hey guys, im on the hunt for a new card. cant decide to pull the trigger now and go with a gigabyte windforce 7970, or wait and see if the ghz edition 7970's will bring. will it even matter? all i know is ghz edition will update reference points for card makers.
im also considering a gigabyte windforce gtx 670 but its hard to come by, and probably has a oc ceiling.
The one inzone linked is a GHz edition, and you can OC it up to 1125 using voltage tweaks.
Also the GTX 670 is very good value for the price and performance, it's faster than HD 7970 at stock clocks but i guess all the GTX 6000 series has a limiting OCing ceiling as you said. If you're not gonna OC the HD 7970 get the GTX 670.
that diamond looks good. but my question was to whther get that gigabyte one inzone posted since its already clocked at 1ghz. or wait to see when amd refreshes the 7970 to come stock at 1ghz, other card makers might release 1100ghz set cards, thats my concern.
i only plan to oc the card a couple notches and have it last me 3 1/2 years or so. so i'd want it more future proof. gtx cards are too hard to come by
