You were saying.

As a side note. Couple of things on the Sapphire Dual X I have. It has some nasty coil whine when stress testing overclocks depending on the application (atitool + 5000 fps is the worst). Second I'm not seeing Afterburner pick up any vdroop. Is anyone else seeing no vdroop with any cards as I though these were supposed to have that?

The droop is there, afterburner only reports setpoint. GPU-z or HWinfo will show you close to actual.

Yup. That's my work pc with the 3930k 4.8ghz with 1.375v stable with a H80 that came with it. My office is 70-72f all the time tho all year. My 2500k that I just let go of was 15hr prime stable at 5ghz 1.392v. and my new 2700k can do 5ghz HT on 8hrs prime stable with 1.425v and max boot at 56x 1.575v and posted at 57x, but rebooted at windows logo screen. 1.600v would get in at 5.7ghz for sure thumb.gif

Question for the Gurus out there:

I was seconds away from picking up the Sapphire Duel X 7970 for $620 AU when I noticed the 7950 for $499. that is a $220 difference. The performance seems fairly close.

How easy is to to OC the 7950 to get it to around the 7970 levels? If I can save $200 for roughly the same perforance I'll be very happy.

Im using a 1080p monitor and will be mainly playing BF3, The Witcher 2, Skyrim and Aliens: colonial Marines when it comes out.

My gut tells me the 7950 is all I really need.

What say you all?

7950. 1080P isn't that hard to drive. $220 is completely worth going the slight step down in performance (changed by overclocking biggrin.gif )

You can OC a 7950 pretty easily to 7970 levels but on the flipside you can OC a 7970 past that. Regardless your 7950 will max both the witcher 2 and Skyrim completely and BF3 almost. You can run 4xmsaa if you want but you'll get dips down to 45 fps. You could OC the 7970 to the point where you can get it pretty much locked at 60fps.

At 1080p that will really be the only difference between the two cards. With a 200 dollar gulf I think I'd go for the 7950. You can always add a second later and have major overkill on all games.

Don't go for the 7970. When overclocked the difference is so marginal it is ridiculous. I heavily suggest getting a 7950 that has a good third party solution and OCing it heavily as these cards like to OC high. You should have no problem getting 1200 on the core and 1650 on the memory. Easily beating out a stock 7970 and the price difference in AU is ridiculous. Save the money and you won't regret it. Buy some games to use that card with with the money saved.

I did it and I am damned glad I made that decision. biggrin.gif

With my OC I can play all the games you mentions on the max setting (Witcher 2 without ubersampling of course) and I have a 1080p monitor as well. thumb.gif

Order placed for 7950. Hope I can manage a good OC. You watch now the price drop will come through. Damn I hate being impatient.

I could choose between custom HD 7950 and reference HD 7970, there was some difference in money, about 70 euros i think.
I choosed custom HD 7950, because my ears are preety sensitive, and i heard and saw on some testing that reference HD 7970 is preety noisy.
