Holy crap at your power supply. Do you plug your 47inch flatscreen TV into it or jump start your car with it as well?

And people keep saying that AMD has proper drivers....

@OP Good luck with fixing the issue. I'm just nailing down some microstutter issues on my SLI 570s.

Funny you should mention drivers, I have a mate who dropped SLI 580s for 7970s because of a well known driver not responding bug that hasn't been fixed for months. Goes both ways champ thumb.gif

You are not being helpful.

What games? What FPS are you getting? What monitor setup (be specific)?

Turn on VSync. Download latest MSI AB beta and use FPS limiter to 60 FPS. Make sure in Nvidia Control Center all settings are "Let application decide".

I have used both Nvidia and AMD cards before, in my experience Nvidia is more buggy than AMD, not the other way around.

Hey mate, many people get screen tearing, especially if your fps drops below your refresh rate, if using 120hz, make sure you average 120 fps.
post #20 of 42
You also only have 3gb of mem on the 7970. For three screens.....that is quite low. Thats why im waiting on either the 7970 flew with 6 gb or the 7990.
