7970 Ghz is better than a 680, and for good aftermarket models is typically $50 cheaper. You also get some free games with it as well.

I disagree. WIth inferior drivers and a company that is about to go bankrupt, you had better get an Nvidia graphics card. AMD is about to be history. Goodluck with getting driver updates for that card this time next year, let alone trying to have a company honor the warranty on a 7970 card...NUFF SAID!


Just the facts bud opinions don`t float

Catalyst 12.7 and 12.11 beg to differ.
Have a look at this Nvidia driver. I think its quite funny.

So?
You realize that it is still ATI making the Radeon cards, now they are just a subsidiary of AMD. If AMD goes bankrupt (which I doubt), ATI will probably be sold off to another company (Intel, Samsung maybe) or go back to being its own organization.
Also remember that at one point Apple was on the brink of bankruptcy and now they are the largest and most successful company in the world.
