Yeah, I went from a 670 FTW to a 7970, couldn't discern any difference, but that's just me.

Funny thing is my friend who owned the card never complained about stuttering issues. Now that he has the 660ti, he noticed games to be much smoother.

TBH this sounds like a faulty card.

Let me Speculate something. I rarely do it, but let me do it. Doesn't it make sense that since TSMC did not accept the same agreement of paying for failed chips that the failed chips will be a mountain, and therefore not only NVIDIA would have a much higher cost for the GK110 because of the higher size and failure rate hence the reason of a consistently high price, but we also have an indication that the failures are a lot?

Briefly had a 670 4gb and also had a 7970 on hand. For a Single screen, the amd was better but in triple monitors, the kepler was more consistent. Both suck for triple monitors as they don't have enough grunt. This was before the pacing the fix. I ended selling both in the end. Quad Keplers have sucky scaling and the tahitis had massive amounts of screen tearing (pre MST hub).

I have 3x 23" screens on my 7870. Was a breeze to setup. Just plug and play.

I do not game on 3 screens though. I use them efficiency while programming.

No minimizing ftw.

Zotac sent me a 670 4gb since they couldn't replace my 580 3gb. Had some fun playing a bit with both.I ended up picking up a pair of 690s for a killer price.

Throw in another 7870 for Eyefinity, just don't go crazy with the settings.

I have been thinking about getting another 7870.

However I cannot live with having 2GB vram. So i plan to go 280x just for 3GB ram.
