    Since you're planning to overclock video card, this ^

    Unless you really need Sabertooth, switch to something cheaper, like Z77 Extreme4 or Z77X-D3H/UD3H. Saves you 100$.

    Agility 3 is slow and relatively unreliable. Get Samsung 830. Either 256GB or 128GB.

    If RAM reliability is not very important, G.Skill will be fine. Otherwise go with Crucial, Samsung or Kingston.

    Switch PSU to Seasonic X 650W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151088

    At least it was done using Maximum settings. That sort of settings anyone buying a high-end PC would want to play on.

    Read the rest of the article instead of just looking at the pictures.

    The results are skewed anway;
    And I didn't drag you into anything. Nice edit...

    tbh i thought fella was posting graph in support of amd saying only 110% difference or whatever the max framerate was, i disregarded the physx bias and overlooked the minimum, hence my at the very least misleading -not for citing the physx bias - comment.
    but sure if physx didn't exist or we had 8GHz and beyond processors then i'm dual 7970 lightnings.

    Live the dream of not having an AMD card making jet noises in your PC rig and turning it into a real furnace with its temps ;)

    Go for a GTX 670 mate , Asus directu cu ii has the same performance as the 680 with better cooling and noise levels + CHEAPER , cheers!

    I edited it to leave it for now...

    Don't drag me into this. I don't give a single f*ck about BL2. If I did and wanted to play it maxed out though, GTX is the only way to go. Playing PhysX title without PhysX is no different than, for example, playing DX11 title without DX11 graphics features.

    Noise and temps depend on cooling system. With proper non-reference cooler there won't be any noise/temperature problems.

    Jet noise? Furnace? what are you on about....?

    Sounds like you need to get a decent cooler, my card hits 60c max w/ fan at 30%...... and a 7950 is cheaper than even a 660Ti btw. ;)

    Agreed but it would be a bad investment just for one game....

    Playing a dx11 title without any dx11 candy is like ..playing COD on pc.

    Maybe where you live it is. At NewEgg cheapest HD 7950 is 10-15% more expensive than cheapest GTX 660 Ti. Same where I live.

    Not that it matters though. OP said he is going to OC his card, so 7950/7970 is the way to go. Preferably 7950.

    Yeah...I don't understand why pricing varies from country to country....or Northern/Southern hemisphere.

    This is how it looks in AU/NZ.....

    Its been a topsy turvy year for GPUs. 6-8 months ago, the 670/680 were much better positioned vs 7950/7970, price-wise and performance-wise, hence a solid choice. AMD though have clawed their way back since, on pricing and performance. Better drivers, faster hardware (ghz and boost models) and all at a much lower price. At this point in time, AMD are on top, almost in no-brainer territory for those looking to buy.
