    its an extremely solid, low wattage, low temperature card.

    edit: and teh hd 7k series tend to have an easy time overclocking because of it.

    Because it's currently the best GPU in its' price range and NVIDIA has no plans currently to offer a 6XX card in the $200 - $250 range, initially the 660TI and 670 will run in the $300 - $400 range.

    I just bought a 7870 and I can say it's quite an amazing GPU - so I'm not just a fanboy.
