In battlefield with three 7970's I get 100% usage across all three cards. But with 3Dmarks I'm only getting GPU1 100%, GPU2 50%, GPU3 50%. What is going on ?

Hey guys, I'm looking to upgrade my 5770 to a 7970 and I have a few questions:

1. I my current rig going to be capable of running the 7970 and will I be bottle necked at all?
2. How much of a performance boost would I be getting with this upgrade (generally speaking of course)
3. Which 7970 should I get?

Come on dude!

LOL. This rad setup dropped my gpu temps 10c max gpu clocks in Heaven, and the pump wasn't even at 60% duty cycle. CPU doesn't get hit that card so pump hardly ramps up. Hmm, I should redo my PWM curves now lol. Current curve hits 95% DC at 60c on cpu (old loop setup) but the cpu maxes at 48c (new loop setup) doh.

You might get slightly lower fps than core i5 2500k. But you won't be bottlenecked in a major way. As for the graphics consider one of these Gigabyte HD 7970 Windforce or Sapphire HD 7970 OC Dual X. gigabyte has 3 yr warranty while sapphire has 2 yr warranty . pick the one you like.

This crossfire is driving me crazy.

Is BF3 just a piece of crap? or is it the cards. i would like to think the cards are fine since skyrim and mass efect 3 played just fine maxed out on 2560xRes. so i am guess BF3 is a piece of !@^#$%!@#%^$...

Have done every possible settings change i could find - unless there are some others to be done in CCC itself???

but my patience is running thin, been rattling my brain for 1 week now and still 40 - 50 FPS regardless vsync on or off on ultra settings, 2560xRes and still it either crashes or it works fine at random times - still think the FPS are low on the 1 monitor only.....

i would get 2 / 10 runs fine and can play camp up to the roof where sniper is on first level (normally i quit by then due to seeing the 40 - 50 FPS)....

Can someone screenshot for me their settings in CCC so i can compare to my 2x7970 top's crossfire and see what the difference is....

I even took off page file and disablled auto set - since i got 4x4 trident ram so i dont think amount is the problem.....

any assistance would be great.

Can always think you upgrade your rig later on if your holding it back slightly, even if the card does not do 100% due to cpu or such is holding things back, just add some MSAA or quality and you be fine.
resolution at 1920x1080 a 7950 is as good and make no difference in practice with gaming. 2560 is another story.

wrong quote!

Drivers:
12.7 beta with 12.7 Cap 1 - think i put it in my sig as well.

Previous tried 11.12 with CAP 1 - this was giving random BSOD.

Tried the 12.4 with CAP 1 - this gave random BSOD as well.
