    The 670's got the best performance, while the 760's got the best value.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    Completely missed that it was a GHz edition.
    Indeed the 7970 GHz is the most powerful of the 3.

    Why don't you just get a 280X? Its a rebranded 7970 Ghz but with better mem specs and it's cheaper.

    Well the things is,that the 7970 and the 7970 GHZ edition compares to the nvidea GTX 770.
    If you can,get a 7970 for 3 games and not 2(for the 280x) for 300$, sometimes on special sales that i see you can go that way.

    Otherwise get a r9 280 for about the same performance ,2 Games and the same winner price-300$ this price point is not for nvidea.

    100% agree with @Doc . however i've heard reports of the 280x running ridiculously hot and loud.

    The gtx 670 is slightly faster than the 760. If you can I'd recommend the gtx 770.
    Nothing here...Move it along.
