100s maybe but if i recall he gets cards free to overclock to promote each brand some of the other big time overclockers do also so they probly send him the best cards and he pushes them as far as he can.

Yeah, why don't I just play on HD4000 integrated graphics on a 4.7GHz overclocked 3570K for 4 months or more before buying a graphics card. You should go away. :|


If you read closely, you might understand. I hope you can see it.

CPU owned:
i5-750 & EVGA Classified 200 - 4.8GHz
i7-870 & EVGA Classified 200 - 5GHz
i7-2600k & Z77X-UD3H - 5GHz
i7-4790k & MSI Gaming 5 - 5GHz

Short answer, yes
Long answer, absolutely.

Well not really, you dont have to mess with new drivers every month with Nvidia. Cant beat AMD cards value right now though.

You can't even say "I think GTX 680 is better than 7970" without being bashed and tagged as a fanboy..That makes me feel like the GTX 680 is just a really bad choice I made..


Hypothetical scenario five months from now: I just bought AMD 7970 extreme 25...Nvidia releases the GTX 780 tha't's twice as fast. What regrets will you have then???
This hobby induces as paranoia of sorts about the latest and greatest.
