So you decided to uncork a lightning?
No still have not shot yet, I canceled my sale due to issues(not with him) but he said he could wait so in a day or 2 I will sale it and order the card with 1 day shipping. I am just stuck though: I know the 7970 will be faster, by how much and whether it will make a huge difference at what I do I do not know. I do not want to go crazy bench marking, just a little for fun I still will mostly just game(My main games being Starcraft II and BF3). Both cards will run those games perfectly fine, hell my 670 runs them both perfectly fine. It is just whether or not I want to take the plunge to AMD. I am by no means a fanboy, but all this talk of how the games are less smooth and stutter more with AMD effect my decision greatly. I mean, I run games at all low just to never drop below 120fps, I am kind of a smoothness freak
, these monitor do that to you. I am about 70% sure I will go with the lighting though. Both will be within a few fps of each other. If I choose to not upgrade to the 780 or wait for aftermarket 780's or AMD's next offerings, and go dual gpu, I am kind of afraid to go dual gpu with AMD because of all the problems I hear about it and how they are not smooth(coming back to how I am a smoothness freak) and how Nvidia is smoother with dual gpu setups and AMD is for raw fps.
