  1. And a 7870 2GB
  2. A 7950 will max out most games currently, while the 7870 may not. Get a 7950. Make sure to get one with custom coolers as overclocking will allow you to keep at max settings for a longer period of time. Btw, there is little to no way to future proof your system. The only advantage of getting a 7870 would be to take advantage of the savings now to buy a better, high end card in 3 years. By that time, your system may bottleneck a high end card anyways. Basically, spend what you can now, and upgrade when you need to upgrade.
  3. buy a nvidia gtx 670 its around the same price of 7950 and give much better performance with intel processors
  4. I highly recommend getting a 670. It's around the same price as stated, and games will work better with it since they'll be more optimized for nVidia cards. Also, I also do believe they work better with Intel CPUs. People don't often go get a nVidia GPU with an AMD CPU or a AMD/ATi card with a Intel CPU. In the long run you'll be happier with the 670. Here are some of the best 670 cards:

    (MSI, highly recommend. Best cooling soloutions, features, and performance. It even removes dust when you boot your PC every time)

    I don't know where you are but HD 7950 is much cheaper than GTX 670. HD 7970 is the same price as GTX 670.

    Why would you get a GTX 670 if HD 7970 is the same price and will curb stomp it into the ground.

    HD 7970 is the best choice if you are even considering buying a GTX 670 since it comes with 2 games and is cheaper.
