Which GPU do you think I should get?

I am planning on making a gaming build and I have chosen the majority of the parts of the build, but I have yet to decide on a gpu. I have narrow it down pretty much to two.
MSI GTX 670 PE http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127685&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-_-pla-_-NA-_-NA
or the
Sapphire 7970 OC http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102982&name=Desktop-Graphics-Cards
I am not limited to these two so make any other suggestions. Thank you for any help.

More about which
  1. Without telling us the rest of the build, budget and what games, number of monitors, resolution and quality you will be using it is hard to recommend a card.

    Personally, I would get the 7970 especially for surround gaming but would lean to the 670 for single monitor usage since it is quieter and cooler.
  2. I would look at benchmarks for the games you play and see which card comes out on top. They are both great cards and I think you would be happy with either one.
  3. Im going to have to say that this video card is better then both the gtx 670 and the 7970 in all benchmarks.


    Im kidding, As jay said 670 for a single mon setup because it is a quieter card but if you plan to have a multi setup go with the 7970
  4. The 7970 is a good choice. I own one myself and I've been very much pleased with the results its given me.
