Which is the best for 120/144 Hz gaming?
And, which is best for video editing (Vegas) and Maya?

Thanks in advance :wink:

The best card there would be the 780.

Price to performance wise I was thinking the HD 7970 would be the best, but I guess the higher the price, the more performance your get.

I have no idea where you get that from.

Well you asked about the best card there, a 780 will outperform a 7970. But in terms of what's relevant right now, the 7970 would be the better buy as a 770 and 780 are overpriced.

True true. Just wondering what the general public thought about each card in terms of performance and price (my mistake for not stating that in my OP).

PS. I found a guy selling a GTX 690 for $750 :tongue: Said he wants to buy a Titan. What a guy..

In term of price for performance the HD7970 is the best since it will get the same performance as a GTX 680 while the GTX770 will get the performance of a GTX680 and a GTX780 will get the performances of a GTX titan.

Whilst the GTX 770 does get the same performance as the GTX 680 (in some cases), it also uses more power and I can't really justify buying one as it's also $150 more :tongue:

Sony Vegas supports both OpenCL and CUDA, and with OpenCL being superior in performance to CUDA I'd go with an AMD card. The HD 7970 is also a mighty gaming card in its own right.

My current HD 7950 performs well in Vegas rendering times, so the HD 7970 is probably the best upgrade for me. Thanks.
