I can show you a long list of those people, myself included.
I wonder how many people have dumped their SLI rigs for Crossfire? I mean, it makes perfect sense. Why would someone buy stock GTX 780 SLI for $1300 dollars, when they could have three wonderful and cheap 7950s for $750 new after rebates and discounts and a ton of free games?
I wonder why that's not happening?
oh wait... but then I'd want water-blocks for all the heat to minimize thermal throttling. gotta fix that stuttering. They say Tri-fire fixes all the stuttering, but then there's all that heat. Means new water-cooling, radiators, CPU, GPU blocks and such, bigger case with extended motherboard because I need to use hacks to run my discreet NV PPU for advanced physx. Oh gotta have a superior case. With lots of fans to fit all this stuff in and keep it cool. Maybe gotta squeeze a sound card in there somewhere somehow. oh and did i say lots of fans? No worries... it only cost little bit more for tri-Fire. So much cheaper and better.
I actually was selling a 670 on ebay. I was chatting with a prospective buyer... negotiating a price. I told him, "you know what, in all honesty, they are 7950s out there for under 300 with Free Crysis and Bioshock Infinite. With overclocking, it's better than a 670 with more vram.. If I were you, I'd go for one of those." He eventually used my BIN price which was 60 bucks higher than the cheapest 7950, for a used, stock GTX 670 with no free games and I got most of my money back. Made absolutely no sense. He must have been drinking that NV cool-aid. Edited by spacin9 - 6/1/13 at 1:23pm
