780 or 7950cf

post #1 of 61
Thread Starter 
Well i won a evga gtx780 but already have 2 7950s on crossfire in my main rig and was wandering if i should switch them out or stick with my 7950s in it and give the 780 to my brother. I play games in 5760x1080 by the way.

yes. but before you do run some benchmarks (synthetic and games), then compare. pls.redface.gif

edit: your brother will not forget the gesture for sure.thumb.gif

How about sell both of your 7950s and buy a 2nd 780? I no longer have crossfire, but I hear crossfire still has stutter issues that green does not have.

Sell the 780, and 1x 7950. Give your bro the other 7950, and buy yourself a 7990 thumb.gif This way, you avoid the scaling issues of SLI, and the Micro-stuttering issues of CF all while having the most powerful, single card solution in existence.

How does buying a 7990 avoid CF issues? It is currently one of the most expensive versions of it lol.

Go with the 780 OP, and sell the 7950's or 1 and give the other to your bro.

First thing first, you have all three card in your hand. Try them! try playing some game with 7950s and then with the 780. Dont forget the next driver from AMD due june/july that will reduced micro stuttering/frame latency

You realize that a 7990 is 2 crossfired GPU's on a single PCB, right? doh.gif

You could sell the 780 as brand new unopened, make a fair bit of money and put it aside for future GPU's, as the 7950's are enough for anything atm. HD 8970/ HD 9970 or whatever AMD name it is rumoured to have 6GB DDR5 and come in @ $599.

I recommend you keep that 780 and if your little brother has a anything weaker than a 7950, look out for him & give him 1 of the 7950's. Sell the other 7950, save some more cash and buy another 780 biggrin.gif
