I'm going to build my own gaming computer and I want a graphics card that will run games in 1080p on a single monitor setup with at least 60fps. I will play games like Battlefield 3, CoD, C&C, etc. I've come across the GTX 670 MSI Power Edition, recommended by another user of Tom's Hardware. I have picked it out over the EVGA 670 FTW because it has better cooling. I've also come across the Gigabyte 7970 Windforce OC. Which would be better for my uses and would be best for SLI/Crossfire later and more future proof?

Thanks in advance

GTX 670 "by the numbers". The Asus Cooler easily matched the MSI and is quieter

The Asus GTX670-DC2OG-2GD5 is the new version of the TOP, though now with a lower factory OC, it has "TOP selected" GPUs> For extreme overclocking (as much as 30%), it has an 8 phase VRM. The MSI PE version has a 7 phase VRM.

Another reason I'd lean to the 670 is that when ya grab a second card.

Metro is a 39 fps experience on a single 670 which jumps to 67 fps on 2 cards. Frame latency and CF stuttering issues ar a problem of late for the AMD cards

Would this be a good card? I'm pretty sure it's just the 4GB version of the ASUS card you sent me, and it's for the same $429 price.
