What GPU to get for my homebuild poll

Hi there. I am stuck with a decision to make and need your help. What will be the best GPU for gaming and overclocking between the gtx680 and the hd 7950. The setup I will be using is AsRock extreme3 gen3 mobo with the intel i5 2500k. The rig is being made for gaming purposes only and will be overclocking to the maximum that air cooling will take. I have a £300(ish) budget so if you think there is another card more suitable, then please comment below.

  1. GTX 670 gets my money, stock clocked i think its better than nvidias top card and its on par-ish with the GTX 680 but is £100 less.

    I was swinging more towards the 670 as I have a better understanding of them but I have never had a radeon card before and this intrigued me slightly. I'm buying the parts over the next few weeks anyway so will see what gets recommended.
