It really depends which games your planning on playing.As both cards trade equal blows depending on the game.I just have a big problem with the 3 slot cards.It's my personal preference but I just think it takes up a lot of space for ctossfire/SLI.Also the dual slot MSI card has better temps than the triple slot Asus card.
MSI better temps than the Asus? Only in crossfire... With one card, the Asus has much lower temperatures unless your computer's ambient temp is higher than the card. Other than that, I would go with the Asus anyway, Asus make great cards and if you have a problem they don't mess around with RMA, they get back to you asap (the one problem I have with MSI and a few other manufacturers)... Also, the Asus will overclock better if you plan to.
Well now, with the new drivers, the 7970 GHz outperforms the 670 by a LITTLE. But wow 80$, is a lot if not planning to run Multi-Monitor 7970s -- there would be no reason to go with the 3GB card -- you won't really need the extra VRAM
As far as the member that said the 7970 is better it's wrong they are neck and neck purple stank is correct It really depends which games your planning on playing.As both cards trade equal blows depending on the game.
As of right now your fine,although a O.C. would only improve your performance.As for future games you will probably have to O.C. your processor.The Phenom ii architecture is almost 5 years old.Making it quite old and even at stock speeds you can see it barely able to keep up anymore.For comparison Intel has came out with 3+ architecture changes since then.
This is because LEDs offer much more gradation in intensity and a larger light wavelength spectrum, giving a truer color quality. These types of monitors offer a better dynamic contrast ratio too. So if you compare LED and LCD monitors from a gaming perspective and other intensive graphic applications, LED monitors are surely better choices, as they provide vivid and more lifelike colors, with better gradation.
Gtx 670= 2gb vram 256bit 920mhz turbos to around 1050mhz i do believe
amd 7970=3gb vram 384bit 920mhz no turbo (or ghz editon which i think is like 1050mhz?
Higher resolutions amd definitely . both are great cards that run pretty much any game on ultra with decent settings (except witcher 2 with ubersamplin) the 7970 ghz is currently the fastest single gpu in the world right now proof? http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-7970-ghz-...http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-7970-ghz-... so yea if you want to have the honour of owning the worlds fastest single gpu get the ghz 7970 and make your friends cry. dont say the 7970 isnt the fastest i put those benchmarks there for a reason. and dont tell me you can oc the 670. same can be done the 7970. just my 2cents both a great so cant go wrong with either
