Gtx 770 or HD 7970

So I'm going to be at 1080p mostly gaming (bf3 mainly and others) but also some video editing (Sony vegas). Where I am they are currently the same price and I may save a little money from amd free games. I will not be sli/crossfire as its an Itx build. Physx doesn't really bother me. I will be overclocking relatively highly as well.
I'm looking at 7970 iceqx2 and msi gtx 770 (not lightning)
So far I've heard a lot of fanboys and mixed views.
Thanks!

  1. Personally, I would get the 7970 just because Bf4 (If you get it) will be optimized for amd cards. Or you can just wait and save your money and wait for the amd's 8000 series.

    Optimized for AMD? Where'd you hear this?

  4. I'm not the greatest fan of HIS, so I'd go for the MSI card. By memory they perform about the same for about the same price, so I'd probably go for the 770 on the grounds that you may use it on a different build, and SLI is more reliable.

    OTOH, AMD has the nice bundle, and I'd throw money at them to keep them solvent and mildly competitive in the CPU space. Plus they have better Linux driver support.

    EDIT: Next consoles have AMD GPUs, so stuff should be optimized well for those too.
  5. I prefer GTX 770 because you can run BF3 or other.
    GTX 770 have more core clock and shader clock than 7970
    Pls tell me your resolution on monitor??

    I think go with gtx 770. It has more performance than 7790. You can play any game on 1080p easily.
    2. U want some video editing so definitely 770is better.
    3. If u want to save money and don't matters some performance then u can go with 7970.
    I hope it helps.
    Thank you.

    1080p like i said ( 144hz)
  8. Ok i'm leaning towards the 770 thanks for all your help. But in terms of overclocking i've heard 7970 would be better?

    Just announced yesterday. oh, guess it fell under the unimportant news.

    I'd still rather buy a 770. I'm sure it won't have frame latency issues like AMD has had in the past.
  10. Core clock and shader clock aren't comparable outside models - otherwise the 1GHz 7770 would beat the 7970 (non GHz). Benchmarks all the way.

    You'll need a hell of a platform to pump out 144 FPS.

    Also, consider the 7970 GHz Edition.

    I would be overclocking it anyway to over 1ghz so with both cards oc which would be the better option? thanks
  12. GCN has more headroom IIRC. Ignore the GHz Edition then.
