For the 400 dollars you're shelling out to get a GTX 680 or HD7970, you may consider the Quadro 2000 (based on Fermi ,gimped with 1GB RAM and 128bit memory bus) or Firepro W5000 (GCN , 2GB RAM & 256 bit memory bus) if you need precision and 30 bit color

Photoshop CS6 doesn't use CUDA: http://forums.adobe.com/message/4289204

MGE is new to Photoshop CS6, and uses both the OpenGL and OpenCL frameworks. It does not use the proprietary CUDA framework from nVidia.

* Autodesk Inventor uses DirectX, I think Autocad does too.

edit: found another Specview bench http://www.deskeng.com/articles/aabhrx.htm

P.S. I really want to see Specview results from the HD 7950, HD 7870 Tahiti LE, GTX 660Ti, and GTX 670.

That would be the good solution if he was only using this rig for a workstation but that's not an option cuz StandStyll (thread starter) is a gamer (see post #1).

Hmmm, From all the replies I've seen, I am now leaning towards the HD 7970 more than ever. And yes, I am only building one machine for now, it basically has to handle everything I do at a high standard. Though it doesnt need to be the best standard (Say as beastly as a Quadro 5000 or something). If I need to build a workstation later on, ill cross that bridge when that time comes (and when the money comes too lol). Id love to hear someone's opinion of how Rhino and Vray work with a i7 3930K and HD 7970 combo. Anyone have experience in this?

sadly, I don't have any input.

I've used Maya, Cine4D, and CS6, is about it.

Actually Guys Last thing:

So I was going to give Intel the benefit of the doubt since I've trusted them ever since I learned about computers and I wanted to go with the i7 3930K, But then I stumbled upon the AMD FX-8350 Vishera 4.0GHz, Which is labelled as 8 Cores. Is the AMD path now the way to go? how well does the FX-8350 match up to the 3930K in terms of 3D modelling and rendering? As I am pretty sure theyre both fine for gaming. Ive heard that the current generation AMD CPUs dont do as well as they are supposed to. What are your thoughts?

The FX-8350 is 8 cores, but the individual core speed is significantly behind the speed of the core i7. The FX-8350 is more powerful than a core i5, in applications like video rendering, but it is less powerful than the 4 core core i7s, so the 3930k is by far the most powerful, reasonably priced, processor out right now.

lol i7 3930k dominates.

AMD 8350 is more closer to I5 k series at best.

the i7 will be considerably better for the stuff you want to do.
