I updated your GPU.

 

How is it btw? Happy with it?

 

I had a 1 hour experience with a 7970 OC in my rig and it was really nice actually.

Ahh I see.

 

I wonder would owning a 1080p Projector will give me better or worse gaming experience compared to my 1440p monitor.

I am happy for you bro. Enjoy your new beast. From the looks of it even 780 will not be as fast as the Titan. So you should be set for a while with this thing :)

I am thinking of getting a 1600p monitor to replace my 1440p

 

Besides the around 5% FPS hit, are there any cons or pros while gaming or surfing the web?

I have an epson 8500ub 1080p on 100" screen that I play on that is hooked up to my 5.1 new polk monitor speakers I just got. Lately I've been playing pc on my projector just because of my new speakers tongue.gif, but 1440p and playing on a monitor for pc gaming is still supreme, but for console gaming projectors are where it's at! biggrin.gif

here is blops2 360 on my projector.


and here is gran turismo 5 on it. this video is over 2 years old recorded with old iphone 4 so quality isn't as good

Awesome bro. rteally awesome gaming experience.

 

What is even more awesome is your speaker system.

 

I felt the bass even with my cheap speakers.

Oh, for one, IT WORKS. And, the drivers ARE GOOD. I don't see any horror stories on that! And, recent benchmarks shown the 7970 to be better for 2560x1440 than the 680 to begin with. Plus, It HAS 3 75cm FANs and looks cool while actually being cool!

and it can actually play Crysis 3 at better framerates to my liking than the 660ti ever could. I get the feeling it's like 35 minimum 40 avg with 7970 on Max settings no AA, on 660 ti it felt like 22-30. mat not seem much, but in Crysis 3 it made all the difference. Also, why so many Nvidia GPUs in the list? They're not always the best GPU ever in certain price ranges TBH. You get more of a GPU that's complete in both gaming/compute in the 7900 series than the 600 series, which were gimped in compute and may be bad for games that utilize compute features.

yea yea, omg, Drivers AHHHHHH. I don't see that here at all.

AMD has nice GPUs, shame i never bought their GPUs earlier.

Yeah I also do not understand the hate agains AMD sometimes. I hear that drivers evolved drastically.

 

I also had a 670 with Windforce 3 design just the same as yours and it was quite and cool. I loved it really.

 

Benchs do show that 7970 is better than 680 in 1440p gaming. Can you also confirm that you are getting more FPS?

 

Also is the gaming as smooth as Nvidia? better? worse?

post #2917 of 6172
it's because amd always seems to play catch up on driver releases and technology compared to nvidia it seems. just my opinion. I've owned couple what was then ati cards at some point within last 10 years. Haven't even tried them since amd took over.

well, compared to a 660 Ti, the OCed 7970 is easily 50-65% better in Crysis 3, so yea it was worth the upgrade. in some games it's almost 75% better or more.

The dang 192-bit bus wasn't cutting it.

Oh yeah. I wouldnt also recommend 660 or a 660ti to anyone for 1440p gaming. We do have a member here though with 660 SLI setup so it might be different.

 

From the kepler series 670 is the least to go with.

 

Most of our members in the club also have newer generation GPUs.

 

On the AMD side out of 71 members, 47 of them have a 7xxx series GPU

On the Nvidia side out of 178 members, 129 of them have a 6xx Kepler GPU.

 

And these numbers definitaly mean something.
