My config is in my signature.

I want a new GFX for around 28k. Buying it in 5-6 days. Open to online options or else buying it from Nehru Place in Delhi.

I was think about gtx 670. Also, there has been a price drop for hd7970 to $400, but then why the price for hd 7970 is the same in india?

Go for 670 don't buy it in online (overpriced). The discount of $50 on HD 78xx or 79xx ll not possible until the current stock are all sold out. Our retailers are so greedy

I disagree that the 660ti is better. The 660ti is not a good performer at high resolutions, or even at 1080p with 4xAA. It is chocked by its restricted 192bit mem bus, which I think was a bad decision on Nvidia's part. The 670 on the other hand is a great card and I would recommend it. Im no amd fanboy, but the the 7870 is falling in price and is @$240 now which IMO is a great deal since the 660ti is at $300 and considering that the 7870 overclocks like a boss.
I feel the 7970 is not good bang for buck since the 7950 can easily be overclocked to almost 7970 levels and is much cheaper.

^ true that HD7870/HD7950/GTX670 are VFM GPU in mainstream segment.

Get gtx 670..
Btw sapphire 7870 ghz oc edtn is bang for bucks for 18k.
Gtx 660 seems choked as vickybat said.. No use of 2gb memory on 192 bit bus. max memory utilisation is upto 1.5gb.
Nvidia could fall in midrange 600 series..

^^ Hey mate i didn't say that 660 is chocked. It was guruurg. Our avatars seem to be same. :)

Coming to the point, claims of 660-ti getting chocked due to smaller memory bus is rubbish. 7870 doesn't stand a chance against 660-ti in gaming.
660-ti is faster in all scenarios and competes with a 7950 too.

660 is the card against 7870 and competes well too if compute is out of the equation. No choking scenarios due to shorter bus.
Besides msaa is the only aa that's memory intensive and takes performance hit. Fxaa and txaa will be the choice of aa options in future.

@ op

For 28k in india, grab the 670.
