Here's for those so worried about the min fps I had last time. Before it was 18.4 min. Ran again and this time it didn't dip like that. Min fps is 55.3. Ran at 1150/1600

Hey guys, looking like I'm going to get credited this week for my 7970, so I'm going to wait a week and see if there is any news on Kepler/7970 Lightning release dates, and if not (or if it's bloody ages), I will be dropping on one of these cards.

Now, my problem is, I lean very heavily towards MSI and much much prefer them. I also have to have a black PCB to fit into my blue/black theme as best as possible. However the MSI 7970 has a red PCB. Ew. My two options from PCCG (store credit have to buy from them) as far as a 7970 goes are Sapphire ref or HIS ref. The Sapphire ref is $639, the HIS ref is $599, but I'd much rather go with the Sapphire as I've had a bad experience with HIS cards.

PCCG also stock an MSI 7950OC, which fits my colour scheme the best out of all three cards (very little red on it), but is a 7950. I game at 1080p and want to max out BF3 as much as possible, and from what I have read the cards differ very little, especially when overclocked high (which I intend to do regardless of what I get). The other great thing about the 7950 is it'd leave me less out of pocket for a few other upgrades I've been considering (DCII was $800) because it is $569.

Yes, us Aussies get horribly jacked up prices even though our dollar is stronger. No, it doesn't make sense.

Anyway, what do you guys reckon I should go for? BF3 is easily the most demanding game I play, and I'd love to be able to do Ultra/HBAO/4xMSAA but I can settle if the 7950 will manage at least 2xAA

Finally (long post!), on an unrelated note, I've never used the CCC/nVidia graphics options, and don't really understand them. Since I'm a massive fan of eyecandy (obviously it has to be a fun game, but I like being able to put everything to max and leave it rather than fiddlefaddling with settings), how much of a difference does it make to the purdyness and how much of an impact is it likely to have on frames?

It depends on what your definition of "is" is. MSI 7970s have a black dark brown PCB (as I think others do as well). I think pics of red PCBs are from pre-release. I would go with the MSI.

I don't use CCC at all because I was afraid when I started OC'ing that it would screw with my stuff...and I never went back. I get a pretty stable 60+ (a few dips into the 50s) on BF3 with full ultra, but AA off...other than that, I just set the stuff in CCC the way I wanted it, and never reopened it.

I had only looked at the picture on PCCG - this is what I found on their website and it confuses me greatly: MSI 7970

I'll be really annoyed if I order a card and it has a red PCB!

I mean the AA settings etc, I don't know because I've never really looked except in passing. Is that the same thing you were talking about? What res do you play at to give you that FPS? I am only at 1920x1080, and my only upgrade plan is to go to a U2410 (1920x1200) in June.

EDIT: Urgh I just realised the MSI 7970 is out of stock with no ETA. :/

Well, wait for confirmation from others in this thread, if you like. I've been wrong before (it happens all the time. my mom calls to remind me whenever she can). But I've never heard of a red PCB released and I know that was the issue at launch (the pics were from pre-release AMD boards).

As for BF3...empirical data is always the best. Let me test it right now.

[edit] - well, on seine crossing with like 30 people, in the middle of combat, I'm getting about 80+ fps. I know with the same settings, I would usually float above 60 (typically sub 70) on larger caspian, or wake island (my personal favorite).

As for the settings, I'm on full ultra with 2xMSAA, at 1080p. I have heard that putting AA to post, instead (I believe in CCC), will yield better fps, so if you were having issues once you upgraded that monitor, that would be an option to keep fps locked.

[edit edit] - Yeah. Lower 60s upper 50s with everything maxed in outdoor whatnot. One thing though, is that I'm getting some minor screen tearing with this RC11 driver, which I wasn't when I was on 12.2/12.3. It's really not an issue because I don't play a lot of BF3 anymore, but I have a feeling if I were to look deeper, I'd probably upgrade to a different driver.

Reference pcb is always black/dark brown. Any colors is just marketing. I haven't seen a red reference pcb since the 4890s.

In bf3 turn off msaa and set post aa to high.
