Hey guys I am currently upgrading my pc I was just wondering if any of you guys could help me out to pick a graphic card!

I was personally thinking one of these three : GTX 670 4GB / GTX 680 2GB / AMD 7970

I use a 1920x1080 resolution.

I been searching around the internet but I have no clue what to pick, so a friend of mine recommended this forum.

thanks in advance.

I would suggest 670 2GB or 7970. If you like physx then 670, if not then whichever is cheaper. You don't need 4 GB VRAM for 1920x1080.

So the 680 is just not needed? or just bad compared to the other two?

Im running a 3gb 660ti and everything i cn throw at it at 1080p is silky smooth, save yourself the $$ and just get a well clocked 660ti over the 670 imo, it will run faster and be cheaper to boot.

The 680 is overpriced compared to the performance gain from a 670.

As the price goes up, the value goes down. That's just the way it is.

If you're not bent on value, the 680 is going to give you the best performance.

You think I can run any game on High and get 60 fps with a 670?

The 670 is a great deal and should keep you above the 60 fps mark at 1080p (exception Metro 2033). The charts in this review are pretty new and have the 670 with the 680:

You don't need a 4GB card at 1080p. Just get the 2GB.
