These two are priced very close together and I want the best car possible but I can't decide.
Keep these things in mind before giving an answer to my predicament.
- I will be running all of my games at 1080p (that's as high as my monitor goes) and only some anti aliasing turned on (Call me weird but I actually prefer the look of games with lower AA).
- I shall only game at up to 2-3 hours at a time (Too much strain on my eyes otherwise).
- I won't be SLIing down the track. I will just upgrade to a better performing card in a few years time.
- I will be not running crossfire but I will have two monitors, one for gaming and the other for anything else.
- I don't know if I'll over clock in the future but if I do it won't be a major over clock.
- I will be recording a lot of gameplay with DXtory
- I want to play BF4, GTA V (if it come out for pc :/ ), Borderlands 2, Planetside 2, Destiny, Watch_Dogs and Saints Row IV.
- This is my build if any of these components affect the GPU please inform me!
Intel i5 3570K (Overclocked to 4.4 GHz)

The GTX 770 is a bit better if you're not overclocking. The 7970 overclocks a lot better. But either card will do fine at 1080p.

IMO I would go with GTX 770 Even though BF4 will be an AMD favoured game. Can't go wrong either way.

That Galaxy GC is a real nice card, all custom with upgraded components and a good factory overclock.
