The model you are referring to does it have dual link DVI? if it does not then don't get it if you plan to run 120hz at some point, I have had in the 7970 range, the gigabyte windforce 7970 oc, the Sapphire Vapor X, the MSI Lightning r7970 and an ASUS reference 7970 with Arctic cooler flashed to GHZ edition.

The card that yielded the best results was the ASUS reference though it does cost to add that arctic cooler (which is the best cooler other than water) But it is very very big and takes 3 slots...

The worst card for me was the gigabyte because it was voltage locked... I flashed it with about 10 different bios's and it would not change.

The Sapphire vapor x is a good card but fans are loud above 60%. that is my only gripe though.

I have PM'd the AMD Rep Thracks to ask him if a Powercolor vortex 2 is a good way to go if he says yes I will ordering one today as I have RMA'd my gigabyte card.

A single HD7950 can be overclocked to be more powerful than an overclocked reference GTX 680. It will be on par with a MSI GTX 680 Lightning at 1080p and will edge it out at 2560+ resolutions.
So CF HD7950s overclocked they will be over 100% faster compared to a GTX 680.
I prefer the affordable cheaper and better GPU compared to a better GPU at 3DVision support.
I will do this as well when next generation of cards come and AMD take the edge again, I will buy an AMD GPU if it is more powerful sacrificing my monitors 3DVision support.
Don't get me wrong 3DVision is awesome but still doesn't worth buying an overpriced card just for the sake of it.

I am always a big fan of 1 better single card then 2 lesser cards in sli/xfire.

Personally I would go with the 680 or a 7970. Less heat, less power consumption, less problems.

Both of those option are still pretty poor options compared to CF 7950 they are the best bang for the buck for current generation GPUs.
When both are maximum overclocked a single 7950 can be only 3-10% slower than a single 7970. Only Matrix 7970 or watercooled 7970s can increase the gap further because they can easily do 1300 MHz+ which most 7950s will fail to do.
7950 will beat GTX 680 even when both are overclocked in games that stress the Bandwidth/ ROPs hard enough.

Yep. I would still go with a 7970/ 680. I am not poor and don't need to squeeze out every penny per dollar.

Like I said. Out of the choice OP gives, 7950 or 680. I chose the 680.

I didn't say you are poor though. I said the choice is poor tongue.gif .

I respect your opinion but ...
This doesn't have anything to do with ones being poor or rich. it is simply a choice between an overpriced under-performing card and a card performs much better compared to its price.
And this is coming from a long time Nvidia user, HD7950 is a better purchase than either a GTX 670 and GTX 680.
Crossfire HD7950 will spank both GTX 680 and HD7970 for the same price or only $100 more at most.
Once all those are overclocked 7950 crossfire will beat them by over 100%.

So the 7970's don't overclock that high? I mean if the 7950 can pass up a GTX 680 once OC'ed, shouldn't the 7970 go even further?

the HD 7970 cards also overclock well. but in terms of price perf a HD 7950 is unbeatable for 300 bucks. if you want to spend more you could . thats upto you.
