Hey guys,

So I've had my GTX 560 ti 448 core for about half a year, and I was thinking about upgrading it.
I was thinking either a GTX 670 or a Radeon 7950. Will i see a difference in performance if i upgrade to either of these?
Here are my components:

Motherboard: Asus p8z68 deluxe
CPU: i5 2500k @ 4.9ghz
GPU: EVGA GTX 560TI 448 core
SSD: Intel 330 180GB
HDD: WD Caviar Black 1TB
RAM: G-Skill Ares 8GB DDR3 1866
PSU: Seasonic x650 80 Gold Certified
Case: Obsidian 800D
Cooling: XSPC Raystorm, XSPC EX360 Radiator, D5 laining pump.

Also thinking about watercooling the video card too, so which of these 2 would overclock better?

Thanks for the help!

The gtx 670 is a better card but it is also ~$50 more, so price/performance the 7950 is slightly better. Both cards should overclock well. You can't really go wrong with either one.

+1 to Derza, But it all depends on your budget and overclocking capabilites. With the recent amd driver update, the 7950 has seen quite a bit of performance enhancement from 12.10. Also, if you plan to play on 1080p or lower, go with 670, but 1080p or higher, go with 7950. The 3gb of vram on the 7950 will allow you to apply more AA instead of killing your card. The 670 has the advantage of physx, but suffers from performance drops at the cost of rocks flying out of whatever the *** you shoot at.

It's up to you. This will probably be the hardest part of building or upgrading a system.
