The gaming experience is much smoother. I don't get as high of benchmark scores but the tearing, flickering, and frame latency has vanished.

Some will say that it's inexperience on my part and I just needed to try messing with all sorts of settings to fix it. But I don't feel like I should have to mess with a $400 just to get it to work correctly. I don't mind installing a GPU, installing the drivers, and having no issues at all. That's the ideal scenario for me anyway.

When I bought my first 7970 (Sapphire Dual X OC Boost) I had to adjust the stock memory voltage in order for the stuttering to cease, the card was great, but the stock mem voltage was too high. I recently sold that card. My Diamond didnt have the issue, but when overclocking from 1900 to 1940 (1.7v - 1.737) if the voltage is even one step up to high I will get unbearable stutter and skipping. Go too low and it hangs. Find the middle and its smooth as silk. So maybe it was a memory issue. I know that if I have core voltage issues it just hangs and exits. I can always tell when its the memory that's off due to this. Also 79xx is sensitive to temp changes. My max overclock voltage needs to be adjusted up or down with as little as a 3°C change in ambient. Possibly why the sapphire card stuttered.

Blah im sleepy think I will hit the sack early tonight.

Best my 680s could ever do was 160fps with 99% use.

...and you monitor(s) actually display...60FPS ? 120 FPS ? (I know I am asking for it biggrin.gif )

One is 60hz other is 120hz...

It is just showing the performance gap for the same cost

Duuuuuude just..... just don't. haha. I think he might have just been trying to see the most GPU usage he could get, but he will have to tell you for himself his reasons why. Calmly, politely. Oh man I totally came on OCN to get away from all of this North Korea BS. Don't start!!! biggrin.gif

The answer is most definitely "because reasons."

At least, that's my answer when people ask me why I have two titans for one 60Hz monitor.

Yea my two cards are both boost and I'm at 1165/1600. Don't expect to milk them much more with WC, but they will look awesome and run cooler so that is all I care about. I'm a bit worried about getting a third because I'm scared that I'm going to get a horrible card and it is going to lag all of my cards down to 1100/1500 or something like that, but I do need the performance of a third card. It's just going to be nerve racking.

1225 is more than enough anyway...non boost 7970 reference card are more fun for wc.
