Ok with that said, I did some research looks like Nvidia just threw the GTX 680 out there to compete with the 7970 with no real planning.
So now I just wonder what brand to go with for a 7970.
Is the gigabyte 7970 as solid as their 6850/6870s?
Sapphire is known for never having DOAs, like XFX does. Well that has probably changed since the 3000/4000 radeon series.
Hows VisionTek these days? I have no brand loyalty I am just interested in the best product for what I need.
