Another 7970 or wait for 7990

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys i would like some advice on whether to purchase another 7970 or a 7990.

My current computer specs are :
CPU - Intel Core i7 3930K Processor LGA2011 3.2GHz 12M Cache 6 Cores (@ 4.6ghz)
MOBO - Asus P9X79-DELUXE Socket 2011,X79,8DDR3,Wi-FI,2x GbLAN, 8ch,Raid
RAM - G Skill 16G(4X4G) DDR3 2133MHZ PC3-17000 CL9(L9Q-16GBZH)
GPU - Sapphire Ati 7970
Cooling - Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H100 High-performance CPU Cooler
Optical Drive - Sony AD7280SGB 22X SATA OEM DVD RW Black
Hd - OCZ Agility 3 120G SATA3 SSD
Case - CoolerMaster RC-942-KKN1 HAF X 942 Black No PSU
PSU - Silverstone ST1000 Gold 1000W Strider Power Supply

I currently have my first 7970 to 1125mhz at 1.174v and one would think that another 7970 could get the same easily. Eventually i plan to have a triple screen set up at true 120hz.

So should i get a 7970 and OC to 1125mhz or get a 7990 when it comes out and just leave it?

thanks guys

We know very little about the 7990 as of yet.

My advice: worry about it when/if you get 2 more monitors. You're good until then, and the future is bound to bring more solid info to help you in your choice biggrin.gif

Good luck!
