Thank you sir. Looking at things, it kind of makes sense. Your graphics score is slightly higher than mine, I have 8624, it's not that big of a difference. The overall score is 1k more because of the CPU, the 3770k at 4.6 GHz vs a stock FX8350 - explains why the difference. Thanks for the results, appreciated!

Btw, just for reference on Unigine Valley: On Extreme HD with my workstation CPU E5-1650 / GPU EVGA GTX670 I'm getting 38.6 FPS - all stock. So I'm guessing that getting close to/matching/slightly exceeding this on a half priced system (or less) is quite nice :-)

I am running windows 8 with a 1200/1500 OC on the EZ edition. P9358 or something like that is my best score in 3dmark11. So i think win 8 may help a bit

Windows 8 won't really help except for the better memory management.

im not well versed in the differences between win7 or 8 but please enlighten me as to why my score would be higher like that? seems like others beat my score but same time theres others with similar setups that have a good chunk lower? so whats the difference if not the OS?

Hey guys.
Not trying to start up a heated debate, however, I'm looking to order a 7870 tahiti edition and I'm wondering which stock cooler is the best. Noise is not to much of a problem as this rig is used mainly as a work computer. I need a 3rd monitor which is why I'm in the market to upgrade my 8800gt (its seen better days, epic card though)
Its a toss up between any edition. If anyone has some recommendations using amazon/newegg, I'm down.
So far I'm looking at these two: powercolor 7870 ez edition and MSI 7870 (is this a tahiti edition?)

Thanks to any replies!
JM

also - do you guys think there will be any issues with my ddr2 rig & the 7870?

Yeah, I thought that was weird also. My only guess is that I hit the F9 button as the first frame of the video was filling. As you know F9, starts the benchmark run.

Other runs at this oc do not show such a low number.

The EZ card is a Tahiti LE but is not the same quality as the Myst or Sapphire Tahiti. The MSI card you indicate is NOT a Myst Tahiti LE card.

I am using DDR2 and I still have competitive benchmarks and game marks with others. Not a problem at all.

I'd prolly go EZ edition. seems to be less issues, lighter stock heatsink so card shouldn't bend or sag as much over time if at all. The sound will get annoying though unless you're deaf lol (i never had sound issues but this card pissed me off a little it was so loud at first before getting used to it), but thats an easy fix with some tinkering lol. seems the saphire xt cards may be a little bit better OC on the core and better stock coolers but really all these cards are mid range in AMD eyes so they all seems of equal quality. just be prepared to tweak a bunch in settings and maybe the cooler if it bugs you. but dollar for dollar its a rediculous deal, and its been a lot of fun biggrin.gif

i think this card will max your machine abit but should be no problems to get good performance from ddr2, but maybe a haswell upgrade is in your future after the card? wink.gif you'll be blown away by the upgrade so enjoy it bud!

Did you have to overvolt anything to Overclock the memory to 16xx?

Only the gpu is overvolted to 1.213 @ 8% power level. The memory is Hynix and on some reviews has been clocked to 1785 but I am staying only near 1700. My memory is heatsinked as I my gpu is on water. The review I mention used the stock cooler and heatsink.
