Hey people I currently have two 6970s in Crossfire which is an amazing setup im not gonna lie and I only got it like last month, but I am having alot of problems with Crossfire drivers and such (I'm sure you know what I mean). So I just need some advice if you think I should attempt to sell them both on eBay for like 250 each (is that about right?) and get either a 7970 or a gtx 680, or just stick with the crossfire and deal with all the issues?
Also I currently get a fluent 100 fps on Ultra in bf3 @ 1920x1080, which seems to be the only game I have that likes crossfire. Will I be able to keep similar settings with a single card upgrade?
TERRIBLE microstuttering in skyrim and just generally bad frame rates, having issues with temperatures passing 90c. i tried afterburner but i can not get it to change fan speed on 2nd gpu i tried everything. Metro has the occasional microstutter also as well as Crysis 2. Hell I have a single GTX 550 Ti that plays skyrim about as well as cfx 6970s minus the microstutter
Yeah Skyrim is alright maxed out on one, about 50 fps. But nonetheless I dont lose any money selling both and getting a single 7970 and then OCing it, but is it worth it is what Im asking, cuz I've heard if you OC the 7970 it performs only a few fps behind CFX 6970s
The 6970s I have are not second hand and the heat sinks are not dirty at all they are almost brand new. They will hit 90 in most games if i leave the fans on auto, manual its fine but not auto.
I decided I think I will sell them both and get rid of all these screen tearing, fan, and microstutter issues and get an MSI Lightning 7970 and just OC it past the performance of a GTX 680
