    i presume this is for gaming??
    In my opinion the hd 7970 will give the best performance, infact it's more comparable to the 680 than the 670
    However the extra memory in the 670 will be useful if you're running like a tri-monitor setup

    The 670 and 7970 perform basically the same at stock up to 1080p resolution, trading blows depending on the game. http://img824.imageshack.us/img824/7466/perfrel1920.gif

    http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_650_Ti_Boost_TF_Gaming/26.html The 7970 most likely will OC better (and has way more compute power http://developer.amd.com/resources/heterogeneous-computing/opencl-zone/ ),AMD Eyefinity Technology http://www.amd.com/us/products/technologies/amd-eyefinity-technology/Pages/eyefinity.aspx Bitcoin mining https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison the 670 gives you CUDA http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CUDA PhysX http://www.geforce.com/hardware/technology/physx/videos# TXAA http://www.geforce.com/hardware/technology/txaa/videos# FXAA http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fast_approximate_anti-aliasing ADap. Vsync etc and lower power draw. Both are solid buys.If you still can't decide which card to take try looking at the games that you play or specific features that you want.If cost really matter to you then you might want to go with whatever is cheaper to you.
