they come very very close to the 7950's performance. I don't think you'll maintain 60+ FPS minimum in every game with any of the GPUs on max settings, though you'll come close enough.

 

edit: here you go, 7870 Myst edition for $210 with code PWCHD7870
