Nope, but I am holding on to my current GPU until the next AMD line drops and then buying whatever is the best not called Titan biggrin.gif

Serious question here: How much of a price drop could AMD execute (while keeping up its "Never Settle" bundles) before actually losing money on each card sold? One would think that their margins are already stretched exceedingly thin due to the aforementioned bundles as it is...

AMD's 7970 Ghz ed. still has greater value due to the "Never Settle" bundle, but the GTX 780 is very tempting now.

I do lol, common sense tells you that if you max out Crysis 3 with an underpowered card you get a nice slideshow.

Yes Crysis 3 does eat up around 1.5GB's of ram while maxed out, I don't need to worry about that cause I don't max it out.

Then you DID NOT hit a Vram limit. What does it take to make people understand that what rivatuner tells you is cached is completely different than what the card actually needs to operate. You hit Vram limit for real, and you're going to experience a 2 to 4 frame per second slideshow.

Here is a good gameplay graph that shows what happens when you actually hit a Vram limit, 0 FPS.

Well, I'll just be guessing on this one. When the next gen AMD cards are released, you can make a educated guess that the Never Settle bundle will stop shipping with previous generation cards and allowing AMD to cut the price that one extra bit, since it's become a last generation card to focus on the Volcanic Islands. Same goes for any last generation GPU, presumably.

If you exceed your vram, the game will flatline your framerate.

Arent the none Ghz edition ref cards better than the Ghz one? Least for overclocking?

They're not even different in the first place, get a ref and flash to ghz edition BIOS, boom ghz edition card. I would not pay extra for that.
