Hi guys. I've had my Sapphire 5870 video card for 2-3 years now and I feel an upgrade is needed. My system specs: AMD Phenom II x6 1090t BE @ 3.8 Ghz, 8gb Corsair RAM, Corsair HX850 PSU. I'm wondering if an upgrade is needed really soon or should I wait a bit for new cards to come out or for current cards to get cheaper? I've been looking into the Radeon 7970 and Nvidia GTX 670 and 680 and I'm really impressed with all three. If I were to upgrade my video card; should I buy one of these three or another?
Actually I was considering the GTX 670 a little more over the 7970 and 680 because it's cheaper than the others and gives pretty much the same performance when OC'd. Thanks for your quick Reply hammerhead2008
However, the other point is that the HD7970 can be easily overclocked to speeds of the GTX680 so it's again debatable. You've got to remember that no matter what, all of these cards are going to blow you away
