My main reason for coming back here before I order is to ask if i should stick with the 7970 or go with the 680. I've seen benchmarks showing the 680 lacking in an SLI config and also for some reason the 680s on amazon are all over $600. Any help would be appreciated.
Sorry for not responding my internet was down. I'm not planning on playing on high resolutions. I'm just unsure as to which graphics card to go with. The 680 outperforms the 7970 in many games but the 680 from what I've seen doesn't do well in SLI and for some reason all the 680s on amazon are >$600. The 7970 also have custom coolers already. I have to go to sleep now i'll check back tomorrow.
i would recommend gtx 680 for
1. it has phyx
2.it supports 4 monitor which amd do too
3.it showed to overtake the amd part in lot of games except metro 2033
4.actually it is cheaper but dont know about the price hike
5.it runs lot cooler and eats less power and still is the powerful gpu
6.it supports 3d surround vision which is awesome
the you got is awesome but get the cm storm trooper which is better
