  1. Best answer
    your 7970 will run them both on ultra bf4 still only requires the 7000 series and for geforce the 600 series.
  2. I've had a plan to build a pc this month, but I gonna wait until Q4. I think its worth waitin.
  3. You should wait since there should be higher performance cards for around the same price. You can't really go wrong with a 7970 though.

    4GB should be good unless you are playing at a res higher that 1080p

    i think so aswell, but i've heard that next gen consoles are going to have 8 gb gddr5.
    so i do think gaming studio's will make use of it, by for example higher res textures

    That is only the PS4 and it is also being shared as regular RAM and VRAM so it really isn't much better.
