Go with the 780 OP, and sell the 7950's or 1 and give the other to your bro.
It's called google bro.. AMD CrossFire™: harnesses the power of two or more discrete graphics cards working in parallel to dramatically improve gaming performance
So now that you now that theres nothing "Crossfire" about the 7990, why would you suggest he DOWNGRADE to the 780? His CF 7950 will pimp slap the 780 any day of the week. The 780 is an absolute joke when you consider that it is only marginally better than the 7970GE, which costs $250 LESS.

OP, are you looking for better performance? If so, the 780 will get its ass handed to it by your CF 7950's. You might as well keep what you have and give the free-bee to your brother. If you are looking for better performance, that 780 would easily sell for $600 here in the marketplace. Thats enough for 2 more 7950's. Tri-Fire for you, single for your bro
How you get a free 780 BTW?Edited by 2advanced - 5/29/13 at 4:39pm
