Neither!...I suggest you buy a single 780 now & 2nd 780 later OR wait for AMD 8000 series.

The perfomance and price are quiet the same. So i think change criteria or go for the look.

Personally i would go for the 7970

i agree 100% when i had my 680 i felt the 7970 i had was more powerful....but with the 770 the tables have turned (not by any stretch of the imagination)


so to be honest you wont really notice a difference from a 7970 to a 770 ...so pick one and enjoy

i don't see any difference between the 7950 and the 7970 in games using 1080.

nor i assume you would.....benchmarks, yes...FPS on the corner, yes....on real live gaming once you pass certain point your eye dosnt see it so for 1080p i would assume if you build the exact machine with the difference being the video cards and dont tell the user! he would never notice when moving from one to another!

So new dilemma... I recently saw that they are going to have the 4GB 770 come out soon. Would you guys still recommend the 7970s over the 770s. I will be going SLI/Crossfire so I am wondering if AMD has got a hold of Crossfire performance since I had my 7950s crossfired last year
