In terms of "equivalent performance"...

7970 ghz (or the rebrand 280x) = 770
7950 = 760

Of course, Nvidia price tags are a quite a bit higher....

Listen, I get that you're trying to justify having spent 1300 dollars on your SLI GTX 780 set up. I understand. But even if I switch the comparison from a GHz to a standard 7970 to account for the lack of overclock on the 780, the difference isn't as great as you would like to embellish it as. In several of the cases where there is a 20-30% gap, both cards are pushing frames above and beyond 60FPS so unless you're one of the relatively few people with a 120Hz monitor, it makes little to no difference.

Other than to enlarge your e-peen, the 780 is a stupid card to buy. This is coming from someone who has been an Nvidia stalwart since we could cook eggs with Fermi. The performance quite frankly just isn't there for the cost.

I run a 2560x1440 monitor at 96hz, I can push it higher than 100hz but sometimes there is image retention so I keep it lower.

Secondly look at max overclocks vs what stock clocks are. 1200-1250mhz is pretty much the average high end overclock for a 7970 and the ghz edition runs at higher clocks than what the 780 boosts to stock so there is more overclocking headroom on the 780. Now that 780's have unlocked voltage through software hacks a majority can hit the upper 1200mhz on air and 1300mhz+ on water.

Lastly I don't have to justify anything, my job pays well enough that I can afford to buy what I want for my computer and not have to worry about paying the bills. These cards destroy any set of 7970's for 24/7 clocks and to think otherwise is just fooling yourself. Again, the 7970 is a great card and a far better buy than the 770 and honestly for most people it would probably be a better buy than a 780 but for those who can afford to have the best the 780 is the better card bar none.

Why are we comparing an OC'd 7970 with a non-OC'd 770? Both OC'd, the 770 beats the 7970 by a fair margin despite the fact that the latter overclocks better.

7970GE is basically an OC'd 7970. It slightly outperforms the OC'd 770 in some games, while the OC'd 770 performs largely better in other games.

7970GHz matches 680 in average performance at 1920x1080. It falls short of 770 without a solid overclock.
7970 nonGHz matches a 670 at stock.

At 2560x1440, HD7 series walks all over GTX6 series, and still beats out GTX7 series pretty much 100%. Above that, it favors AMD more, though GTX7 tends to scale much better than GTX6, and, IIRC, in particular, GTX760 scales almost as well as a Radeon to higher resolutions.

Edit: Oh wait, apparently 770 is still walking all over stock GE at 1440p. That's actually kinda surprising. But, GE should OC well past what 770 can do at that res.

I should say best card aside from a titan for my last post.
