Hi! I wanna get a gaming PC and I think in pairing the 6600k with a 7950. I have already a 1440p monitor. So while I wait for the next gen, what do you think of a 7950 for a year or so?

This is my set-up, though on 1080p144 rather than 1440p. I also have a 7970 instead.

You'll be more than fine for this year, as long as you aren't looking for max settings and you're ready to tweak some settings. AAA titles won't run super fast at that resolution though, i'm thinking

I have some several games from other years, and I'm happy with mid to high with no filters

Anyone utilizing these cards for Fallout 4 @ 1440p? What's your max settings you can run to peg the game @60+ fps? I've got it to consistently run at 40+... but pushing for smooth 60 is taking a LOT of backing off on settings.

I'm not sure if it's worth tweaking heavily to get it, or if I should hold my breath on some new drivers from AMD

I'm currently running:

i7 3770k @ 4.6GHz
7970 @ 1200/1600
16GB of RAM

I am, Ultra/High with a 7950

Turn OFF SSAO (its an Nvidia thing)
Turn Shadows to Medium
Shadow Distance to Low
Turn God Rays to Low
Turn off AA (dont need it your at 1440p)

You can also disable Vsync via the .ini - thats a huge FPS boost (but i have Vysnc ON)

Everything else Ultra+HIgh

I am getting 60FPS @ 1440p

Wait until we get better drivers...

Just picked up a used Gigabyte 7970 Windforce for $110! This is my first AMD card so I'm excited. Going to do a thermal paste change ASAP and then start the gaming.

Good call on the thermal paste change. Also make sure you have a decent airflow through your case (2 intake, 2 exhaust fans). Enjoy the temps.

Hey guys.

I have a HD 7950 which I am testing for a friend. It was having problem crashing in Witcher 3. I have the card in my system and I am testing it now. I am using Valley to test the card. First run the card hit ~ 92C on the Core and 112C/107C for VRM1/VRM2. This was only about 10 min on a cold room. I opened and cleaned the cooler and now the temps are 82C for Core and 102C/97C fpr VRM1/VMR2. A little better but still high. I then installed MSI AB and sow that this card is using 1.25v stock. I remeber back in the day that this is very high for HD 79XX. How do i lower it?

I can via MSI AB but my friend is a total noob and can't expct him to even know how to do it. I want a way to flash the BIOS. I know my HD 7970 Reference could do 1.1v Stock no problem.

1.25v core voltage? ohno-smiley.gif I have mine on 0.994v... and I have a moderate OC with a Twin Frozr III.
