you can unlock the voltage and raise your clocks to the high 12's and some hitting 1300's on average.
I run SLi 670's in Surround and will not be upgrading those to the GTX 7 series.

just another suggestion.. smile.gif

Was thinking about it the other day, but I don't want my power consumption to skyrocket. I'm only on a 400w PSU you know.

Free games are always nice biggrin.gif

I think I'm gonna go for a 780 if it's reasonably priced(500-600euro). And if it doesn't meet those requirements I'll go with a 7950/7970 with some free games.

GTX 660 or HD 7870 will get you by very well for a few months or so.

just another suggestion. smile.gif

Hmm I don't think those card really have the power for smooth ultra 1080p gaming, no?
ULTRA....? no, not that but very high...
I like the requirement but thinking you should try to mod your BIOS first and clock it higher..

I bought an asus 670 dc2 april the 14th for 380 euro and been enjoying the card quite a bit, runs everything very smooth at ultra. Haven't tried crysis 3 though. I tried to overclock it as high as possible and 1220mhz core seems the highest I can get it at in unigine Valley 1.0 and 1800mhz memory. This nets me 1951 points in valley at extreme hd. I guess this is good but I wish I could get higher just for the sake of it tongue.gif

I have an offer on this card right now of 320 euro shipped. Should I do it?

That makes around 70 euro loss in a month but with my exams coming up I better not be gaming in the next month anyway. And with the 700 series I guess overal gpu prices will go down. I might pick up a 7950 or 7970 this summer with some sweet games included and stay around or above 670 performance levels, or I might buy a new 670 for around 300 by then and it might overclock higher than my card now with a little bit of luck. Or I'll buy the 770/780.

Suggestions are welcome.
For that price you should at least consider it. Your exams are more important than gaming and if you know it's the only way to prevent you from playing video games instead of studying, I would go for it. Also, the 7950 offers comparable or better performance and is much much cheaper (around 10-20% depending of the version). It's basically a win-win situation for you. You won't get such an offer once the 700 series rolls around. People selling their 600's will be all over the place and you'll probably get 250 or so. Of course, there's always the possibility Nvidia releases some kickass drivers for the 670 and it ends up outperforming the 7950 but it's worth the risk. I'd say go for it.

Edit: I tried Crysis 3 and got the following:

Everything maxed at 1080p and 8X MSAA: Outside on the first lv I would have around 20-25fps. Inside around 30-35.

Everything maxed at 1080p with AA disabled: Outside on first lv around 35-40fps. Inside around 45-50 with the occasional peak to 60.

Everything on High at 1080p with 8X MSAA: Outside on first lv around 25-30 fps. Inside 40-45.

Everything on High at 1080p with AA disabled: Outside on first lv 45-50 with the occasional 60. Inside 50-60.

I have to admit I don't see the difference with AA. Might be because the whole level is too dark to notice but I kinda like the sharp edges, it gives the game a grittier look.

Thanks a lot for the advice and the testing of crysis. Was this testing done on the 7950 or 670 btw?

It's on a overclocked stock EVGA GTX 670. Max Power Target +122%, GPU Clock offset +140MHZ and Memory Clock offset +384MHZ. From what I've seen, your version should have more headroom for OC than mine. This card is damn fine but the 7950 catching up to it does leave a bitter taste in the mouth.

Like all the others mention, if you wanna sell your 670, better do it fast; HD8XXX series are already released and GTX 7XX series will definitely be coming out soon.

Alright thanks for the info. Rep +. I can get 1241 mhz on the core clock maximum before crashing in metro 2033. In gpu valley it is only 1215. Yea it is a damn fine card, I am still hesitating. I don't like the hassle with shipping and risk of the card arriving da;aged with the buyer and then what.

I say keep it for now and do a BIOS mod for more voltage then decide what to do
and by then the GTX 7 will be here.

But by the time 700 series is here I won't get that good of a price.
