If you are going to watercool just get any reference HD 7970 card. pick the brand you like. here are a couple of options. HIS HD 7970 for USD 420 and Gigabyte HD 7970 (1 Ghz) for USD 420 after rebate.

This, if you're watercooling go with a reference card and get a full cover block thumb.gif

Hi Guys

I have currently one HD7950 with max OC @ 1130mhz core.
I am planning on buying Max Payne 3 soon.
Would you recommend me to buy another HD7950 to run in crossfire?
I think I need one to play MP3 maxed out @ 1080p (single screen)

Price has ofcourse dropped quite alot for the HD7950, so it would be quite a good deal.
But on the other hand... Reading all the problems people are having with crossfire makes me doubt it...

Advice appreciated ! thumb.gif

For 1080p you don't need HD 7950 CF. Here is a 1.2 Ghz HD 7950 running at 60 fps avg at 1080p with all settings maxed out and MSAA 4x in Max Payne 3

http://www.hardocp.com/article/2012/08/23/galaxy_gtx_660_ti_gc_oc_vs_670_hd_7950/3

Also Max Payne 3 MSAA implementation is botched. The image quality improvements with MSAA are very less compared to FXAA and performance hit is severe.

http://www.hardocp.com/article/2012/06/12/max_payne_3_performance_iq_review/7

For 1080p just stick to a single HD 7950.

Thanks for the feedback +rep

Do you know why they mention in the review 4xMSAA + FXAA ? Seems strange to me, isn't it the one or the other? Both msaa + fxaa seems a little unlogical to me.

Sapphire Trixx should let you clock past 1100.
