My new all in one machine, Home Theater, Gaming and general all around machine. Need some help choosing my video card. I received the case from my kids for Christmas (It limits me to 10.5 (266 mm) for my graphics card).
System:
Antec One
Corsair TX750M
Intel Core i5-3570K
Asrock X77 Extreme 4
G.skill F3-1600C8D-8GAB
Intel SSD 330 Series 120GB
Seagate Barracuda 3TB 7200RPM (2X Total of 6TB)
Windows 8 Pro

Two graphics cards that will fit.
EVGA 670 FTW 02G-P4-2678-KR (10inches)
Powercolor AX7970 3GBBD5-2DHV3 (10.5 inches)

My gaming is done at 1920x1200 at the present but at some point I will get a higher res monitor. Mostly I play FPS. I use a Samsung 55 LCD for movies and TV. I will be gaming on only one monitor and I generally use XBMC for Home Theater duties. I'm leaning towards the 7970 ($20.00 cheaper and free games) at the moment unless someone came tell me the 670 is a better choice in my case. Any advice or options are appreciated.
Thanks

670. Better drivers give you a better user experience over the life of the product. Going with the 7970 saves you $20, but buys you headache.

Went with the 7970 so far no problems. Speed is great and image quality is excellent. No more annoying micro stutter playing MKV files.
