Well this thing about Nvidia vs AMD all depends on the user for me AMD looks better than Nvidia the colors are better (image detail) if you know what i mean.

I had luck with my Asus 7870V2 it does 1200 core (24/7) default voltage with 1.3v (with vdrop is 1.24v) 1270 core for benching. The mem goes up to 1550 but i cant see any improvement over 1350/1400 though the best thing is that I have ZERO capacitor whinning biggrin.gif

I own both AMD/ATI and NVIDIA products. 7970ies are nice cards, but they use almost 100 Watts MORE than comparable NVidia products (in this day and age?)...or put differently, EVEN the new TITAN uses slightly less power than the 7970.

The driver problems on multi-GPUs are far worse with the AMD/ATI, incl. micro-stutter- I ran AMD /ATI in my main machine until last October.

AMD/ATI is loosing in the marketplace, unlike NVidia which is gaining - what are the reasons ? I don't want to see AMD/ATI disappear because it is bad for choice and pricing

Update on my RA:
Rejected due to physical damage - Severe track damage around one of the cpu cooler mounting holes. The serial number label has been tampered with, looks like its been removed and taped back on. Photos on the OLQ.

I called thme to contest it, and they will llook into it.
Last time I'm buying from SCAN UK, and buying an asus motherboard.

That's absolutely ridiculous to reject it due to the sticker (due to the antec being mounted) and due tot he CPU MOUNTING holes supposedly showing traces.

Their take on severely damaged is quite funny.
If it comes back not replaced- I'll go to tradings standards and finally flash the bios chip.

So very dissapointed.

if your into overclocking and such, you shouldnt look at what it uses,
top end products arent made that way..
you cant run 5.0ghz on ivy, and expect it runs economical biggrin.gif
at least im not looking at all at those things..lol

besides that, my 7970 isnt running 100% load 24/7,
the few hours a day it has to work while gaming,
wont make that much difference at the end of the year when the electric bill comes in,
i expect the drivers will get better for CF , at least they work on better drivers all of the time..

For those of you with experience in three monitor gaming, how good is it? Currently I use my 30inch 2560x1600 which is great, but I am wondering if the cost in GPUs to game at 5760x1200 is worth it. Do many games work well with three monitors? Just looking for any opinions.

I still insist on the 7970, Swag's running three 1440p screens. That's AMD's realm really, there's no contest performance wise.
The memory bandwidth is limited and the rop's limit the kepler's even more for that kind of screen real estate.
Costs less, performs better, no prob with 2x gpu's in crossfire either, you can overclock further and it WILL make a difference. tongue.gif

I had my gpu as far as 1400mhz core and 7800mhz ram effective yet still it got beaten badly at 3dm11 and heaven. For the same kind of money I could have gotten a reference 7970 (got my 670 ftw for 325 + 35 shipping) and it would have been much better.
Plenty of Nvidia fanbois here xD jk jk

EDIT: Valgaur, you might wanna check the top vantage scores at the bot...all 7970's and a few 580's! yep, real high end designs, built for overclockers. thumb.gif

I was actually a fanboy for ATI because I've never really owned a Nvidia card myself. tongue.gif If I go for the 680, this will be my first Nvidia card. tongue.gif

Haha! I remember when Eyefinity first became slightly big, I jumped on the wagon and bought everything. Then I learned you needed DP to DVI Active Adapters and at that time, they were around $140 a piece!

They work pretty well with three monitors, they also look beautiful. The question is, can your system sustain all that power needs!

Over lock potential of 7000 series is huge I can get my msi 7950 to 1300 and 1750 on air and I easily beat 680s and am in line with a lot of oced 7970s. Imo get the 7970. thumb.gif
I also got a golden 7950 tho cause I only need 1.25 volts for that and temps dont exceed 76 degrees at those clocks in mark11 that is tongue.gif
