hi. i am wondering if it worth upgrading my system. So till far cry 3 came out i was happy with my system. all games was max settings without any bother. by the way my system spec are:


Thermaltake ARMOR lcs
artic frezer i30 (super silent)
i5-2500k 4.5ghz (idle 27c, - max load 58c)
asus p8z68 v pro/gen3
corsair vengence 1600
psu antec 1200w
sapphire 2x7850cf (1050/1350) (idle 22c. - max load 60c)
1x60gb ocz agility 3 ssd for windows 7 64bit
1x120gb ocz agility 3 ssd for most played games online
2x500gb wd cavier in raid for multimedia (movies and ect)

3dmark11 114800 oced stable
3dmark11 9912 factory

So any other game i play max settings and i get at leats 70+fps (i would be fussy about lags i thing 40fps is still abit laggy :) . but then farcry 3 came out and ijust cant play it properly. My setting are 1080p utra no msaa my fps are from 56-100 and i still feel this gliching and to be honest i cant play like that. i read that that is because of amd drivers. what is your recomendation? any offers ?

I HAD 6990 BEFORE 2X7850CF AND IT WAS NO DIFFERENCE ON HIGHEST AND LOWAST SETTINGS SAME THING. thinking about gtx690. just dont know if its worth doing that or wait for another while and change all system?

disable one card. there are a few reported problems with dual 7850's now where people are experiencing worse in-game performance than with a single card.

try 1 card - has nothing to do with 6990 or 690........... 1 card means 1 card. not dual card on one pcb.

i wouldnt expect to be any difference between 2 7850 and 6990, if anything the 6990 might be faster. 2 7850's certainly isnt an upgrade. id just stay away from dual cards, single card gives lower average fps but doesnt let the fps dip so low or get so much stuttering.

ok guys i tryied with one 7850 oced and 1080p utlra no msaa avrg fps 35-55 and its was running way much smoother than 7850cf 56-100fps no gliching or thing like that. hate seeing 35-55 fps but now at least i can play properly. so i came to concluzion that cf isnt grate thing on some games. actually i had 550ti on sli and never had this problem with any game. far cry is first game that give me grief. i have to consider about 680 or 690 i always been a fan of nvidia my firs radeon was 6990(actually i liked it) and 7850cf i swaped over that msi 6990 (no regrets 2x7850cf oced does better job and runs way much cooler and doesnt make that much niose).
