Hey guys, i was originally planning on getting a gtx 670 but after reading about the numerous problems people are experiencing with the card i'm also considering the 7950.Should i stick to the 670 or the 7950???
well, you have golden chance for getting the best performing card, I will recommend the GTX 670 it's almost outperform both the brothers HD 7950 or HD 7970, GTX 670 is all you need for everything you need or want. Here is a link i'm providing to you to see which one is better. So take a look, www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/550?vs=598
from it is clear GTX 670 own the rules.
I'm actually more inclined towards the 670 but i heard many users facing problems with 670's.Also since the 600 series require pci 3.0 slots will they work in sandy bridge motherboards without getting bottlenecked.(I can't buy the 680 as it's gonna overshoot my budget )
Do you play older games? If so how much older? I'm not exactly sure, but apparently the 7xxx cards still play older games decently, whereas the 6xx does not or cannot. Not exactly sure on all the details though, you would have to google it.
I don't think there are many driver issues ATM for the 6xx right now (i've read of things like vsync studder issue, sometimes the card not clocking up to full speed, but they seem to be "rare"). A new NVIDIA driver should be released soon.
Basically I would still go for the 670 if I were you. It's just got so much more room for "growth" than the 7950.
