Upgrading my GTS 450, (GTX 670 or OC'd HD 7950)

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: In 3 weeks or 4 BUDGET RANGE: $440 USD at most

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, Photoshop and Adobe After Effects, 3DS Max, and Bitcoin mining

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: Nvidia GTS 450, Corsair TX750 V2

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: i5 2500k OC'd @ 4.5GHz, ASRock Z68 Extreme 3 Gen3, Kingston HyperX 8GB, and CM690 II Case.

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg, but I will consider other sites. COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: United States, Arkansas

PARTS PREFERENCES: None

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I would like the card to remain cool and have a good warranty. I would like to run Battlefield 3 at Ultra (if possible), Bad Company 2 at the highest, Modded Skyrim, and Modded GTA IV (The ENB Graphics Mod).

I'm trying to decide between these two cards:

SAPPHIRE 100352OCSR Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

ASUS GTX670-DC2T-2GD5 GeForce GTX 670 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

I hear that the 7900 series cards are great overclockers, which is why the 7950 intrigues me. Also the 3GB may be useful for when I play modded Skyrim. But I also hear that Nvidia has better drivers than AMD does. Also the GTX 670 fares better in the games I play the most.

And also for my photoshop, AAE, and 3DS Max, which would fare better for these uses? Nvidia or AMD?

Thank you for your time and Cheers! :D

The GTX670 is the card for your other programs so go with it!
