Hello, folks.

I am looking to get either a 2nd 7970 for CFX, or to sell my 7970 and buy 2 of 680GTXs for SLI. I am just not too sure if loosing ~$50-70 in resale of 7970 worth upgrading to 680GTX.

Thank you.

If you bought the 7970 for $550+, you will lose at least $100 in resale, as you're gonna have a tough time selling it for more than $450.

IMO not worth it... just get a second 7970 for $450 and overclock both of them to 1125/1575.

Though so too. I bought 7970 in the second day of its release for $600. Got sight of you're having 7970 Lightning, I was thinking to get it as a 2nd card. Or should I just get another reference one and OC it manually as you said to max CCC settings? What would be a difference between max overclocked reference 7970 and max overclocked 7970 Lightning with NO voltage touched?
