It's current pricing is pretty hard to beat. That deal on the 670 is pretty good but I am not a fan of galaxy cards myself. meneedhelp October 18, 2012 5:12:20 AM Well that's a few months from now before I buy a higher res. monitor. But If I don't then would I still be best with 7970? Related resources Losing my mind picking between GTX 670 and HD 7970 ..
