I am curious in my new build I want to go with a gigabyte windforce 7970 for power and performance. Was wondering if i could get more power and performance by running 3 200.00 radeon cards. I will be running 3 monitors.
The 7870 LE is $250 and is just a cripple 7950 (runs on tahiti, just like the 7970,7950), and two of these would blow the 7970 away. It would be like crossfire 7950's just for alot cheaper price lol.
Although I agree with your assessment of the 7870 LE, I would have to suggest going with either the 7950 or 7970 for this system simply due to the 3GB of ram instead of the 2. At 5760x1080, the OP will be needing the extra ram.
