What upgrade to get?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Currently have a XFX 7850 Double D 1 gig

was thinking i can either get a 7950 (or two) , 7970 ghz, a 7990, or get a 9000 series when it comes out

psu wont be a problem

will be getting 3 1080p monitors

budget of about $700 ( for gpu's)

what do you think is the better value? I heard the micro stutter from the 7990 has dropped drastically.


not really a fan of nvidia which is of course why im posting in AMD/ATI

wait till mid-oct for the Hawaii launch. the HD 9950 might be the card to get in the high end. should come at around USD 450 - 500.

thats a press event . they will be under NDA till mid-Oct when the retail launch happens and reviews will be up. specs / performance are speculation but HD 9970 is expected to match or exceed Titan. only after 25th will we get our hand on some leaked official slides
