  1. Best answer
    The ASUS GTX670-DC2-2GD5 is the better performing card.

    The price difference corresponds to the performance difference.

    What is the brand and model of your power supply unit?

    For a system using a single GeForce GTX 670 graphics card NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 500 Watt or greater power supply that has a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 30 Amps or greater and that has at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

    Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Total Combined Continuous Power/Current Available on the +12V Rail(s) @ 45-50°C ambient temperature, is the most important factor.
  2. Im using a Cooler Master Silent ProM 1000watts. So it is better spend a just a little more and get the gtx 670 right ??
  3. yes, the HD 7870 isn't even really in the same class as the GTX 670. To find a more comparable AMD option you would want to look at the HD 7950 or in some cases even the HD 7970
  4. The GeForce GTX 670 would be my recommendation.

    The Cooler Master Silent Pro M1000 is way more than enough (i.e. excessive). It's enough for a system using four GeForce GTX 670 graphics cards in 4-way SLI mode.

    You could have saved yourself some money by buying the appropriate capacity high quality power supply and then using the savings to apply towards the better graphics card.
  5. You can't really compare them, the 670 is more on the performance of a 7950/70, with the 7970 sometimes being cheaper than the 670 (not the Galaxy one which always seems to be cheap).

    670 is superior.
  6. Well perfect ty for the answers i would get a gtx 670 and i get the silent prom 1000watts for futures upgrades i dont want to be limited soo thats why i get that PSU but yeah i know is a lil too much for now =P
