Asus DirectCU II TOP EDITION 7970 or 680 ?  

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Tittle says it all guys.

i had a Asus DirectCU II TOP EDITION 7970 at stock it got me 110-115 fps in BF3 CANALS TDM 64 PALYER

when overclocked to 1125 core / 1600 mem i got 125-130 fps in the same map again 64 players.

i will unlock it with afterburner its easy from what i can tell.

will the 680 at stock beat 110-115 fps in BF3 CANALS TDM 64 PALYER ??

and also keep in mind the 680 is 2GB and 7970 is 3GB which most games use very close to 2GB and some actually more from the tests that i done. i had 570 SLI it was 1280mb so one day after they patched BF3 my frames where very unstable so i sold them. i dont want to end up like that !! and its hard to sell if the Vram of you card is starting to get outdated.

also the price for the 7970 is 568 $

while the 680 price is 715 $


Also if i get the 680 i can get it today but for the 7970 i have to wait untill stock becouse the last of the stock you dont want to buy becouse they save the worste for the last biggrin.gif

Can i overclock the 680 better than the 7970 ?? which i think is very hard but still i wanted to ask you guys.

Is it easy to unlock the 680 too ?? and if i overclock will the warrenty be no more ??

these are very important factors too !

one last thing i will be seeling the card that i get in 10-11 months time i will get a 790/8990 or 780/8970 graphics card when they come out. and for easy selling i think there are alot more nvidia fanboys out there lols biggrin.gif but the main factor here is performance and only performance !!


- Thank You -
