Or maybe you can get a HD 7950 and OC it, it overclocks well and surpasses HD 7970 level when OCed to a certain level.

If money is no issue to you, get the HD 7970 or you might consider the newer GTX 670 which is the best bang for buck.

I totally didn't see that the 670 came out. I just order the evga 670 for 400. Will be sending back my 7870 it keeps turing off.

When I saw the title of this thread I was going to say "or 670 for 400". :p 

Good purchase :)  The 7970 is going to have to come down in price I'd say.

Thanks for the advice I should receive my EVGA gtx 670 any minuet now and IM looking really forward to it.

I have a Sahpire 7870 OC but it kept crashing on me randomly and for no apparent reason and will be going back. Tried power supply replacement at no prevail. After a few years I guess its about time I jumped back on the NIVIDA wagon.
