I was wondering what to get for my new pc and i was thinking of either a 670 or a 7970? My budget is 400 dollars, but that is flexible. I will use it for gaming and want the best bang for the buck. Any ideas?
My setup is
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz
Motherboard: Asus P8P67 PRO (REV 3.1)
Memory: Corsair Series 16GB (4 x 4GB)
Power Supply: Cooler Master 850W ATX12V / EPS12V
Monitor: Asus VH236H 23.0" Monitor and another dell one that is 22 inches.
I play Dota 2, Diablo 3, Rage, Batman, and metro 2033.
either is a fine choice, but i know for sure batman is nvidia favored, and i believe metro is too as of the current moment. the other 3 are not intensive enough and probably be obliterated by either choice. though the differences between the two are moderately small in 1920x1080.
edit: if you ever decide to go past your 1920x1080 barrier by adding additional screens or playing 2560x1600 then that's where the 7970 will shine.
