That looks to be the best one imo, same with the 7970 versions (except the lightining) but I hear alot of people get coil whine you should look into that and see if it has been fixed.
Tho at the end of the month that will be the version I get of the 7970 thumb.gif

There's plenty of room at the top on air, and that's not even stressing the voltage.

And what do you get with the extra heat and extra voltage an extra 10fps max . Not worth it . Also I was going to get a forth card but they dont scale good anough for me to buy another . Instead I bought 2 GTX680s for my living room pc I have been enjoying them but when the GTX690 came out I just had to have it . it is almost just as fast as 2 680s maybe 3% slower and uses less wattage so I sold both 680s and now have a gtx690 . I am loving it it is by far 1 of the best cards I have ever seen looks wise . I paid more on ebay for it but atleast they where in stock . I say it is around 15%-25% faster then just 2 of my 7970s on most if not all games I play and less driver probs to and thats a big plus . I was going to sell my 3 7970s and buy 3 gtx680s for my gaming pc in my computer room but I would really be in the hole cause I would not get what a paid for them back also I use both for comparison 7970 vs GTX680 well GTX690 now ! I am not going to lie the gtx680s dont overclock good or atleast to me I was hoping the 690 would be better . Thought I had bad overclocking 680s but the 690 still want go that high . Maybe I just suck at overclocking . But really I see more of a boost overclocking my cpu I dont know why . Oh and btw I returned my ivy bridge to newegg that kinda helped me make up for what I did not have after selling my 2 680s to get the 690.




I did not want to do a multi post so if I sold my 3 7970s on ebay what would be the best price to ask ?
I sold my 2 GTX680s for $425 each believe it or not on ebay sold in 2 days .

Yeah lol
Me personally I would have spent the extra 65 or so and got new but it prob helped him out money wise .

BTW what would you sell HD 7970 for on ebay ?

Well, you might all remember me asking which 7950 to get a couple pages ago. I went ahead and ordered the 7950, and I'm actually having some major problems. I popped it in and as soon as I booted into Windows my screen went black and I was forced to reboot. Thinking it might just be some drivers conflicting I went ahead and formatted. Booted into Windows, no black screen this time, but as soon as I launched a game (TF2) played for maybe 2 minutes, was getting lower FPS than I got with my old 4870, and my screen went black again. Now I can't even get past game menus without the screen going black forcing me to reboot.

Are you fine PSU wise?

The only time I was getting horrible FPS in games was with an older set of drivers -don't remember which one exactly- some times the clocks were stuck on Video mode ( 500 Mhz ).

Yeah, running a 750w Corsair PSU. I'm trying an older set of drivers right now. If this doesn't work its RMA time.

Screen going black usually means your drivers are crashing, so that's not a terrible thing to try. Have you tried keeping CCC up on the screen, pressing Alt enter on your game immediately so it runs windows and confirming whether your 2d and 3d clocks are changing? Might be getting stuck in the middle there somewhere... :/

On that note, I wish AMD would allow you to choose to disable 2d/3d switching if you want. It's like disabling speedsteping and C1e/eist in BIOS for CPUs. It causes nothing but issues (such as the recover from monitor sleep issue)
