What graphics card should i get?

Hey guys, i´m going to build a custom PC but i´m still unsure of some of the specs and specially the graphics card. The system is mainly for gaming.

I was browsing around graphics cards i could get at it ended at the Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 GHZ 3GB graphics card or one of the GTX 680s. I know the 7970 is beating the 680 at the moment bbut im really liking the physx idea and would like to use it on Planetside 2 also, it looks very neat. So please help me with my decision, Nvidia Gtx 680 or amd 7970 ghz? Also ill be mainly running on one 1080p monitor for a while, so i´m not sure if the GTX 680 4gb is necessary.

Motherboard: ASRock Extreme6 Z77 Motherboard
CPU: Intel Core i7 3770K Unlocked 4-Core 3rd Gen Processor
Cooling: Corsair Hydro Series H80i CPU Cooler, and some fans.
Power supply: Antec HCG-900 900W High Current Gamer Power Supply ATX
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB(2x 8GB) RAM (CMZ16GX3M2A1866C10)
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 OEM 64-Bit
SSD: Samsung 840 Series 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive/SSD
HDD: Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 3.5" 2TB SATA 6.0Gb/s Hard Drive
Drive: Samsung SH-224BB/BEBS 24x Internal SATA DVD OEM Burner Drive

Also if you have an ideas or comments on the build, i would love to read it and maybe change somethings.

  1. forget the gtx 680 as it is not worthwile as there is only 5% difference between gtx 670 and 680 + big price gap.

    if you want nvidia then get gtx 670.

    my choice would be hd 7970 as for me physicx is really not worthwile
