Well, the title states my first question, anyway, haha. Is it worth spending the extra money to get the Superclocked version? Does it make a huge difference?

Secondly, is it worth going for the 670 over the 660 ti?

Lastly, are the 7950 and 7970 better than the two nVidia cards listed above?

Thanks for the help everyone!

Bettwen 670 Sc & Ftw go for the FTW cuz it has 680 Pcb and cooler.

Bettwen the 4 card go with Asus/Sapphire 7970 !

Thanks for the reply.

One more thing to add - one of the major games I will be playing is Battlefield 3 - from the benchmark you linked to, the GTX 670 seemed to perform much better than the 7970 in BF3. Would that make a huge difference? Or at this point are we speaking basically of incremental differences?

Only in Bf3.

Personally i would get the 670 Ftw.

Games are GPU dependant like BF3 for nvidia and PS2 for Ati.

So u cant never decide but as u are playing Bf3 mostly get the 670 Asus/Ftw

GTX 670 FTW has been great for me.

Oced it to 1150 mhz core and about 6.5ghz memory (i bet i can oc the memory more, but too lazy to do it since i haven't had any problems with any games yet)

pretty much maxing every game at 60 fps with dips to 45-50 fps.


The difference between a EVGA GTX 670 SC and a EVGA GTX 670 FTW is that the FTW is on a GTX 680 board with the 680 cooler. That's why it runs cooler and is higher clocked than the EVGA GTX 670 SC.

the EVGA GTX 670 SC is also no longer in production i think... that's why the prices are so damn high...

says the person that's comparing a 7970 stock to a stock GTX 670 (not the FTW edition)

EVGA GTX 670 FTW is factory oced to 1006 mhz core with boost up to 1084 mhz... and performs on par with a stock GTX 680... And i've also never seen a GTX 670 FTW that can't be overclocked to around 1150mhz core or higher...

And you're also not telling him that the 7970 runs really hot and consumes a good bit more power...

200W For 670 Stock and 280 For 7970 on stock.

Read the next post retard before correcting me.

And it isnt on par with stock 680 -.-' Learn more about cards before posting wrong. It still has less cuda cores . Diffcult to catch up

you should also learn about cards before posting.
stock GTX 680 outperforms the GTX 670 FTW by 2-3% if even that... you can easily oc the GTX 670 FTW to 1.1ghz core clock or above which will beat the stock 680. The GTX 680 is $100 more than the gtx 670 FTW...

You know what's funny? in the Hexus review YOU posted, it showed that the GTX 670 FTW beating out the GTX 680 in some games and losing to it in other games. guess you don't know how to read words or graphs either.

now stop being retarded and posting reviews based on old drivers.

they're using stock cards... (GTX 680 is at 1006mhz core and GTX 670 is at 915mhz core) and comparing past performance of the stock to FTW, you should be able to see a similar bump in performance which puts it about par with GTX 680.

Use your head before posting.
