I'm looking to replace my Radeon 4870X2. As far as the rest of my setup goes, I have an Intel i7 920 and an ASUS P6T Deluxe motherboard with 6GB of DDR3 and an Intel 80GB SSD so I think all of those components are fine for now. I've been looking closely at the Radeon 7970 vs. GTX680 and I'm somewhat torn. The GTX680 does look to spank the 7970 in many of the benchmarks I've seen but I'm still torn. Opinions?
the reason i'm looking to replace the 4870x2 is because it's overheating so badly. it's getting up to 109C within about 10 minutes of gaming and that's WITH the fan at full blast. i've sprayed everything out with compressed air to no avail.
