Hey, i can join the club tomorrow when my new HD7970 arrives. Just £315! A bargain in my opinion! http://www.ebuyer.com/342736-gigabyte-hd-7970-oc-3gb-gddr5-dvi-hdmi-dual-mini-displayport-pci-e-gv-r797oc-3gd

It replaces my HD6870 which was the only excisting part from my old build. biggrin.gif

Don't you just love the feeling when you upgrade to a new powerful graphics card?! I do hehe

Looks like he has a 3570K @ 4.6Ghz. A 7970 will provide an upgrade with that CPU.

He has a 3570k. He'll be perfectly fine.

It's in my rig in my sig. i5 3570K @4.6GHz smile.gif

Basically a few months ago i upgraded my entire PC from my old socket 775 system that had a q6600 to my one in my sig. But i didn't have enough to get a new GPU aswell so i kept my HD6870. Although the 6870 is a good card it cannot allow me to max a few recent games at the smoothness i like. Namely Max Payne 3 and Witcher 2. And it also cannot max Metro 2033, which i want to play again before the new one comes out early next year. And i want to max that too.
I also am currently playing alot of Dark Souls, modded with the resolution and 60fps fix. And i cannot run the 60fps mod without lowering the resoltuion fix's internal res to 1920x1080. Without the 60fps mod i can run at 2560x1440. With the 7970 i know i can push that internal res even higher. Can't wait!

So there you have it smile.gif

It's been a while since i had a juicy GPU upgrade. Had my 6870 2 years now and it itself was a direct replacement for a faulty 6 month old 5850. And as you know they are pretty much the same performance wise so it was just an unplanned sidegrade rolleyes.gif

So yea, pretty excited about the 7970 smile.gif

Its really nice to see somebody happy, like you are with your new 7950. smile.gif

What worries me though is that you want to: Max out METRO 2033 rolleyes.gif

With 2x 7970 I am NOT able to max out Metro! I dont know if my first generation i7 bottlenecks my cards, but still i havent heard of somebody who managed to max out metro (constant 60fps at 1080p)

Enjoy your new card thumb.gif
