In Max Payne 3, I was able to make the settings require more than 2 GB of memory. It would not accept the settings and made me lower the settings until was under 2 GB. I think I just had to lower FXAA from 8 to 4 or something like that.

Really? I haven't heard of this happening before. With my laptop and 1.5GB GT555M, Sleeping Dogs would allow me to max out all my settings even if it would only run the game at 8fps lol. I didn't know some games would actually stop you from entering the settings you want..

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.

hi. did you get microstuttering with your 7970 xfire setup? how about 680 sli? im considering getting another 680 for Christmas.

Microstuttering mostly depends on how good the driver support is for a certain game. As far as I know it isn't as bad as it used to be. Go and get ur 2nd 680! I probably have to wait till next year before I can get my 2nd 680..frown.gif

Also I don't have an SLI/xFire setup so maybe someone with an actual multi-GPU setup can comment on your question. smile.gif

My system wouldn't post yesterday and the VGA light was the one lighting up. I had to reboot a couple of times but then it posted.

Today I turned on the PC and same problem. Rebooted once and bios showed a short message about the "VGA card not being recognized by UEFI" or something. "Using CSM instead" is what I remember.. And then it gave me the option of booting into windows normally. I then rebooted a couple more timesand the bios message did not show up again.

I looked up the 680 with dxdiag and everything seemed normal, but now I am worried because I don't know how what happened and if this will affect performance. (CSM instead of UEFI, don't know what that means)

The 680 is on the top slot. Now I feel like changing it to a different slot on the ASUS P8Z77-V. Don't know if that will change anything.

RMA'ing not an option, btw.

What exact card are you using? Have you ever overclocked the card? What BIOS are you using? Well basically try bringing everything back to stock. Also try taking out and cleaning the card and slot. Could be dirt getting in the way. Go ahead and try the bottom slot so you'll know if it's the card or the slot.

I'll try cleaning the card. Mobo is new but everything is in an old case.
