  1. The GTX680 in SLI is better and that PSU can handle it.

    actually its the other way around and yes that psu can handle them
  3. WAY more than enough to handle as for the 680/7970 argument, it depends specifically what games and what resolution
  4. could i just sli a evga gtx 670 FTW 2gb and still get the same performance?

    if you comparing all of them at stock, sorta yes
  6. then what would be the best option if i can use around 700 on video card

    your benchmarks are pre 12.7 drivers and your talking to a guy who owns both a gtx 680 sli and 7970 xfire setup i believe

    edit: not me the guy you are quoting

    Has to be the GHz version for a narrow win with BETA drivers!

    actually, no, like i said it depends on the games in question, for instance, a 7970(normal even) alone would destroy a 680 in skyrim, where a 680 would have sleight of hand vs the 7970 in BF3


    THEN if the op wanted to go to 2560x1600 resolution or play on multiple screens, the performance gap would widen even more in favor of amd cards.


    as for the corsair ax question, yes it will still work
  10. quick question can i change the power supply to a corsair ax850 and still be the same?
  11. Yes it will handle it as well.
  12. and do i have cool the gpu or just let it just be?

    Its amazing everytime I see these threads, you have Vets, Regs, Addicts posting the same thing how the 600 series destroys murders the 7000 series. Most review have a stock 7950 a stock 7970 vs a kepler that has autoboost up tp 1200mhz.

    Nobody said it destroyed each other. Reviews have stock cards because most people use stock cards, overclocked cards are a different league whether it is factory OC or owner.
    My personal opinion is to run these cards in SLI or CF on a single monitor is a waste of money but on multiple monitors at extended resolution is a different story.

    Maybe not in this thread but there is at least 5 threads in the graphics forum in regards to this. Some may chose to run a single monitor 120hz 3D
  16. so what should i get?
  17. would the gigabyte 1 work or not.I heard that it would be more hot if SLIed
