Nobody can answer that question. Your gpu/cpu temps depend on several factors including ambient room temperature, case airflow, fan speed settings, etc.

Everyones will be different regardless of what card your talking about.

Did you read my post? My psychic powers are not enabling me to know what your gpu temps could be.

What does a gaming case have to do with anything? There is no average, it depends on your room temp, case cooling, load and fan speed. Please try to pay attention.

Just chiming in... I have a reference 7970 with a 230mm fan blowing directly at it from the side panel. During long gaming sessions, I seem to be averaging about 79 degrees.

I'm sure with Sapphire's aftermarket cooler, you'll see a lot lower temps provided that you have efficient cooling fans.

I have a 670. Ive thought alot about it, i think its more about features.

7970:
3GB VRAM vs 2GB for 670

higher OC gains (1:1 ratio of preformance increase instead of 1:05 for the Keplar) basically double the gains from overclocking the same amount of Keplar.

670
Adaptive Vsync - there were issues from the start I believe they fixed it. Basically this feature stops both frame dropping and frame tearing. In regular Vsync, if your frames drop below 60, they drop all the way to 30, and then up to 60 when allowed.

Depending on your manufacter, they use less power, and usually run cooler and quieter
Some games are optimized for Nvidia cards, you might get a huge amount (15ish fps diff) with nividia cards

--------------------------------------
Im probably forgetting alot of important things
In the end, 7970 will on average get you the most frames, but it is usually more expensive. (used to be 50$+) , and there is a sacrificen with either, so its not an easy choice.
My 670 runs at 1280 and its at 73 C

But the thing is, if you create a custom fan profile and bump the fan up a bit (10%) you will barely hear it but your temps can be 5C cooler, so don't take temps too seriously. Any non-reference card should do fine, Gigabyte and MSI cards are great.
