I need to know what graphics cards to get sli gtx 670 or crossfire 7970???

Which one performs better and consumes less power and heat.

I'll mainly be playing crysis, witcher 2, tes v skyrim and battlefield 3.

GTX 670 is cooler and consumes about 150+ watts less at max load.

At Skyrim, it really doesn't matter since you'll be running circles around it with those cards. GTX 670 wins at Crysis 2, HD7970 at Crysis. Witcher 2 would be 670, and BF3 would also be 670.

Thank's a-lot great help. I'm gonna go with 2 670's I play most of them with a crazy enb and extreme graphics mod's I saw a video on youtube where a guy was playing skyrim maxed everything on with an enb and everything he only got 30-40fps with a 680 so I don't know :??: 

What kind of fps would I be getting with 2 670's playing those games maxed out everything turned on and with graphics mods??? Doesn't have to be exact.

You know, it realy dosen't matter - lol - for the little you will save or spend extra - you're getting a helluva pixel pusher no matter which way you go!! ;) 

--> try not to worry too much at the horsepower level you're describing

--> both companies will ensure major releases are covered in sli/xf profile updates. On the other hand, not all games benefit equally by going dual card!
