lol what did u get in place of that?


cuz i'm seriously hesitating between GTX 670 & HD7970

AMD has pretty poor driver support, switched to AMD/ATI since my 9800GTX+

The XFX DD card i had was horrible and many other say the same

Think that a few of them might be better sort of like some CPU´s can overclock better then others

Short version XFX DD still sucks

I agree, my friend has an XFX 7950 and it is GARBAGE.

I also agree with your 4 recommendations.

I had the XFX DD cooler on a 7870 Ghz Edition, didn't sound loud at all, but can't comment on OC because I only used it for a week before upgrading the GTX690 rolleyes.gif
