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. m 0 l 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? m 0 l Related resources Need help choosing gtx 670 or hd 7970 - Forum GTX 670 or Radeon HD 7970 for a gaming pc? - Forum HD 7970 3GB CF vs. GTX 670 2GB SLI @ 5760x1080 - Forum GTX 670 vs HD 7970 - Forum Powecolor HD7970 925MHZ 3GB V3 or Gigabyte GTX 670 OC 980MHZ 2GB 6.0GHZ - Forum Can't find your answer ?
