They listed it wrong, just look at the pictures. You can see that there is a DL DVI port smile.gif

Caught it. And thanks. Can the HMDI port on the 7950 or 7970 support 1440p? I will have to check to see if it is on the Mfg website.

Now all I have to figure out is the difference between these model numbers so I can go ahead and place an order via Superbiiz.

^^ Still not sure what people can figure out on those models in the above post, but I have another question.

Are there any 7950 models based on the 7970 PCB? And does that give the card better performance/stability?

are you sure you want to go gigabyte hd 7970 ? its voltage locked . the sapphire hd 7950 boost cards you mentioned are the same

11196-16-20G (superbiiz)
100352-2L (newegg)

newegg has it own internal naming but its the same card. the sapphire model no is 11196-16-20G. thats how its named in all other sites (amazon , etc)

I can buy the 7970 Gigabyte for $315 shipped. It is a month old by a reputable OCN member. So it will cost me an extra 25 over the 7950 boost (which my wife may buy for her computer anyway). $100 more for the ghz edition seems silly unless those game coupons can be sold for at least $40 a pop. Which could be possible, but a hassle. Would you not agree? And for arguments sake would the ghz edition bring that much more performance? Plus once the volts go up the hotter it gets and the louder the fans get.

I would prefer an unlocked version too, but the price is hard to beat and i can still increase its performance to some limited degree.

at the same clocks a HD 7970 is 5% faster than HD 7950. a unlocked HD 7950 is a better option than a locked HD 7950 . also with a new HD 7950 boost you get 2 games which you can either enjoy or sell for 30 - 40 bucks each (USD 60 - 80 saved). so your HD 7950 boost actually costs more like USD 220 - 240.

if you want HD 7970 go for Sapphire HD 7970 OC (1 ghz) . USD 410 with $10 OFF your order over $100 w/code: MELTDOWN, ends 02/25 and $20 mail in rebate . free shipping. USD 400 (380 after rebate) . unlocked voltage.

if you like the gigabyte HD 7970 OC . USD 380 with free shipping. but locked voltage

my vote goes for the sapphire hd 7950 boost . unbeatable price perf.

I ordered that 7950 you mentioned as well as others because I know if nothing else it is the best price to performance ratio and my wife doesn't care to spend another $100 for 5% gain.

Let me clarify something though. You say if they are clocked the same the 7970 is only 5% faster. That Sapphire 7970 OC you mentioned can be clocked higher. So would it really only be a 5% difference between that and the 7950 boost? And when overclocking the 7950 to a reasonable rate, how much does it increase the temps and noise (due to fans)?

Keep in mind this will be going in a new Lian Li PC7HX case with two Noctua 140mm fans in the front, a NHD14 CPU cooler, and a Gentle Typhoon 2150 exhaust fan.

The other case is a Fractal Design Define R4 which will have two 140mm Corsair Quiet fans in the front and the same exhaust, but slightly different CPU cooler.

I just bought my first monitor a 1440p 27inch Cross Over, my question is not about the 7970 or the 680, i have a 570 right now, would the GTX Titan allow me to play most games at ultra and get smooth FPS with this res?
