I'm not saying you're necessarily wrong. I just don't buy the fact that the 7970 is the fastest guy out there period end of story.

Well stated, and exactly how I feel about the situation.

I'll have to go find that thread. Hard to do on the phone. There was a thread with links to like 5 review sites all with the same conclusion with the new drivers.

*edit* looks like there is conflicting scenarios out there. Would be good to see a head to head again with OCN members.

I like my MSI Lightning 7970s very much. The reason I prefer them is because they are dual slot coolers instead of triple slot coolers.
