Hd7970ghz cf vs gtx780

Hi I'm building a new rig and these are the options. They are the same price. Which one should I get I'm playing at 1080p and maybe 5760x1080 in the future. AMD is supposed to update the drivers to make crossfire better.

Thanks

  1. 780 easily.
  2. Best answer
    At 1080p a single HD 7970 GHz or a single GTX 780 should be sufficient. You shouldn't need to CrossFireX. But if you plan to play at 5760x1080 resolution, then I would pick the HD 7970 GHz CrossFireX over a single GTX 780. Even though CrossFireX is still problematic right now.
  3. 780 ...even a 770 comes in ahead of the 7970 Ghz Edition

    On performance per dollar, margin widens

    I'm using twin 770 4GB in 5760 x 1080 builds

    Guess ill go with the 780. The gtx770 does NOT always beat the hd7970ghz
  5. The HD 7970 GHz has higher overclocking potential over the GTX 770. And some games favor one side over the other.
