GTX670 FTW is better.


:) 


Really, they are comparable, and you can't tell the difference between them in actual use.

I happen to like the nvidia drivers better, and I also like the direct exhaust coolers that EVGA uses.

Look here.

The 670 there is only a 2gb one or does memory not matter?

Not unless your going to use more then 2GB. Most games will only take advantage of 2GB. Although Max Payne 3 takes advantage of 3GB. So unless your playing Max Payne 3, VRAM doesn't matter.

Try newegg, for the price of the 670 on tiget you can get a 7970 Ghz, or that saffire for 380.

7970 overclocked (or ghz) with current drivers beats the 670 in most benches, and even the 680, you can't look at year old benchmarks.

Notice the recent Titan article? Compared Titan, 690, 680, and 7970. 670 wasn't even in there.

Which model would you recommend on newegg?

At comparable prices, you will get comparable performance.
Do not sweat minor differences.

For benchmarks, use google to find benchmarks using your cpu, games, and resolution.

And... benchmarks may still not tell all.
There is a growing interest in consistency of response times. Or lag as some call it.
It is an annoyance that is not detected on the average or even minimum fps statistics.
Here is one article about it comparing a GTX660ti and a 7950:

As to the amount of vram, I am thinking it is mostly marketing.
Here is one study comparing 2gb vs 4gb:

Try this graphics card, it comes pre overclocked and i have no doubt you can push it further.
