Do you want the best 7970 or the best of them cards listed?

Either way the answer is that any of them 7970's or the GTX 680 will be fantastic for any games you want to play. If you're doing any video editing I'd recommend the GTX 680 for CUDA.

Personally I'm a huge fan of the Matrix coolers on Asus's cards. They're absolutely monstrous. Just make sure you have 3 slots available!

He's in the AMD section asking about 7970s why suggest a 680 rolleyes.gif

My suggestion would be the Sapphire, I like their performance cards.

Because if you read OP's post he actually links a GTX680...

Either way I vote for the Vapor-X! thumb.gif
