...I'm using six of those and they really are quite and yet cool very efficiently...just their colour-combo is not everyone's cup of tea

I'd probably just game on the single 30" 1600p monitor, that sounds awesome...

When he gets up in the morning?! At the time I posted that it was past noon in the Netherlands. I was worried about him, lol he usually starts posting at 3AM EST.

Is one for your brother or something? Why did you buy both?
Go with the one that doesn't sound like a hair dryer (the one with multiple fans)

...after all those discussions that's exactly the right way to do it ! Go Swag thumb.gif .and may be throw in $15 to $20 for a kill-a-watt meter to measure differences, then do a new thread about the whole thing... biggrin.gif

...and you still have your brother (for now smile.gif , Titans for $1500 / pop on eBay)

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

I will have to compare power use of the 680 & 7970. I think the 7970 does use a bit more, but bet the 680 isn't far behind overclocked.
A lot of people automatically go nvidia for performance, this is the first time in quite a while that AMD cards came out ahead in performance & many still don't believe it.

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!

Lol, I was always an nvidia fanboy, the 7970 was my first AMD card!

If you get to 1400mhz core and 7800mhz ram that should be enough to max anything at 1440p. thumb.gif
With sli you have good chances of having enough horsepower for 3x1440p too, with a hefty cpu oc and some luck.
Nice card wink.gif
It adds cost and most included fans suck anyway...but you need some kind of fan there. Regular casual gamers won't be bothered with replacing case fans or doing cable management or fancy stuff like that. No fans would mean lots of burnt down gamer rigs lol
I'd get a no fan case, with a discounted price...could be an option/sku thumb.gif
He actually cheaped out a lot on fans...I would have gotten Gentle Typhoon ap 15's really tongue.gif Or Silent Wings...

Agreed, the lightning & unlocked bios is really the only 680 available new that can almost keep up without hardmodding. If benchies make a difference for you at least, they're all good for gaming.

Semi world record, I have the highest accepted validation, there are 2 chips above mine at hwbot, but they got the big red X in the validation so they don't count for the cpu-z hall of fame.
That was my very first AMD chip.

That is the right way to do it, as long as it isn't a reference cooler on that 7970. I don't mind fan noise, but even I don't like to turn that thing up to 100%...

Direct CU II is a favorite of mine, specially if you get an unlocked 7970, or the Windforce oc ones...those are cheap and really good ocers on air (and can do some damage on cold too)
post #12169 of 33576
Can't wait until I actually get a good chip so I can delid it. Also where's the cheapest place to buy ultra at? I know frozen has it but it's like $15.49 each lol
post #12170 of 33576
I've had 2 AMD cards and 35 NVidia cards. Still an AMD fanboy even though I've never used CrossFire or SLI smile.gif

(I always go for the underdog. *looks at intel CPU* ok almost always)
