But really thanks I appreciate the kind words! I've dealt with exactly what you're saying, so I try my best
Actually I agree with splinterize over my own advice. I run one 7970 and two 7950's, and once you overclock the 7950 you've pretty much saved yourself a chunk of change. Obviously they're not the same card, but pretty damn close enough! CrossFire 7950's would kick ass, especially OC'ed!
