Gigabyte GV-R797OC-3GD or Gigabyte GVN670OC-2GD

Can't decide between the Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card or the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670 2GB Video Card. Looking to play games like BF3, Crysis 2 (and soon 3), Skyrim, and other large title games at Ultra. May or may not run them in SLI or Crossfire for a triple monitor setup. Also using them for GPU enhanced rendering and editing. Any suggestions in which one to get.

  1. With latest drivers hd 7970 beats gtx 670.so my choice would be hd 7970.
  2. They are both fantastic cards, but I would be a little nervous about running them in SLI or Xfire unless you've got a little bit of space between them due to the design of the cooler.

    HD7970 is definitely ahead of gtx670 in gaming in most of the cases.Now for rendering,what applications are you going to use?
    Different softwares behave differently and can be suitable to either side.If you are referring to MAYA then without doubt hd7970.It for AutoCAD then Nvidia cards have advantage in 3D.HD7970 is overall a better card with better mix of compute power and gaming power.
