That site is notorious for having inconsistent results. It says a GTX 295 outperforms a 7950 last time I checked.

To the OP: If you care about PhysX (Look it up on youtube), get the 770. Otherwise, go with whatever's cheapest. Also, if it's a 7970, it must be the GHz edition. Anything else wouldn't perform equal to the 770.

I personally like the Sapphire Vapor-X version, but I heard the voltage is locked. (Not too sure, I might be getting mixed up between it and a 7950.)

What resolution do you play at?
And do you have multiple monitors?

If your going to be playing on a dual or triple monitor setup the 7970 has the advantage of 3gb of video ram. Otherwise I would probably just go with a 770.
