Those who suggested that I shouldÂ´ve bought a 590 instead a quick explanation
I have been running GTX 295 Quad SLI since 2009.
Then I sold them for 500€ .
I also sold my Gigabyte UD5 rev.2 for 200€
Right now I have assembled the whole "temporary rig"
Little Devil V8 white
2xRX480 with Gentle Typhoons
some Lighting , chrome fittings, chrome Resevoir
GTX 580 Lightning
I had to make a choice.
Make a full gpu performance upgrade or only spend a little for a card with good resell value in order to sell it again when Kepler arrives.
And I though it was smarter to only spend a money for a minor temporary update which will still provide performance.
I chose the 580 because of the better resell value compared to the 6950 CF.
Also because the performance is so colse I thought a single card would just be better.
My whole is system is extremely overclocked.
i7950 at 4.8 GHZ
12 GB Kingston Hyper X at 2200MHZ 8-8-8-20-1
And I hope to get the Lightning to 1GHZ
I had to buy an aircooled card to save money on waterblocks:
And now to my screen because some people have claimed it has slow refresh rates.
It is the Sony Bravia Full HD 42" LCD which has normal refresh reates of 60hz
but my gtx 295 still struggled more when running Crysis on it than on my 24 inch.
Bu Crysis was also the only game where that was the case.
