Two 7970's, even used will cost you $600 on the low end. Currently the cheapest 7970 on NewEgg is $380
The thing I like about 7970's (although I don't own any), is that there's so many options for them. They seem to be extremely popular and manufacturers caught on to that. Swiftech makes some hawt Komodo blocks for them that I'm in love with rolleyes.gif

You are right, but eventhough i have 7970s, i have seen some amazing results in 7950s that are a lot cheaper than a 7970 and overclock quite well !

Today, my choice would be 2x 7950s if i was concerned for price to performance ratio smile.gif

If I could have gone back and done my whole build again, I definitely would have gone with Komodo 7950/70's. Unfortunately, selling my 6990 and replacing them with 7700 series cards would just be a hassle. And as much as I'd like it to, the Komodo blocks don't even fit my build =(

Well i suppose u mean 7900 series, not 7700 series...
The swiftech epsilon block of my 6990 was a lot bigger than the komodo blocks i use with my 7970s...

If I were to get an epsilon, I'd transfer over to a Silverstone Raven to show it off. But then I'd have to repaint my entire case.

And it's ACU camo stenciled. Not happening ph34r-smiley.gif

Well, i understand...

Just in case u ever decide to use an epsilon block, i believe its the most beautiful gpu block i ve ever seen. Unfortunately, in my case it was severely bent during shipping and as so it bricked my beloved 6990... Thats the reason i reverted to 2x 7970s

Can't use the EK backplate though =(

Stock backplate looks really bad. I suppose I could make my own...
post #4007 of 4103
Quick question guys, what's the highest stable overclock achievable with air cooling?

Ex, with stock or Accelero Twin Turbo 6990.

I was running 1000/1500 with a very small voltage bump for awhile. Worked perfect.
