My new all in one machine, Home Theater, Gaming and general all around machine. Need some help choosing my video card. I received the case from my kids for Christmas (It limits me to 10.5 (266 mm) for my graphics card).
Intel Core i5-3570K
Asrock X77 Extreme 4
Intel SSD 330 Series 120GB
Seagate Barracuda 3TB 7200RPM (2X Total of 6TB)
Windows 8 Pro
Two graphics cards that will fit.
EVGA 670 FTW 02G-P4-2678-KR (10inches)
Powercolor AX7970 3GBBD5-2DHV3 (10.5 inches)
My gaming is done at 1920x1200 at the present but at some point I will get a higher res monitor. Mostly I play FPS. I use a Samsung 55 LCD for movies and TV. I will be gaming on only one monitor and I generally use XBMC for Home Theater duties. I'm leaning towards the 7970 ($20.00 cheaper and free games) at the moment unless someone came tell me the 670 is a better choice in my case. Any advice or options are appreciated.
Go AMD. I'm not a fanboy of neither ( I use a Nvdia in my personal build and I usually go with AMD for most of the other systems I made so I use both ).
You will get better performance with the 7970 (running a bit hotter though if that's a problem where you live) but the lower price and games they now offer make the deal
