That's not the same as saying "new games will be better on this card". How does anyone know that? Unless you are developing all the new games yourself lol.What was the point of even posting? The 7970 has more memory & memory bandwidth. For games like Skyrim with HD packs and mods the VRAM gets hit hard. Not to mention more than a few of us do game higher than 1080p.
Throw into the mix that all 7970s OC to 1.1Gigs and there isn't much of a comparison. Get a model with a good cooler and you're doing 1.2+ easy.
Some people have bigger monitors ok fine, but as has been mentioned in other posts it depends quite a bit on the engine. Not every game is the same across the board. Maybe if one card was better in every game by the same amount at a specific resolution I'd buy your argument.
