I would expect little to no difference in FPS at your resolution
solely based on it being highly GPU limited vs a 3770K. Unless the chipset, 990FX, somehow lacks the bandwidth to drive all 3 7970's and maybe PCI-E 2.0 somehow lowers performance (which I doubt). I have read some speculation that the AM3+ socket itself, along with the 990FX chipset, are limiting the performance of the new Piledriver CPU's although I don't know if these claims have any merit.
Very interested, and appreciative, of your effort and results!
