That i don't haha. I was going to upgrade to a 120hz monitor and then eventually try to do a portrait like Vega's setup of course i'd be without lightboost cause of my 7970. Thing is i have a XFX 7970 i have to sale when it gets back. Then if i were switching to Nvidia i would need to sale the diamond i just picked up. The proceed to buy two 670s. frown.gif

Thats a lie you are only seeing performance as a single 7970..

if your sig is up-to-date, then i would suggest to you not to venture sli or xfire. the gpu should be the least of your concern.

edit: btw, sli is not without issues either . . .

No worries working on a new rig. lol my 7970 gets 60% use in BF3 that's bad. At 1200/1700 i only got 1966 score on valley bench and 47fps. The 800D and 3570k are sitting at home thumb.gif

Planning on jumping into water cooling as well.

Specs should be something along these lines.
Case: 800D
CPU: 3570K @ 4.5 or above depending..
GPU: 2x Diamond 7970s
Mobo: Asus Maximus Formula V
Ram: Gskill 16gb DDR3 2400 CL: 9 Or 16Gb of Team DDR32400 CL 9
PSU: Seasonic platinum 1000W

Though just to throw it out there anyone looking for SLi setups EVGA reference 670s are 350$ after MIR.

my Phenom as a Quad at 4GHz and the 7970 can play BF3 MP at 1080 Ultra with 4MSAA just like my i7 rig. my minimums, though, go down to the 40s. GPU usage is at 85% but smooth, though. PS2 is where i needed to unlock the extra cores.

jelly with your diamonds. gl with your watercooling.

I would hit 4.0 if i wasn't restricted due to heat. I can hit it but after 55C i lose stability. Thanks man i'm looking forward to it, i hope the CFX issues are ironed out by the time i pick up my second Diamond.
