Hey all,
Since i'm using gtx 460 (served me extremely well) i think its time for a new upgrade.

And heres is my problem, i have searched for quite awhile now and i simply cannot chose !
I'm living in Denmark so cant buy from us sites and prices here are annoyingly more expenssive then other countries. ( and different from what many discussions sites people known of, hence the reason for this thread)

670:
Gainward GeForce GTX 670 (2 GB) 306 usd
Point of View GeForce GTX 670 (2 GB) 329.63 usd
ASUS GTX670-DCMOC-2GD5 (2 GB) 342.53 usd
(Cant find cheaper thats worth it)

7950:
Club 3D Radeon '13Series HD 7950 (3 GB) 280.01 usd
Sapphire RADEON HD 7950 with Boost (limited version) (3 GB) 319.24 usd
XFX Radeon HD 7950 (3 GB) 329.99 usd
Msi, powercooler, gigabyte, HIS in the same price range as XFX

7970:
Gigabyte GV-R797OC-3GD (3 GB) 412.76 usd
Saphire and club in a bit higher but almost same price ranger.

Dunno, the 7970 seems like it is a hell more expenssive but also have seen long discussions that with the new driver update that the 7950 is not worth it and you should always go for 7970.

So what do you guys think is the best to chose from with both price and performence and the brands different cooling options? I'm not to afraid to OC a bit either. Just not a extreme oc where a new cooling system is needed

Sorry for a maybe noobish question but i'm not really that much knowledge when it comes to these things.

Ps. dunno if this is necessary info but going to buy a new PSU xfx 550 proserie ( used 650w energon but heard it was an extremely bad psu even tho it have served me pretty good for 3 years. But then again only used 460 gtx.)

Thanks.

If you overclock i would NOT recommend a 7970 over a 7950 clock for clock there just about identical in performance i would also go with the sapphire boost

Thanks for the answer :) 
Though it says limited version which kinda worry me. Dunno if i used the correct translated word but im afraid it can be something like decreased performence or locked voltage etc.

If you plan to go with multiple cards, the 670, otherwise the 7950 is at least as good.
