  1. Is that a trick question bro?

    Obviously the 7970 is better because it's a faster single GPU card. It has more Stream Processors, runs at higher clocks, has more RAM and the same memory interface not to mention the memory bandwith is 30% higher. It uses a more efficient graphics processing technology as well resulting in less heat and more efficiency.

    It is about 30% more expensive as well.

  3. depends on the price.
  4. And not to mention how well the 7970 overclocks, you can increase the performance by up to 25%, and even more if you get a good chip :)
