OVERCLOCKING:MaybeSLI OR CROSSFIRE:No
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I would like the card to remain cool and have a good warranty. I would like to run Battlefield 3 at Ultra (if possible), Bad Company 2 at the highest, Modded Skyrim, and Modded GTA IV (The ENB Graphics Mod).
I hear that the 7900 series cards are great overclockers, which is why the 7950 intrigues me. Also the 3GB may be useful for when I play modded Skyrim. But I also hear that Nvidia has better drivers than AMD does. Also the GTX 670 fares better in the games I play the most.
And also for my photoshop, AAE, and 3DS Max, which would fare better for these uses? Nvidia or AMD?
Thank you for your time and Cheers!
