Long time reader, first time poster. I've built my first rig this summer Ill list the components below. Im just about done with it but i need a GPU before i go back to college. I've been looking at the 6900 series then up to 7950, now im fine with buying a 7970, then doing crossfire in a few months or by nxt year. I also plan to buy a 120hz monitor so want to be able to display the proper amount of frames. From Newegg what is the better brand/build of the 7970s currently? and how could i tell for the future. I was trying to use the Core clock speed and Effective Memory Clock and reviews, but i read here tht its more important how the components work together and what not. im not impartial to go going with a gtx 670 either so gimmie some feed back please.
MSI twinfrozr III
Sapphire Toxic edition.
MSI lightning (if you are not into extreme clocking then this card is just overpriced and overkill but it lives up to its title)
Gigabyte Windforce (don't like blue pcb's but thats largly cosmetics)
Asus Direct CU
