Are you already aware that AMD already have a new update about there GPU latest Driver...

the latest GPU driver of AMD is the CATALYST 12.11 BETA.... or try to read this for you to think about my suggestion http://www.overclock.net/t/1196856/official-amd-radeon-hd-7950-7970-owners-thread ....

I know many other Nvidia GTX 680(sli) owner will not believe that they can be beaten by the HD 7950(crossfire) by there latest update of there Driver and Software... biggrin.gif

and also you can save more money due to price range difference of GTX 680 compare to HD 7950.....

but if you want to push it then take HD 7970 for SLI........... thumb.gif

Honestly I'm an nvidia guy. I prefer EVGA because of their warranty and CS team. I know if something goes wrong I can get it fixed or replaced 210%. I'll look into the 7950s beating out the 680s, and reason being for the 670s is because the 7970/680s are out of my price range. I need/want 2 cards because I won't be spending anymore money on my rig for a LONG time.

I appreciate your post, insightful. However if I did go 7950s it would be the TFIII designs which Newegg only has 1 of. Tomorrow morning is my dead line, so everyone feel free to chime in!

EVGA's support team is extremely impressive. Fast response. They're having issues w/ the EVGA FTW K2's coming w/ the wrong backplates but they sent me one w/ 2 day shipping and it arrived without issue.

I am selling my EVGA X79 FTW + 3820 because I am downgrading - I will part if you are interest in saving some money. I'm only looking to get $165 shipped for my EVGA FTW. I can provide pictures of the socket (No bent pins) and a video of it running if you'd like.

Well my budget allows for me to get "better" cards. Not saying that AMD is bad, because I loved my 6970's. I really appreciate the info, I really do. But I think I'm gonna stick with my 670's. smile.gif
