Your limited to 2gb of vram , which is plenty dont worry . You got 3x6970 cores for raw power , 2gb vram is plenty unless your playing in eyefinity with maxed out details u might struggle as you might reach your 2gb limit in some heavy games .
dont get the FX cpu , grab a 2600k and have some fun with those cards already .. i cant believe you have 3x6970's and what cpu ur using to run them @ 40% each LOL thats pretty funny .. Im dieng for tri fire 6970's but i guess its only the noobs with too much $$ that get all these things , and end up buying a phenom II to bottleneck all 3 cards ... makes baby jesus cry , it really does .
Lol at the bolded statement. Lemme explain.
I built pcs back in 1998-2002, and in that time I only built AMD.Why? Because if you built and intel you were either dell or retarded.
After 2002 I moved to an area that only had 56k internet, so I slowly watched my PC age and die over the years, while I was disconected from all internet.
Then comes 2010, and Im ready to build a new system now that I have internet.I dont even consider intel, because being a pc builder from the old days, who would? So I build my machine and start frequenting here and guess what I find out? AMD has been lagging for years. Then I learn of bulldozer and think" Surely AMD isnt gonna f#$% this up" and yet they did.
I took my processor from my 2010 pc and stuck it in my 2011 pc waiting for BD, and built a system around that. The result is what you see. A system that needs a much more powerful processor(and I could use intels extra instruction sets in pcsx2)
