My friend is building a new rig and wants to know.
What is a more future proof GPU?
Evga Gtx 680FTW 4gb
or
Sappire 7970 Ghz Edition 6gb

My friend plays @ 1080p and does not want to have to upgrade for at least 3 years. The use is for games such as Battlefield 3 (and 4 in the future), Skyrim, GTA 5, COD series, and many other games.
So which is better?

haha easy 680 for sure. The 680 is gonna last you for more than 5 years.

My GTX 260 still can play all the games today at medium settings and I bought it in 2007.

i think they will both play well at 1080 for the next 3 years i would go with the 7970.

Sapphire 7970 Ghz. Skip the 6 gb version, it is not needed.

LOL with the new drivers the HD7970 equals and in some cases beat the GTX680. AND it is cheaper with 3 or 4 free games added...
