Which GPU do you think I should get? Tags: Graphics Cards Build Graphics Product Last response: October 18, 2012 3:22 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Jamesb57 October 18, 2012 1:43:04 AM 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=N82E168... or the Sapphire 7970 OC http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

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. maestro0428 a b U Graphics card October 18, 2012 2:08:40 AM 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. Related resources What GPU do you think I should run?

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 robnof October 18, 2012 3:22:10 AM The 7970 is a good choice. I own one myself and I've been very much pleased with the results its given me. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: ForumWhich GPU should I choose?
