I'm having trouble deciding on which card to buy, the ASUSS 7970 Direct CUII or the MSI Lighting TwinFrozr4. They're both the 7970.

I'll have a i7-3770k, and a 750W supply. It's going to be with a gigabyte z77x-ud5h, and it's going to be in a 600t.
Here's the system I was planning on building:

CPU: i7-3770k
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB ((2 x 4GB)x2)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM
Storage: Crucial M4 64GB 2.5"
Video Card: Deciding
Case: Corsair 600T White Graphite
Power Supply: Corsair Professional 750W 80 PLUS Silver
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Ho
Other: Fan ($18.00)

I'm looking at buying local, not online, just in case of refunds/etc.

I'm leaning slightly towards the AMD side, though I could possibly try the GT600 series.

OVERCLOCKING: Yes, crossfire: No.

it's going to be running 1920x1080

Here are the two cards.

I'm not looking for quietness, I'm looking for performance, and overclockability. Which one should I Choose?

Thanks guys! :D 

PS. What is this GPU reactor thing on the MSI one? Thanks!

He had some problems with core clock. He couldnt OC it more than the Freq that he bought it .

Maybe its a rare case idk.

But still even if MSI was perfect im with Asus .
