Weren't the 78x0 and 79x0 cards supposed to receive a price-cut? I don't see much change on Newegg o_O'
post #1683 of 4099
The 7870 was $330, then $280, now $240. They can't just give them away!

In Eyefinity 6000 x1080 I idle at about 36-37 C with aero and rain meter on stock voltage.

XFX DD; the one everyone keeps saying is bad.

Fine with me. Makes it easier to go crossfire.

The 7870 was supposed to come down to $230 and 7950 to $280. Don't see that on Newegg.

Sapphire 7950 $280 after rebate: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202006

HIS 7870 $220 after rebate: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161411

Newegg already bought these cards and now they have to sell them. They don't want to lose anymore money. That's why the price is after the rebate. Once a retailer runs out of stock and gets a new batch they will pay less for them and be able to sell them cheaper.

So much performance for cheap.

i usually buy Asus or HIS, but this time i wanna go somewhere else.

XFX: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150605

or

MSI: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127681

or

Gigabyte: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125418

both would work perfectly. but does anyone have any reasons for one or the other. Also what kind of performance gain would I get?

I own(ed) two MSI hawks. look at the reviews too. professional reviews get great oc (some) but user reviews are overall not positive. my two and a friends were all poor overclockers. also, the clock speeds jump between 450mhz and 1100mhz on any driver newer than 12.6 (the ones were performance in games increased frown.gif ) and gpu usage goes from 64% to 100% every other second. my friend still has to overclock to get the clock speed to stay constant. at factory settings it jumps around. those do seem to be affecting almost every brand of 7870 though. either way, I'd go for the one with the biggest pool of user reviews with the highest percent of good reviews in that pool. that would be the gigabyte model.

I thought we had come to the conclusion that those clock jumps and usage drops were just false readings. I still get better benchmark scores with 12.8 drivers than I did with 12.6 drivers. Even with the clock jumping. So it doesn't hurt performance it's just a bug with the readings.

Everything ( electronic ) that is imported comes with a %50 extra, and another %15 if it's in dolars... **** Krisitina
