Should I get the Zotac GeForce GTX 670 2GB or Visiontek AMD RadeonHD 7970 3GB?
For the exact same price?

For the same price? 7970. Anybody who says that a GTX 670 is better than a 7970 is making no sense at all. A 7970 trade blows with a GTX 680 with the latest 12.7 BETA drivers. If you give it a good overclock it will eat the GTX 680 so definitely get the 7970

yeah definitely the 7970. It was released with horrid driver support so a lot of the benchmarks showed poor performance. When the 680/670 came out a lot of reviewers simply matched the 680/670 benchmarks against the original 7970 benchmarks without rerunning them using new drivers.

With Catalyst 12.7 it eats the 680 alive when overclocked.

Actually the 600 series had even worst drivers the the 7970 did at launch, I was unable to use 120hz and that terrible vsync bug and horrible stuttering. Furthermore the most ridiculous thing of all is the reviewers pitch a stock 7970 against the keplers which have an autoboost feature up to 1200mhz OC. Both cards are awesome though but the 680 needs a price drop however, if you're ever going 3D though stick to Nvidia.

I know that the 600 series drivers were a bit buggy but the Catalyst drivers didn't have actual support for GCN until Catalyst 12.3, it's in the patch notes. They launched in January with Catalyst 12.1. The product wasn't supported at all until 2 months after release
