7950/7970

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Can my sig rig handle one of those GPUs...... heres an example with my current rig with just one 6870 (i dunno if this will shed sum light) on BF3 on 1980x1080 on mostly mid settings with AA off my cpu usage runs at about anywhere from 69-89 avg hitting sum 90s does that mean my oced Q9550 cannot handle a 7950/7970???...

And i believe that the pcie 3.0 gpu is compatible with 2.0/2.1 or whatevr right?

GPUs are not that taxing on CPUs in the majority of games, I did notice an improvenent of about 15 fps in BF3 when moving from a Q6600 @ 2.6GHz to a 2500K @ 4.5GHz, but your CPU is faster than my old Q6600 so i would guess it would only be at most 10fps slower. I would also reccomend a GTX 670 over a 7970 if you haven't purchased it already as they're both faster and cheaper.

Ya I was looking at the 670 but my rig is setup to have eyefinity.......although I always wanted to try green for once....... My question is I wonder if my cpu and oc will not bottleneck...... Like I said it's running around 75-95% on bf3

Btw I also want a better chance at running eyefinity
