Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Storage: Samsung 830 Series 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk
Power Supply: Antec High Current Gamer 620W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V (might get a 750W)

I'm thinking about getting the PowerColor Radeon HD 7870 2GB Video Card but im not 100% which one to choose. I plan on overclocking and getting more fans to keep it cool. Ill probably end up spending atleast 300euros on the card because i need the rig to last atleast 2 or 3 years from now.(preferably high settings at a solid fps) Thanks for you help

GTX 670 or a 7950 should be about 300 euros. (no idea what country you're in)

If those aren't around 300 euros, then ya. 7870 would be your best bet. (the new amd drivers put it on par with GTX 660 ti which is more expensive than the 7870 ghz edition)

Both the 78xx's are great for the price. You won't need a more powerful PSU for either of those cards or a 670/7950. Those Antec High currents are good quality units too.

If you decide to go AMD, go with Sapphire. They have the best reputation. A 7870 is a great card and a great value. I recommend it. If you need the rig to last 2 or 3 years though, I would go with a 7950 or a 670. Your psu should handle any of those cards.
