Depends on the quality of the 7950. A 7950 like mine[1280/1800] will easily oust a 680 Lightning. And I've owned the Lightning.
Hey I've been lurking around and reading about how awesome the 7950/7970 are when overclocked. I have never overclocked a video card. I'm currently using 2 GTX 480's that I'm in the process of selling because of the ridiculous power draw/heat/and temperatures (my room is like a sauna). I was definitely planning to get a GTX 680 as I like to play games with Phys X, but from reading around and seeing that people can get close to 680 performance with a 7950 overclocked. I'm starting to think about picking up a 7970.
- Can someone give me some tips or point me in the right directions about overclocking video cards? I have no idea how to do it properly.
- Is it easy to overclock video cards?
- I want to overclock, but I wanna do it without using a crazy amount of power like my 480 or making my room a sauna and I don't want my fans spinning at crazy speeds at idle. Is it possible to maintain this while overclocking?
Sorry OP, not tryna to threadjack.
