Im Upgrading from a 5770 and have around 400$ to spend....
Im looking at the 7970 (not sure which one)
Im also looking at the gigabyte 670 Windforce. However I heard its not the best card out there and their customer service isnt the best. And ive heard its absolutely amazing...
This will go into my current build while I a mass the funds for a new build.
Like I said I have around 400$.
Im really leaning towards the Gigabyte 670... for 360$ on Newegg.com

What games do you play?

The 670 and 7970 are basically equal with the 7970 better in some games with the 670 better in others.

Pretty much anything to everything i tend never to stick to one game. If that helps at all....

Well, I'd go with the 7970. The prices on the 7970 are dropping to $410 next week. But, w/ manufacturer rebates, it will be cheaper.

I can get a 670 for less than 400$. why would you go with the 7970 for 400$

The 7970 OC's like a beast, so it can easily beat the 670/680.

Allright what 7970's would you recommend so I can do some more research. Still leaning 670 but still on the fence. Any other 670's someone might recommend? Or aviod.

Actually seeing the price drop on 7970, I think that I will change my recommendation to this 7970:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

AMD does a really good job on keeping their GPUs pricing competitive.

EDIT: Generally 7970 is a stronger card, but untill recently more expensive. However, now that this is not the case, there is no reason not to prefer them.
