    Default 670 vs 680 vs 770 vs 7970

    So I need opinions. I thinking of a new VC and I was thinking going green.

    The problem is I'm really a Red guy. So my question do I go 770, 670, 680 or stay Red with another 7970.

    Or wait for something new.

    Thoughts.

    Thanks for the input.

    Both the new GTX780 and the GTX770 kick the 7970s ass. When you have a chance send me a PM

    Stan's an Nvidia fanboy, take what he says with a grain of salt LOL.

    Depends if you wanna wait or not. Nvidia > AMD. Then AMD launches and > Nvidia. Then Nvidia responds. Never ends. Jump in when you can/need/afford and don't look back.

    Also depends what you need the card for. Just gaming? Nvidia is better now. Mining? Any POS AMD card will smoke every Nvidia card on the market.

    The key word I see there is another 7970. If that's the case, then it's a no brainer. 2 7970s will decimate any of those cards in a single setup. If you're talking about selling your 7970 and going SLI? The 770 in SLi makes the most sense to me. Dropping 1300+ bux on two 780s just seems a bit irrational, not that 800 is completely rational, but selling your current card off lessens that blow substantially.

    Adding another 7970 would cost you 4-500, depending on the card and where you're at and provide the most performance upgrade for the money.

    If selling the 7970 and going for an SLI setup, 770 SLI would be awesome and only cost about the price of a single 7970, provided you receive a respectable return on your 7970.

    670 option is out, in my honest opinion.

    780 is a terrible value in your current option set.

    So this would not be for Xfire. This would be purely for fun. I have 2 -3770k's, the new card would go in one. For work reasons I must always have a computer available.

    So my main machine is not overclocked in any way and it will stay that way. The card would be for my 2nd 3770k system, this would be the my overclocking/tinkering machine.

    So another 7970 makes alot of sense, but for some reason I what to go green with this one.

    The benchmarks seem to be all over the place, sometime it looks like the 770 KA and sometimes it just looks to be a par with the 7970.

    This machine will probably be a part time folder/WCG.

    The 770 and 7970 "Ghz Edition" are pretty much neck and neck. Depends on the games you play. If I'm shelling out 400 for one card for another system, I would buy a 770 and call it a day.

    The 770 is generally a better card than the 7970 GHz. Keep in mind that framerates are only one piece of the graphics puzzle; far too many people say "Oh, Nvidia kicks AMD's ass." Maybe. Depends on the criteria. Besides, can anyone notice a real world difference between 50.7 and 52.2 FPS, for example? No. So it's not as clear cut as some may lead you to believe.

    The key is looking at the overall picture. Power consumption, noise, temperatures, features, scalability, and drivers are other considerations. In that regard, Nvidia CURRENTLY wins the overall from what I've seen after reviewing many, MANY cards. Assuming you're not building a mining rig, then I'd spring for a 770 if you need a card now.

    I'm sorely tempted to make the switch to AMD GPUs this gen, because Jake's testing has shown such epic Xfire scalability lately.
