Much more logic would have been in buying a Core i7 3770 and two HD7970 cards...

The most hilarious part was you talking about "saving money".. Hahaha. Saving money by buying FX8350 instead of Core i7 3770, but then buying the most expensive graphics cards there are on the market..biggrin.gif That's a good joke!

7970, the most expensive graphics cards there are on the market.

Actually I had 2 laying here I got free from testing and I only purchased 1 of them with my money and it only cost me $225 directly from AMD / ATI perk of having direct contacts and such at multiple companies. So all in all I have like $800-$1100 in my entire system so I think you need to rethink your comments I have stated it before I get everything wholesale / direct price from AMD / ATI / Intel / Nvidia and so on so rethink those comments.

so 3x hd 7970's cost me $225 I had 2 laying here that were new in box i got free from testing i also had the ram and my asus 990fx sabertooth r2.0 ( also had a FX 8320 laying here but used it in a server build of mine ) and a couple SSD's laying here which I later upgraded to 2x 256gb ocz vector's I got for $160 a piece new and my soundcard sound blaster Z I got for $65 new I had 4x killer 2100's laying here new I got for $45 a piece I used only 1 in this rig any more info needed oh win7 home premium 64bit I got for $25 from the college I have 8 copies here new ready to use I got for that price. I also got my AMD FX 8350 for $100 new directly from AMD shipped to my door overnight do the math.

my I7 4770k rig I built and had running before the haswell was even released by like 1-1 1/2 month before cost me $500-$700 including a gtx 670 yes i know crazy huh but this is the outcome when you got alot of connections and family in major companies like Intel / AMD / ATI / Nvidia and so on not including game develpemtn companies like Blizzard / EA / Activision / Infinity ward / and so on and also do hardware testing for these companies.

These are some of the perks of being a hardware tester for multiple companies including intel / AMD/ATI / Nvidia and many more and I often get free hardware or I will test a piece of hardware after im done I send it back once they release hardware I was testing they often send me a free one or give option to buy it dirt cheap or simply give me the one I tested.

I also want to point out I had a I7 3770k rig that was running SLI gtx 580 zotacs the ones that were portable bombs that went off unexpectedly trust me they both went nearly gave me a heart attack and made rig stink so bad in end when rma came in for the cards I literally gave the rig away ( $500 for everything to my soon to be brother in law ) because it stunk so bad like burnt electronics and such. I tried everything to get the smell out of it no go then I had alot of hardware laying around for newwer AMD AM3+ setup so I went that route hince main rig I have now and I have no complaints about it and facts are I cant tell the difference in games at all.

Also with proper tweaking / modifications and overclocking can get pretty good scaling aound %85-%95 across all gpu's in my rig so saying that trifire is useless or is crippled by my machine is BS with proper setup / tweaking and overclocking you can get them to scale pretty well maybe %5-%10 less frames per second compared to I7 3770k heavily overclocked on same cards. So either way I am far above 100 FPS in all situations I have been in usually more near 150-175 most of time in eyefinity 7680x1600 resolution.

I also want to point out it is my time and money I will put it where I want to.

Well I suppose it depends which one you buy, but say $350 a piece (higher priced but still some are selling for that)...lol.

7970x3 = ~ 1050

8350 = 200

so yeah, certainly not 6x but 5x

no not most expensive look at the titan then redo your math. Intel doesnt discount or give much price beaks even for me. http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-Dual-Link-Graphics-06G-P4-2790-KR/dp/B00BIUKH04/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1377104087&sr=8-1&keywords=nvidia+titan the most powerfull single GPU card

even gtx 780 http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-GTX780-SuperClocked-03G-P4-2784-KR/dp/B00CUIVSNS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1377104132&sr=8-1&keywords=gtx+780

even gtx 770 is more expensive http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=gtx%20770

or gtx 680 http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-Classified-Graphics-04G-P4-3688-KR/dp/B008HZ53ZC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1377104185&sr=8-1&keywords=gtx+680

all of these are far more expensive than my 7970's http://www.amazon.com/XFX-DisplayPorts-PCI-Express-FX797ATDBC-FX-797A-TDBC/dp/B006W3ZU4U/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1377104231&sr=8-7&keywords=ati+hd+7970 the version I have 3 to be exact ( and are on liquid cooling ) 2 were free 1 cost me $225 new so get over your self waterblocks I got new EK for $50 a piece new directly from EK.
