HD 7950 vs HD 6970 vs GTX 570

I will be purchasing the parts for my new computer build off of newegg in a couple of weeks (2-3). I am stuck on the gpu which I will be using almost entirely for gaming. I play pretty much all games besides mmo's but I could try them, at any rate I was wondering which one is the best overall based on value, performance, and quality. In the future I am certain that I will crossfire or sli the card.

For Reference here is the rest of the build:

Case: NZXT Phantom (Black/green)

PSU: Antec High Current Gamer Series 900w

Mother Board: ASRock Z77 Extreme4

CPU/processor: Intel Core i7-3770K


RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 8gb

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB

Optical Drive: SAMSUNG 22X DVD Burner

If anyone has any other suggestions for the rest of the build feel free I will accept all input. Thanks in advance :)

    They all perform similarly, and the only real difference is AMD vs Nvidia based on game optimization, multi-graphics card configuration in the future and power consumption. The HD 7950 will consume less power than the other two cards, is newer and is more likely to receive better performance from future drivers. I see the HD 7950 perform better to similar to the GTX 580, and scale better in CrossfireX to SLI in most benchmarks I've read.
  2. 7950 at its new price is the way to go, when overclock it beats out the 670. Go for the Sapphire dual fans versions
  3. +1 for 7950, overclocked it passes 7970/680 and is neck and neck with a 670 if both are overclocked.
