  1. Best answer
    I would go for the 7970.
    The GTX770 is basically just an overclocked 680, which is outperformed by the 7970 Ghz. Games like Crysis 3 are already starting to breach 2GB at 1080p, so I can definitely see needing that extra VRAM in the future.

    Plus, you get a bunch of free games.
  2. At 1080p, 2 GB is just fine .... But you can get 4Gb models if ya worried

    As for which one ... read these and decide

    At 1920 x 1080, we are talking a 15% advantage in "performance per dollar" but the difference in game bundles may sway ya

  3. $299 for the said 7970 ghz

    thats by far the better choice here, its not even an fair argument to compare these two cards.
  4. ^ The 7970 for $300 is quite a bit cheaper than the GTX 770. And with performance of the two being close it's a pretty solid upgrade.

    That said, I'm a fan of nVidia and the GTX 770.
