Gigabyte GTX 670 OC (2GB) vs Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 OC (3GB)

Hi guys,

I'm looking to build a pc, and I've decided on everything bar the graphics card.

Current (core) specs:

Case: Sharkoon T28
PSU: Antec HCG-750 750W High Current Gamer 80PLUS 135mmfan
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H, Intel Z77 Chipset, Socket 1155, 7.1 CH
CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K LGA1155 CPU 3.4Ghz 6Mb Cache Ivy Bridge
RAM: Kingston 8G(2x4G) DDR3 1600MHz CL9 HyperX

Now, I'm looking at either:
Sapphire ATI HD 7970 OC EDITION V2, 3GB
(AU$399.00 where I am,


Gigabyte GTX 670 OC 2 GB
(AU$419.00 where I am,

I'm not actually too worried about the price, either-or suits me.

Which would work best?

I'd be looking at playing games like Fallout: New Vegas (with many, many mods), Skyrim (Also with many, many mods), Crysis 3 and ARMA III, when it comes out.

Which option would be best, and should I change any of my other components?
