7950's equal more powerful, 780 equals more logical :D

Thanks man. I recently got a 7950 to replace my old 6770 and I can't return it because I already downloaded the free games that came with it.
I can play most games with all the settings turned up to max except shadows but I was told that's because of my CPU it's an i7 920 but it's only 2.6ghz so I'm going to OC it and hopefully that helps. It handled Crysis 3, Tomb Raider, and Bioshock Infinite really well with the exception of shadows and Tressfx in Tomb Raider and I also had to turn down the level of detail to normal when I was outside and looking far away. It handled Metro 2033 really well with all settings maxed but Metro last light is brutal. And there is no option to turn down shadows. I just want to be able to run all these games with maxed settings at 60fps is that so much to ask? lol

Umm... If Crossfired 7950's are more powerful AND about 250 dollars less than a 780, how is it more logical to go with the 780?

I am not sure specifically why he said that but crossfire cards are known to be prone to micro-stuttering which would not be a problem on a single card. Also not all games support multi-GPU so some older games will not benefit. Such as Skyrim.

I have 2 7950s now and don't see any micro-stuttering. I'm happy with them for the most part but they are still not powerful enough to keep me above 60fps in the most demanding games full time. I guess to do that you need two 780s or two of those new R290X.
