Hello,
As the title says which one should I go for?
I'm in Pakistan and was looking for Nvidia's 600 series cards in a good price, but no matter where ever I go, the Evga's Gtx 670 costs around Rs.47,000 (~ US$495), Gtx 660ti around 35K (~ US$368), Hd 7950 for 43K (~ US$452) and I was like, "What the....?" But, yesterday I found a store where the seller sells used or refurbished Gpus. And guess what, I was shocked to see the prices. ( Atleast Pakistan citizens would be, lol ).

And which PSU would you recommend, do they have overvoltage control?

CM UCP 900 watts
CM GX Series 750 watts
Corsair GS700 (700 watts)

Zotac Gtx 690: 80K (Out of the question)

Sapphire HD 7970: 44K (Your thoughts)

Zotac Gtx 670 4GB: 43K (Your thoughts)

Zotac Gtx 670 2GB: 36K (maybe purchasing)

Asus Gtx 580 Matrix: 33K (or Maybe this)

Asus Gtx 580 Direct CUII: 30K (Your thoughts)

Msi HD 7870 2gb Hawk Edition: 30k (Your thoughts)

Evga Gtx 580: 29K (Your thoughts)

Xfx HD 5970: 29K (Your thoughts)

Zotac Gtx 570: 26K (Your thoughts)

Sapphire HD 6950 2gb Dirt3 Edition: 21K (Your thoughts)

And some other low-end graphics card.

From the list of cards above, I was thinking to buy 2GB 670 or gtx 580 matrix.
So the first question I want to ask, Is there any big difference between the 2 in Gaming?
Or if you think there is a better buy for the value in the list above, please let me know.

I have a budget of 40K (~ US$420), can stretch out a little bit.

Thank You!
My current GPU: Gtx 560 Ti

My Resolution: 1280x1024 Upgrading to 1920x1200 (This is the reason for changing GPU).

I would definitely buy the GTX 670 2GB. It is much better than the 580.

1920x1200? I would get that Msi 7870 2gb for 30k and save some money for a good 600W PSU.

MSI's GTX 670 Power Edition uses the famous Twin Frozr IV cooler from the MSI Lightning and comes with a large clock speed boost out of the box, making its default clock speed even higher than GTX 680 stock clocks. I have two and i can tell you straight beast!

No problem your welcome!Here my thoughts on the cards in question at least the ones i know about The ASUS GTX 580 Direct CU II also comes with a small overclock to squeeze some extra performance out of the card. While other board vendors would charge a hefty price premium for such a design approach, ASUS only adds $5 to the cost of the GTX 580 DCII which is extremely reasonable and makes this card attractive for users who would only be looking at the reference design otherwise.The MSI Radeon HD 7870 HAWK is the MSI Lightning's smaller brother. It uses the company's signature Twin Frozr II dual-fan cooler. MSI has also increased the clock speeds of the HD 7870 HAWK to 1100 MHz GPU and 1200 MHz memory.The Sapphire do you mean the Vapor X ? If so it's quite a beast included not one, but two different settings via the dual BIOS toggle switch. By default the BIOS switch comes set in the first position, which raises the core clock speed of 950MHz, and 1425MHz for the memory. The second position allows users to select the higher performance settings of 1GHz core and 1450MHz memory.ZOTAC's GeForce GTX 670 AMP! Edition comes a premium GTX 670 implementation. The card uses the exact same PCB, cooler, memory and other components as the ZOTAC GTX 680 AMP! Edition. ZOTAC has increased clocks of their card by a large amount to exploit their custom design as much as possible.I hear the card has issue a major design error of the card makes it run to hot.The GTX 570 and R6950 i wouldn't even consider buying if i was you lol hope this helps good luck!
