What do you guys suggest? :)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I have a 5970 and after a clean image restore to just the OS I have been unable to get my overclock working again. Currently I am getting errors if I pass around 850 MHz vs where I had it at 950 (the cards always been moody). Its a old card that served well for several years so I am just going to go with something new vs troubleshooting. This time around think I will gonna go with Nvidia.


so with no further delay

I have 3x 24 inch asus monitors 1920/1080 so getting the 4g vram is pretty much a must I think (planning to crossfire when the money is available)
What do you guys think?
The other thing that seems to be weighing in on my decision on these choices is the 800 and its Maxwell architecture (thus not spending on the 780.
TBH Id like to wait for them, but thinking the price might be a tad big and the bugs may be numerous, so looking for a band aid until the 900 series before spending 500+ on a single card.

So what do you guys think? + rep to all constructive posts
And thank you for your time and advice!

Just another quick question, this thread was opened in a directory that has some incredibly large threads. For such a small thread should I have opened it elsewhere like a suggestion thread vs nvidia graphics card thread?
