I am looking to see what comes the closest without having to spend $400 on the 7970.

The GTX 670 most likely fits the bill.

Performs either slightly below or above the 7970 depending on the game and it runs a little bit cheaper as well.

Although if you really want a 7970, Newegg has some for under 400 right now:

Makes it 40 bucks more than the 670. I'd personally go with the 670 though. Based on benchmarks and reviews I don't think there's a difference warranting 40 dollars.

I wanted a gtx670 to replace my two HD6870's. I picked up a evga 660ti oc for $260.00. Glad I waited for the 66ti. I have been with AMD card's form 3870,4870,5870 and 6870. I freaking love this 66ti it's quiet it's not long and runs nice. :) Reminds me of my old evga Ge Force 6800GT agp purchase from way back. If anyone is worried about the 192bit memory don't be.

660ti and 670 are very good at their price points. But if you got to choose, 660ti will drop 10% performance with $70 - $100 price drop compared to 670.

So 660ti it is.
