Right now i have a 7850 . i just built this PC about a month ago.

2 weeks from now is my birthday and my girlfriend is asking me what i want for my birthday.
i told her i want this graphics card and she said shes willing to half it with me.

you think the upgrade from 7850 to GTX 670 worth it ? or should i just wait.... ehh

As for the main topic, which brand would be best for gaming? I doubt im gonna overclock. im scared and dont know how.

PS: Also will this make my stream look a lot better? I have a 35/35 upload and download speed. With this 7850, i lag in game..

Get the 670 and then sell the 7850 to buy a 2nd one.

or just get a 2nd 7850.

Why would you bother upgrading? I'd you'd waste the money you just spent only a month ago. Are you satisfied with the current FPS? What is the resolution you're playing at? It'll save you quite a bit if you just split the cost of a 7850 instead and two of those would outperform one 670.

I don't recommend getting a GTX 670 especially after buying a HD7850 the previous month. The HD 7850 is a very strong card. Upgrading is a never ending process and can be very expen$ive.

Not sure which game you are lagging in but I would try turning the settings down to see if it makes a difference.

If you sell your used 7850 you are likely going to lose some money off of the depreciation. Kinda like a new car loses $2,000 - 3,000 in value when you drive it off the car lot and it is no longer 'new'. Plus you got to trouble yourself to sell it and sit around waiting hoping someone buys it.

I strongly recommend staying with what you got. I would love to have a 7850.

EVGA would be a good choice :)

The best choice, I think. Especially if you spring for the 4GB Superclocked+ version. If anything you play is hungry for texture RAM or if you like big time anti-aliasing, it will probably run better than a 2GB GTX680.
Then again, it pushes the price up pretty close to $500, which is reference-version 680 territory. If you don't need the RAM for textures or AA, the EVGA basic 2GB 670 can be had for right at $400.

Im playing diablo 3 in LOW settings and im lagging. sometimes "Rubberband" type of lag. If you know what that is. Im playing the game and it hits me somtimes below 30 FPS. which is freaking crap. When im streaming, i probably hit below 25 fps WITH LAG in game..

Also, there some kinda issues with xsplit and AMD 7XXX series regarding streaming. Can only stream for about 10 mins and get a white screen from it. So yeah.

This does not have to be the AMD 7XXX series problem. This is much more likely to be Diablo's problem (and Xsplit's). Getting a 670 for Diablo 3 appears to be rather overkill, as the game is not that demanding at all.
