I have the reference cooler but I adjusted my fan curve so temps rarely break 80c.

I also game with headphones. Lol

i recommend keeping the card at stock and oc your cpu to 4.5 if you can. let's wait for mantle.

I can't. My budget was really limited when I bought the CPU so I had get a cheap cheap mobo.

Mistake, I know.

Aside from the terrible valley scores nothing was wrong. Just flashed the bios to 290x for them extra shaders, baby. which led to a massive performance boost in valley but still not good compared to other cards..

Would 3dmark be more of a fair benchmark?

yes, but you got to remember that the cpu and its oc has a bit of an influence to the graphics score. benchers will go the whole lenght of picking the right ram to use.

here is a high clocking 7950 . . .

and a 290

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/2072325

most benchmark will show the 290 about 30% faster. the best gauge, though, are games. at 1080, the 290 will max out games the other can't.

Buy a used z68/z77 motherboard or buy a new z77 extreme3/extreme4 or something at 140usd mark(if you want new)
