Just look at it like this, right now two 7950s crossfired cost less than a gtx680 4gb but perform with a gtx690........... Burn me once, shame on me.
Lower end cards having better price/perf is nothing new. Flagships always have a premium attached, if you don't know that then you had it coming
I think you guys are placing to much value in the marginal lead the 7970 has in fps. What's 3 extra frames a second compared to the power you save or the better driver stability? I've owned 7970s and 680s this gen and couldn't care less about the 1 or 2 fps lead either way. From a multi-gpu perspective, my experience with 680s has been so much less annoying than 7970s in CF. As far as overclocks go, I have a friend who couldn't get his Sapphire 7970 OC past 1150MHz no matter what voltage he pushed through it. You're just as likely to get a garbage overclocker on either side of the fence.
Could be that you have a better experience with the 7970s, but these things are just something to consider is all. The grass isn't always greener, and swapping would be a side grade at best.Edited by Tslm - 10/26/12 at 3:18am
