And lags behind a bit when you add in anti-aliasing. And if you're going with multi-monitors, the 7970 is your card.. Mainly because it's available in a 3gb version whereas the 680 is just 2gb. So...falls short on memory with high detail settings and high anti-aliasing.
Personally, I'm just going to game at 2560x1440 so I'll be getting 2x 680's. But I know that means I can't go any higher on monitor count or resolution without a drop in framerate.
Here's the best review for one yet:

Site is getting bombarded with views atm though.

Like you im only going to game at 1440p so might go with the gtx680 depends on the price over here in europe vs 7970

Edit: Gratz on the record only 15 more hz:)

Quick video showing vsync and 105 fps in case there are any doubters. Since this is the highest I think anyone has gotten one of these panels yet. tongue.gif

It looks like your video card can go a little higher than mine. Mine tops out around 395 MHz, while yours tops out around 408 MHz. The problem is we need 465-485 MHz to hit 120 Hz.

Yeah...I'm completely out of ideas on how to go over 105hz though man. An extra 15hz would be so amazing for video smoothness...and even 3D.

the superior memory buffer (3GB vs 2GB) and bandwidth (384bit vs 256bit) will likely have the 7970s trumping the 680s for such a demanding setup

I'm not sure even that's enough. Lol. I'd personally wait a couple weeks, get the 7990, and that way you still have the option of adding another 7990 and doing quad-gpu crossfire if you needed to. Which...you probably will. tongue.gif

We're already running a 120hz capable board. Issue is our vid cards ramdac is locked at around 400mhz which is around 98hz. With a little tweaking I got mine to 105hz because the monitors are capable of it. Our video cards are the limiting factor here, sadly.

FYI guys it was just reported the new gtx 680 can handle a 4k display at 60hz. Which means there may be a chance for 120hz on these monitors with it. If the stores have any stock when I wake up I'll buy one. If one of you grabs one first, please test it and let me know! Thx.

I am aware of all of the above, thing is I don't even have the ability to get a B class monitor.

Need the new PCB to even get above 60HZ.
