Forgive me if I shouldn't be talking about this in here, but I thought I would at least ask.

Lol, well it's good you asked me because I owned a Gigabyte 7970. It was awful. My 680 is whisper quiet in comparison. As for temps, I've never seen it past 78C which is great for the stock fan profile. Basically, you're making a good trade here given how bad the Gigabyte ones are. If you want the absolute highest FPS, then trading for a different pair of 7970's would be the way to go. But, crossfire has quite a lot of problems right now as I'm sure you've noticed. SLI is much less hassle to deal with. Not to mention, at the resolution you're playing at two 680's will destroy absolutely any game, now and for a while to come.

Hey, thanks for the quick responses and the help and advice. I really appreciate it. The Crossfire 7970s are pretty nice cards, but I have already ran into problems with the multi-card set up. That is one of the reasons I picked up the EVGAs. So, you are saying even with 2GBs of VRAM, I will be good for a few years playing at what I play at? Sorry, I just want to make sure.

Here are the exact two sets that I have right now (7970s are installed currently)

Yep, you will be fine for quite a while at that resolution. I would take the EVGA's in a heartbeat over my experience with that exact Gigabyte card. Loud and completely incapable of even a minor overclock.

I am not an expert but the 680 only has 256 bit interface and the 7970's have 384 bit. I like what you have.

Yeah, I saw that, too. I don't know exactly how that will effect performance either. Why is this so tough lol.

Just looking at the memory interface is a poor way to judge a card by. It's well known that at higher resolutions like 1440/1600p or multi monitor setups, the 7970 is going to be up to 10% faster in some cases. But with the application that the guy is going to be using them with, the 680's are a better pick because they have fewer software related issues.

They have absolutely 0 software issues? Thats the only way it can be less than the number of issues with 7970s...

Unless you have a buyer for the 7970's I'd keep them. Dual 7970's beat most card setup's. If the fan's are too noisy, get aftermarket coolers. On the plus side SLi IS more stable than Crossfire, but that's just drivers really. The 680's also use less power so thats a bonus. The 680's are only OpenGL 3.2 Compliant versus 4.2 for the 7970's, but then I don't think anything really uses OpenGL anymore. Not sure.

If you can sell the 7970's then go for it and get the 680's. Whatever you do the just research and make sure you getting the best card. Hey if you get a decent price for the 2 cards, go for a 690. Although with gaming at 1920 x 1080 you'd be fine with one 7970 or 680. With the trend in games to be developed cross platform these days you don't need an uber powerful PC as much as you did in the Crysis days. Sure the next generation of consoles is coming out soon put unless they packing SERIOUS graphics power, which I doubt, you should be fine for awhile.

Try removing the front cover and from the inside, push out on the metal grill a little. This stopped mine from doing that.
