7970 CF will be better... But make sure you have a suffiecient case cooling and an 850W PSU...

I have xfx 850 w gold certified fully modular
And zalman z11 plus hf1

Its better going with regular 7970 or the ghz edition like the gigabyte?

I heard that the gigabyte ghz edition was just a normal 7970 that was oc by gigabyte so we cant go major oc ... Same for the gigabyte gtx 670 oc !

2gb sli or crossfire is enough ?

I did search but im really confused because some people says that 7970 is the way to go abd other says that the gtx 670 sli own 7970 xfire...

And i have the feeling that the gigabyte 7970 ghz edition is not a true ghz edition like the sapphire vapor x .. Is it just me or ...??

That is true... It doesnt really matter though... Just buy whatever is cheaper... Also what resolution are you gaming on? On 1080p 2GB is enough but anything higher, 3GB is recommended...

I recently bought two msi twin frozen overclocked GTX 670s (1020mhz base and 1098mhz boost) and put them in SLI and am very happy. I have run crossfire in the past but found the drivers to be far more finicky then sli not to mention the added benefit of physx support (natively w/o hacked drivers). Using my 670s I can play crysis 3 maxed out on 1080p ultra with x8 MSAA 16x AF @40+fps average. With the Stock overclock the perform close to on par with gtx 680's and the twin frozen is dead silent even under full load. Pull the trigger on the GTX's and I promise you'll be happy.

I had the grx 670 gigabyte and sold it because somebody gave me 400 for it ( ive paid 340 ) and ive wanted to try 7970 but i think i did a mistake ! I will probably order 2 other gigabyte gtx 670 than ! Lol fml

gigabyte 7970 3gb crossfire is also not a bad idea.

I would say 670 sli as you can overclock then well too.
