It really comes down to personal preference here ... Were talking Corvette vs Mustang, Ferrari vs Lamborghini, mustard vs ketchup... I can stop with the analogies now right, you get the idea? They're different but one is not necessarily better than the other. For certain uses they are, you do not add ketchup to potato salad or egg salad but you can add mustard. But you technically could add ketchup to these and I'm sure some people do. Just like in GPUs.
This makes sense, as another post in here said the 7970 was supposed to rival the 680gtx not 670gtx
I'll keep an eye out for the following and when I see a bargain that I can't pass up I'll make my decision.
Here are my choices...
7970, 670gtx, 760gtx, maybe 680gtx (depends on price), right now the prices are pretty much the same and yes I know you get 3 games with Radeon but none of them interest me. I wanted the Splinter cell which was now changed to Batman, also one I don't care about...I know I can wait with my game choices for Radeon but not sure how that works and how often they offer new and better games.
