Hello everyone ,

i'm considering buying the 7950 and there are reports that it doesn't work with VrayRT

can someone who has the card AND has the catalyst 12.11 check whether if it works or not ?!

of course it can be checked on 3d max or maya or c4d or rhino. you can use your preferred application.

thanks

thanks for your replies man :D . i see you have an HD6970 and seems to me from your second rig that you work in the 3d production. can you check if your card work with vrayRT ?! ( you can download the demo version if you haven't got it ).

will be waiting . i'll buy the card soon and hopefully going for crossfire, so that'll boost the use of the GPUs and will have 6 gigs of vram, which is very good.

CPU : i7-3770k.
Mobo: Asrock extreme 6.
Ram: 16 gigs 8x2 dual channel.
Storage: 256 SSD and 1.7 tb HDD
PSU : Antec 1000W

GPU : 2x Sapphire 7950 OC 3GB

might go a little lower on specs and invest in a water cooling setup to overclock my CPU and GPU

Nice rig. So you game and do 3d work on the same rig? What apps are you using (planning to use)?

What heatsink/fan are you using?

not gonna use a heatsink untill i have more money :D  . planning on a full water cooling since it's more quite and better performance and visuals. and , for the money, it provides really good results.

as for apps. Yeah, both games and work. mainly photoshop, 3d and might go for video editing. along with programming and simulations.

i was wanting to get an i7-3930k , but for the price difference/performance ratio, i don't think i'll get it.

So, you are using the stock Intel heatsink. If so, I don't recommend OCing with it. Folks do use the stock unit for mild OCing, but I don't think the risk. You are better to wait.

i will actually. i don't plan on spending, say 130$ for a cooling solution such as the H100, when i can get a nice full water cooling from say XSPC for about 200$.
