I currently have a 6670 DDR3 1Gb video card and this was just for a temporary video card. I am looking for a new graphics card and my budget is $200 - $400. I have my eyes set on either a 7870 or a 7950. The 7950 just so if i ever want to crossfire i can bios unlock it to a 7970 and xfire with another 7970 or 7950. But i am having doubts about those cards and want to try nvidia also. So my question is what card should i get between the budget of $200 - $400?

How does 7950 and a 670 compare when overclocked?

They trade blows. But the 7950 is at 300$ while the 670 is 350$. What games do you play? Resolution? Build Specs? Never ask without this info! :)

Go for 7950. Especially if you're overclocking. And The 3GB VRAM and higher bandwidth will help you future-proof and as-well get better high resolution (Multi-Monitor) performance.

Can you explain a little bit more of the data cause just percent difference doesn't really explain much

In those reviews there are multiple games tested so if you look at the other pages you get the fps in those games.
