Go for Sapphire's HD 7950 Vapor-X comes with a large dual-fan cooler that uses the company's famous vapor-chamber technology. On the Vapor-X you will also find a "Lethal Boost" button which switches to a second BIOS with higher clock speeds. With this BIOS, clocks are increased to 950 MHz GPU and 1250 MHz memory. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Also,MSI's GTX 670 Power Edition uses the famous Twin Frozr IV cooler from the MSI Lightning and comes with a large clock speed boost out of the box, making its default clock speed even higher than GTX 680 stock clocks.That would be a solid choice for the price imo they currently are going for $389.99 a piece that doesn't look unreasonable, given the improved cooling and higher clocks but it's up to you. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

7950 vs 7970, both look good. What would sway me to buy one over the over?

7970 is a performance boost over the 7950, but it costs more.
If you are adept at overclocking, and you get a 7950 with a good cooler (im not sure if that one does) you can overclock it, and get ~ the same performance.

Go for the 7950 and overclock it these are good as well They offer performance that is nearly as good as that of the high-end models, but at a more modest price. If you stick with a 1080p or 1920 by 1200 display with one of these cards, you should be in good shape. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
