I can't even choose to run 8xMSAA, it requires 15gb vram and I only have 12gb. Rats, shoulda got 4 toxics lol.

Rather than start a new thread, i have a few related questions--

I'm currently running 2 6950s crossfired. @ 1080p 120hz.

If you were to go dual cards-- would people still recommend the 7970? Based on my research it seems like micro stuttering was quite a bit worse on the AMD solution. Also based on my research, it's apparently terrible on the 69xx series.

Also, one of the main reasons I lean towards the 670 series is that I stream sometimes using an Avermedia Live Gamer and with the AMD drivers I'm forced to lower my refresh rate when I "duplicate" the monitor. Based on my research people seem to be able to use NVidia's clone mode and do 120hz to the monitor and 60hz to the live gamer. Reports on whether or not SLI would work are mixed. Right now, the only way to get crossfire to work and stream is to either use DXTory (massive fps hit) or to use an HDMI splitter but i swear the picture doesn't look very good and it's obviously 60hz.

Also, I'm tired of cap profiles that may or may not work. So very tired.

Also-- do you think one card would be enough for 1080p @ 120hz removing streaming from the equation? I like to max things out.

That's a lot of complaints. Do you really need someone else's input if you're that dissatisfied? If you're unhappy in one architecture, don't throw more money into it. Try the grass on the other side?

The way MP3 shows VRAM is funny. It multiplies the memory requirements by the number of GPUs. That of course isn't how it really goes, but yeah, 8xMSAA does require a LOT. Since it also runs like crap and doesn't even get rid of the jaggies, it's a poor option in MP3.

I got mine for 387.99 + tax and got two free games with it. So, yea, there are some pretty good deals out there. Also upgraded to the GHZ bios, makes it a great deal overall!

Cool, looking forward to results. I am still waiting for the Egg to stock the 7970 Ghz Vapor X. Although I also have until tomorrow if I want to buy the MSI Twin Frozr 680 for $448 with a rebate.

Lol i got lucky today. It went in stock for about 4 hours and then sold out again. I'm glad i got it in time, as soon as i seen it i bought it right away. You have to be quick man those things don't stay long.
