I just scored TWO lightnings via Open Box on Newegg today, rofl. biggrin.gif

I've got my Asus DCII TOP 7970 coming back tomorrow as well, so I'll have a pretty sick Tri-Fire setup, and a pretty sick Quad-SLI 680 setup smile.gif

I'll be doing some tests with 3 680s vs 3 7970s @ max OC on my 3930k rig @ 4.9ghz when I get them all setup.

I'll also probably be watercooling the 7970s.

Thread Starter 

The idea is not having other processes eat up what resources BF3 uses. 

If I only have two modules enabled, system resources will slow down BF3 more than likely. 

I've seen BF3 use up to 50% CPU usage while the entire system (including BF3) uses up to 80% at the same time.

It's honestly nothing to be jealous of. I only buy this stuff because its my only hobby. You really only need 1 or 2 of these high end cards to play any game out there today. The difference between 1 and 2 cards for me is basically AA. I'll probably barely use the cards and end up selling either my 680s or 7970s sooner or later. I had 3 7970s before that I sold because of the lackluster drivers back then, but now with the lightning out and the new 12.7 drivers, I've got some faith in AMD. Plus, I scored all 3 of these via open box @ around $400. Meanwhile I paid top dollar for my 680s, and they only have 2GB of Vram, which is probably why I'll be getting rid of them.

Well it's also my hobby, but the US Gov. doesnt pay me enough to support it! lmao But make sure you post those awesome benchmarks!

Grab it!

Seriously debating about grabbing this, I don't like how loud my 7970 ref is o.o

So I would be CFing 2x7950 instead of 7970x7950
