Should I go with the 3gb ATI 7970 or a 2gb Nvidia GTX670 graphics card?

by on December 5, 2012

Q: Hello,
Im creating a parts list to build my new pc.
However im stuck on which graphics card to choose. In my price range im looking at either a 3gb ATI 7970 or a 2gb Nvidia GTX670. Both have similar clock speeds but one has more ram and the other is a more reliable make. So please help me decide which is the superior card?

    By reliable make I assume your not talking ATI vs nVidia but instead the specific card manufacturers such as XFX, Rosewill, Sapphire, etc.

    You’re also far from the only person trying to decide. Performance for both cards is pretty close. However, the internet hive-mind seems to be leaning on the ATI card.

    In the end you’re going to have a kick ass rig either way, but you’ll probably get a few more FPS out of the ATI.
