3 video cards? so triple sli or xfire i assume? lol nice!

I would go with GTX 670 if your a gamer. PhysX engine intergration on games that support, enhances gameplay with adding more realistic effects.

Check out BorderLands 2 running PhysX Engine!

The Sapphire and EVGA would get usually trustworthy service being 2 of the more popular choices on each side of the spectrum. The XFX one should be the fastest out of the box with a single lifetime warranty. Though I think the EVGA card is the reference card, anybody wanna confirm that?

Yeap, Sapphire :D 
the XFX IMO would be a bit of a gamble though, even though it has lifetime warranty, I have a feeling that you might have to send it for RMA quite a few times in it's lifetime

The sapphire is the best of all three.It has the best performance at stock and when overclocked and also has one of the best coolers.

+1 to sapphire. Cooler is great, however if you want best performance out of the box your best bet is most likely the XFX card. Their cooler is also good as well.

As much as I love the GTX 670 (I have one myself), I think the Sapphire 7970 is a better buy now, especially after AMD's driver updates.

Well, this is my first computer build, and therefore I am pretty ignorant in terms of reading specs of video cards and how they apply to what I will use them for. So, I am trying to get a knowledable communities input on the issue. Is that not a form of research? If you don't know something, usually the easiest way to gain insight is to ask people who do know the subject better. I hope that makes sense. THANKS!

Well, if not for the community here, I would have gone through with my 8 stage upgrade program for my Pentium 4 that would have cost way....more than grabbing a 2d hand Core2 from a friend a few years ago :lol:
