Get the answer TheBigTroll December 26, 2012 2:39:53 PM i personally dont have much of a problem recommending both. the 670 does have more stable drivers but then it costs more, performs a tad wores, and doesnt come with free games. just pick one of them. both will be great this is the 670 i was talking about. happens to come with borderlands 2 and asssasins creed 3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
