There is some sense on here (M3RV), HD7970 in the UK can be found cheaper than 680 2gb’s and if this was not the case anyway I would still go for the 7970. I speak from personal experience only, I have seen the two run, both are excellent cards but I would be going with the HD7970 3gb as it is the better card tech wise imo, from seeing the two perform ‘for real’ friends pc’s and my own, and the data for the two cards..
If you’re a NV fanboy I won’t change your minds if you’re a AMD/ATI fanboy the same applies, I am neither. I have owned and run many gpu cards and all have been very good, but as I have said I only speak from personal experience..
Without doubt the two cards will perform superbly in any game, but the HD7970 3gb is both cheaper (at the mo), and better, well imo it is...
