I'm bulding computer for new games:GTA 5,BF4,CRYSIS,GW2 (mostly of it). So for now i have this:
-MSI Z77A-GD55
-INTEL Core i5 3570K 3.4GHz 6MB BOX LGA1155
-CORSAIR Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9G 8GB (2x4GB) PC12800 DDR3
-WD WD1002FAEX 1TB 7.2/64M/S600 Black Edition
-ZALMAN Z11 Plus
-SCYTHE Ninja 3 SCNJ-3000 Rev. B
-CORSAIR GS700 Gaming Series 700W

Now I cant decide about graphic card. I think I will buy 7970HD but I dont know which one. Should I buy GHZ edition or overclok it by my self? And from which "company" should I buy,I know Asus,MSI,Gigabyte are the bust but what about Sapphire.

Tnx for opinion and help.

Are you planning to overclock or dual gpu? What's your budget? I'm assuming you don't need a monitor, os, mouse or keyboard. For Radeon HD's, Sapphire is my favorite brand. They look sick, reasonable price most of the time and easily overclockable.

If you're on a single monitor, a 7950 is good. You only get like 10% more frames with a 7970 on a single monitor. I recommend MSI or Gigabyte.

I dont rly have a budget,but i donta want to spend too much so i woud say 1150euros.I woud over clock and maybe go later,after 2years too dual gpu.I know saphhire is cheaper then oders,but this is what concers me and i dont have a lot of information about their quality. And i will use 2 monitors,Msi cost too much in my country,gigabyte ghz edition also cost more then sapphire ghz so i dont know. First i woud like to know if i should take ghz edition or not,diffrenc is about 70-90euros.

A ghz edition is just a 7970 with higher stock clocks. Get a regular 7970 non ghz and overclock it yourself.

Now i only need to decide which brand to take. MSI cost too much (500€),ASUS have heat pipes problems, so I need to decide Gigabye or Sapphire.

I think I will take Sapphire,yes it's OC and maybe its better to be so becaouse I never overclocked graphic. So i have few questions.

1.Is Sapphire/Gigabyte good brand ? (does they have failurs,do they have good support...)
2.If later I take same graphic card for crossfire will there be enough space ?
3.Is this cool system enogh good ?

Thanks for answers and help.
