I'm so on the fence. Finally decided I need to upgrade from my GTX460SE and have the money for 2 of these bad boys, but that's a lot of money to drop just like that.

How about you get one for now, even single card is going to blow your socks off if you are coming from 460SE. See if you get enough performance. You can always get second one if need is still there. And half of the money can wait until later, or Kepler.biggrin.gif

Sitting at 1000mhz and 1500mhz at the moment under load its at 70c at 50% fan while the i7 under the h100 is sitting at 55 under load at 4.6ghz.
So far so good

Give portrait a try. I've never had other gamer's over who didn't want to switch their setups to portrait after seeing mine. You don't have that narrow slit into the world view with fish-eye effect of landscape with a bunch of useless information way out on the last half of each side monitor.

ok , so I thought I read almost the whole thread, but I didn't see anything about the xfx cards being bad??
I have an xfx card, that I highly doubt I'll even try to OC. What is the issue with the xfx cards? I got the xfx r7970 core.

They removed the double lifetime warranty and replaced it with a standard 2 yr warranty. The whole point of buying xfx and dealing with their shenanigans was "because" of their double lifetime warranty. Without that, there really is no point in going xfx.

Actually downgraded from 2 560ti 448's since I needed money but didn't want to sell my whole system and the 460se was just laying here anyways. But even so 1 7970 should still beat my sli 560ti's I had so I may go ahead and get 1 7970 for now biggrin.gif

This card worth getting rid of a 6970 and paying $550? I would have thought 28nm tech would have been more epic. Specially for someone who DOES NOT OC their cards?
