so im looking at these 2 cards, ive always been an AIT/AMD user but im doing more and more graphics and video on my machine and know that the CUDA will make a difference on the NVIDA cards BUT

sapphire vapor-x 7950 3gb - £244
EVGA 670 FTW Sig 2gb - £319

i went up to a 670 from a 660ti because of the mem bandwidth

numbers wise the nvidea seems better but does it warent the price difference?

details of rest of my potential build

cpu - i5-3570k
mobo - asus p8z77-v
ram - vengeance 16gb
ssd - crucial M4 128gb
hdd - WD black 1TB (already have)
XFX 850 black edition psu (already have)

i will be gaming on it, not a massive graphics obsessive and need to play on absolute max just high so its a nice exerience but i also want my rig to last me 3 or so years

i dont do the whole overclocking thing as i know thats a good reason to go 7950 i just want out the box plug in and work

The 7950 still performs better in many games at stock clock. I would go with that and save the money.
