Hello, denizens and ITs of New-I mean Tom's Hardware!

Short question, and I want a good answer: What works better for price per value on a single 1080p display (possibly eyefinity, but not anytime soon) for gaming, and only gaming at max settings, and with the 3570k? I don't really plan to overclock [the card] much at all, but don't see what could go possibly wrong if I try.

I plan to play games like bf4, TES: online, planetside 2, yadda yadda, whatever. You get my drift.

Suggestions for each card

7950: Gigabyte, MSI, Sapphire Vapor-X (word on the street is that a recent Trixx update removes the voltage lock :heink:  )
670: MSI PE, Asus DCII, Gigabyte, FTW

Which of each category has good cooling and good overclocks? And what brand would be best for crossfiring/sli in the future?

All suggestions, except trolls, are welcome.

If you aren't overclocking, go with the EVGA 670 FTW. It's cooler handles its factory overclock just fine, and it's the fastest stock overclock.

For the 7950, if the vapor-x really is voltage unlocked, then it'll outpower anything else on your list.

Well the coolest would be Asus. And the fastest FTW.

Ftw has 680PCB and cooler and runs really good.

About the 7950 Gigabyte or vapor-X .

And +1 to :For the 7950, if the vapor-x really is voltage unlocked, then it'll outpower anything else on your list.
