post #1041 of 1708
High end video cards always lose a ton of resale value when a next gen card hits. There is nothing cost effective about buying the top dog card.

If I'm not mistaken, most people could overclock and get 7970 performance according to these numbers. Sure, you can overclock the 7970, but no reason to change your whole setup..

I'll be getting one once real user reviews are out and if I can sell my GPU for a decent price.

Here you go buddy tongue.gif 1.5gb and 3gb are the same speed unless you're doing triple monitor, 3d vision, or eyefinity.

it's 2011 socket though....

Best guess a 3820. I want to see some 3930K testing. Wonder if a 2600K would bottleneck 3 way 7970's wink.gif

That is pretty impressive. 1125 at stock and great scaling.

Here is a quote I don't understand from that link, "They run cooler and quieter than previous generation 7970."

I did not know we already have second generation 7970's?
