HD7970-Opionions

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Looking for input from guys who bought their cards have played with them.

How does yours overclock? What you upgrade from? Happy with it?

Almost pulled trigger on 2 last night for my bday when I was drunk. Luckily I fell asleep at the computer lol

But for me I am coming from 2 6950s, which I really like tbh. But if I could overclock these cards to 1300 core and have 2 I think would be a pretty sweet upgrade.

OR wait for nvidia. Or spend the cash on beers.

And yes still a little drunk, excuse the typo.

Lo fella,

In all honesty, going from xfire 6950's to xfire 7950's is kinda pointless, your setup will take anything and everything that you throw at it. I know having the latest and greatest is nice but I really do feel like you'd be disappointed with the performance increase that you'd get.

Has anybody been able to crossfire two 7970's and see how they scale in yet? How well does one 7970 run Skyrim with three monitors (5040x1080)?
