What would be the best gaming computer for $1700 or under the kinds of games i would be running are, battlefield 3 and such right now i am looking at alienware but i would like to know if there is better. and i would NOT like to build one.
Here is a hierarchy chart that will help you see where cards fall in a comparison between Nvidia and AMD. As you can see there isn't a card at thaty same level as the 7970 and price wise the 680 would be a close competitor. However that chart was put out just before the release of the 670 and I think that the 670 is a very close competitor performance wise and costs less.
