Both cards can be purchased for under $300.00 with current Fall sales. Nvidia has been a bit on the defensive by attempting to slash prices to entice gamers to overlook the better R9 390.
Well that's the funny and lame part. I'm sure you won't find the 780 Ti's for sale. They were an investment at this point. The 780 Ti should blow the 970 out of the water. Less than a 10 month release from one another. The $700 - $800+ 780 Ti High-End flagship was being beat out by a $329.99 mid-range card easily. That's simply laughable and the Nvidia fanboys were even funnier. Constantly defending their favorite GPU maker as if they were on the payroll. It makes me think twice before buying high end Nvidia cards now.
Sorry to hear that. I can't speak for the BSODs, but it happens with just about every manufacturer from time to time. In the US the price different isn't a issue. I'm not sure were you live, but I'm also sorry to hear about your currency issues as well, If you do go 7970 go with the "Ghz" version. A good one will come with 6GBs and I have a friend that still loves his 7970Ghz. Good luck with whatever you get. I hope your investment is worth it for long term use. Otherwise you'll end up wanting to upgrade within the next year.

Thanks Kana-Maru, Yea, Its just something to get by for the next 12 months or so, I used to upgrade every new release but ended up spending more money than was really worth it. Obviously not gonna play that game anymore lol, unless something really ground breaking comes out.

I have my eyes on a matrix platinum 7970, I believe its one of the best cards you can find, not a bad price either. Hopefully it doesn´t sell in the next 4 days.

No problem man and good luck. DX12 is right around the corner so hopefully you'll see a nice gain as well with the next year or so. AMD old and new hardware is DX12 ready. Well it's better equipped to handle parallel workloads.

Hello, Thanks for the reply !! I was thinking the same about the AMD combo., it performs well but it lacks raw power...

Apologies - it was a pre "GHz" card. But the box art is the right one.

Just get a good 7970GHz and be done. I had this:



Though they also did a 6GB version.

http://www.3dmark.com/fs/4270927

Score:7869
Graphics Score 8832
Physics Score 13988
Combined Score 3181

CPU 5650 Circa 4.0
7970GHz at +14% power limit 1190mhz core 1640mhz ram

biggrin.gif

TL;DR
a 390x is not "pretty much a 7970"






The 280x was a beefed up 7970Ghz. both using Tahiti.

The 390x is a beefed up 290x which uses Grenada
280x and 290x totally different architectures.

290x/390x have about 30% more transistors on die than 7970/280x due to having an different die size, same fabrication size but bigger actual die to fit in extra transistors. The layout of the die is different also. 390x is most certainly not a 7970 ......although i really wish it was as i have one here right now in my sons rig. VaporX 7970Ghz



EDIT:

please, dont take my word for it, check wiki to see the spec and die layout etc wink.gif

I really must stop posting in the middle of the night.

He's right, of course.

I guess I was thinking of the 280X.

Yea, I figured it was a typo, 280x is a re-branded 7970 as the gtx 770 is of the 680.

Sadly the matrix sold yesterday so I am SOL, gonna have to find a directcu II or just go for the 970.
