Does anyone feel that this gen of cards is just so powerful there is no reason to jump on the next gen until we get some software to justify?

It's the first time I felt that 1 card really was enough. When I overclocked my card and maxed crysis I was very happy indeed. I bought a 2nd card mainly because I was in the middle of putting computer under water and felt I should just do it all in one go.

I really don't think we will need much more power at all until we see some new consoles.

Really? I have always upgraded to the fastest but cannot think of any reason to this year (yet). Crysis on 1 card is now done. What next.
I don't even have to overclock my cards to max games, so there is loads of headroom.
Unlike previous generations where u could have 3 gtx 285s and still not max crysis. There was always a need for more power.
There just does not seem to be the software out to push this gen of cards.

Nah I hate the multi screen. Bezels, just don't like it. Only screen upgrade I am considering is a DELL Ultrasharp 30". We need another Crysis type game to Kill pc cards again to make upgrading interesting again imo. redface.gif

First post here.

I'm currently running a Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 @ 1150/1550.

I have my Video memory running @ 1625MV. Is this safe?
