Nice recommendation Goop. I would say you should probably go for the S27A(750)D instead of the 950d. It's the same monitor, except it has a slightly more conventional stand and only DisplayPort for 120hz (which is fine because your 7970 has mini-dp). It is also 200-300 dollars cheaper for the same panel and has had slightly less problems than the 950. TigerDirect had them for 399 on some redonculous magic-deal last week so i bought one. It took a while to get the settings right but it is really nice. Here's a great review: http://www.pcmonitors.org/monitor-reviews/samsung-s27a750d

Thanks guys! This is helpful, and i'm definitely going to look into the one with the normal stand. I appreciate it. Got my 2nd 7970 in and I have the itch to go 120hz. I'm a hardcore FPS gamer and I'm very picky when it comes to response time and such, and I definitely remember how my CRT felt so I wanna see if this is as close as I can get.

Thanks ken, I guess I could so a fresh install of windows again, lol. Should I update my Windows fully before I install CCC? Meaning after I install mobo drivers, I update windows first? And then install CCC?

Also, since the first driver install didn't detect my gpu, I'm now thinking, I did have a SLI 570 in those two pci slots so maybe that screwed up my mobo a bit? I should try to reset the Cmos battery too?

Do you guys think i5 750 OC'ed to 4ghz will bottleneck single 7970? I have antec 620watts PSU. My main rig's PSU may have problem, so I am going to use my HTPC to test my 7970.

Yes, you have to install every updates before installing CCC. That includes all net frame updates. Make sure to click window updates until you see "there are no updates available".

I have i920 at 4.4 and the first few cores hit 95-99 on BF3 not sure if that helps ..... I also have 1200 (lots of power)

I didn't think I would notice the 120hz, but I do in a big way. I actually bought the monitor just because of the good reviews on the color clarity and sharpness, but was amazed to see what fps gaming felt like on 120hz. It felt like adding a ton of frames, kinda like the jump from 30-60fps!

No way. That cpu is PLENTY powerful for the 7970. You may see a slight bottleneck if you xfire them on a really cpu intensive game likfe multi-player BF3, but outside of that you're golden.

Corsair AX850

I don't think my psu should be a problem since SLI 570s pull more power and that ran perfectly.

I mean, if it's the updates, I don't see why there aren't more people with problems on their BF3 after a fresh install. Unless they are simply smarter than me and update windows first, or they don't play BF3, because my 3dmark and Heaven works ok.

I have never played games with i5 processor, so I was just curious. My main has i7 920 4ghz.

I have no plan to crossfire 7970! thanks
