Hi everyone!


I have a build:

MONITOR: Eizo FS 2333
KEYS: Logitech G110
MOUSE: Logitech G600
HEAD: Logitech G35
CAM: Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920

INTEL Core i7-3770 3.40GHz 1155 BOX
ASROCK Z77 Pro4
OCZ 240GB SATA3 2,5" Vertex 3 VTX3-25SAT3-240G
KINGSTON 16384MB HyperX DDR3 1600MHz
WD 2000GB Caviar Black 7200rpm 64MB SATA3 WD2002FAEX
ENERMAX REVOLUTION87+ 650W
ALPENFOEHN Brocken
ASUS DRW-24B5ST Black OEM
FRACTAL DESIGN Arc Midi Tower

VGA: 680 vs 7970?


Will use the PC for editing pictures, videos, but I want all the games (and upcoming games) to run on max specs (Full HD - 1920x1080) even if I'm using fraps or streaming meanwhile.
I don't know how to overclock and such, so I won't use that "function".


Thanks! :)

For 1920x1080 GTX 670 will max out just about any game out there. No need to pay more and it would be stupid to pay less, it's just what you need.

It's recommended by Tomshardware.

Radeon 7970 would only be a viable option at higher resolutions and if you were to overclock. GTX 680 is simply too expensive compared to what performance you get.

I agree with lost gamer, no need for purchasing a more expensive video card if the 670 can max out every game in existance and i'm pretty sure it will max even the upcoming GTA 5 and Dead Space 3

Thanks for the suggestions!

680 and 7970 got suggested because I will use the PC for heavy video and picture editing/rendering, etc...
In this case, 670 would be still enough?
And if you had to chose between 680 and 7970, which would you chose?

680 vs 7970 = 670. The 680 is just too much buck for bang, similar story with 7970. Anyway id stick with nvidia. Drivers, support, performance etc...
