If you can get to 1125/1575 (almost guaranteed) or higher (likely), and you're comfortable with that - no reason to return it. If you just want to run your GPU at stock, then yeah return it and get a 680. | Report abuse wolfram23 Graphics card Master March 22, 2012 4:32:21 PM At 1920x1080 it won't matter at all, both cards are pushing max settings and 60fps. I would return it though and just wait because the price has to drop. | Report abuse Anonymous Graphics card Master March 22, 2012 4:40:28 PM Yes, the 7970 at $550 is robbery. AMD's strategy of underclocking their GPU's to rip of their costumers has backfired. | Report abuse Related ressources New build, go with the HD7970 or wait? - Forum Return of AMD FX: My OC'd AMD FX 8150 Review - First Results UP! - Forum Will my system fit a HD7970 ghz? - Forum Is this PSU good for a i5 3570K and AMD HD7970 ? - Forum Phenom II X4 955 + HD7970 - bottlenecking? - Forum Ask the community Publish ricardois Graphics card Master March 22, 2012 4:42:40 PM http://www.tweaktown.com/news/23034/more_gtx_680_benchm... if those results are already real, yes... | Report abuse wolfram23 Graphics card Master March 22, 2012 4:46:49 PM ricardois said:http://www.tweaktown.com/news/23034/more_gtx_680_benchm... if those results are already real, yes...
