Hi.
I'm looking to upgrade 4890 to one of these cards:

SAPPHIRE HD 7970 OC 3GB GDDR5: Product Page

N670 PE 2GD5/OC: Product Page

I now that these two go pretty head to head, and have the same price but the thing is most of the games I play now or in future, favor or will favor Nvidia (probably): Assassin's Creed, Splinter Cell, Watch Dogs, Batman, BF and etc. -
Plus CUDA-TXAA-FXAA-...
So I'm kinda fixed on 670, unless anyone could convince me otherwise :no: 
Thanks in advance :)

Sounds good to me. Both are great cards. You won't go wrong with either one. But can you get the Asus GTX 670 instead?

Thank you, Asus is great and I love the brand but the price is too high, in fact its 670 has the same price of other brands' 680!:??:

the GTX780 was just released today, so prices of the 600 series hardware will fall. But if you buy 600 series GPU's, you'll already be buying dated hardware... just sayin...

It's about the same price as your MSI one. Unless it's not available where you live. What country do you live in?

And your point is? There are people still buying the GTX 650 Ti Boost, GT 660 Ti, HD 7770, HD 7870 XT, etc. All comes down to budget. Those are great cards regardless.

GTX 780 is expensive. Maybe the GTX 770?

No, Asus is more expensive in my country. I live in Iran.

Ok. In that case, I vote for the Sapphire Dual-X Radeon HD 7970. It's stronger than a GTX 670 and has better cooling.

Still, 7970 Doesn't have CUDA cores (Some softwares require it) and doesn't support TXAA (You can't see Lara's fantastic hair in tomb raider + dunno what the future brings).

That does bring up another reason to get the GTX 670, better driver support for new games.

Assassin's Creed also supports TXAA.

Finally I bought the ASUS GTX 670 non-TOP. I found it for 30$ more than Power Edition. I think it is worth the price, It is the coolest (Both the temp and style) in my case.:)
