I am thinking about getting one of these 3 cards for a new system and would like some advise on which would be the best value for the money.
My monitor is 1920x1080.
While I am willing to buy an overclocked version of the card, I will not be doing any overclocking once I get the card.
Initially I was leaning towards the 670 card, but now I'm wondering if the cheaper 660 or 7950 might be a better option. However, everything I read about the 7950, overclocking is mentioned and I can't seem to find any opinions about it without overclocking.
Is the boost worth it in the 7950 cards?
These were the two 670 cards I was initially considering:
Best value would be 7950. Awesome card. I wanted it, but it was way overpriced where I live. It was $90usd more than the 660ti. With that said, in the US, the 7950 can be found on the cheap side ($300) whereas the 670s are usually $380.
The 670 is a higher end card than the 7950, but the 7950 can play any game and at extreme quality on a 1920x1080. My vote is for a 7950. If you resolution was 1440p then I'd say 670.
By editing, I was referring to using Photoshop CS6. If you edit large photo files then an i7 is better, but that's
usually for amateur and above photographers. I use Photoshop Elements and my i5 is great.
