Hello,
I have trouble picking from these two: 2x HD 7970 vs 3x HD 7950
This is my build: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ZzQ6bWScRo3-QWvdmvEK43rTyF6-1mWEdMGu-ShAvms/edit#heading=h.sd3y7l3onbgs
I care about micro stuttering.
Thanks!

It is generally better to go with lesser no. of cards in Crossfire/ SLI. Sorry but i couldn't see that doc which you have linked. Could you post the parts list here...

I would just go with 7950 crossfire, tri-fire has multiple issues from what I hear. You can easily overclock the 7950's to 7970 crossfire performance and surpass it saving you $200. Stock versus stock the 7970 has only a 5-10 percent advantage depending on the game.

First of all, your motherboard is incompatible to 3570k because it uses an AM3+ socket which is only compatible to AMD CPU's. In order for 3570k to work, you need a LGA1155 socket mobo like Asrock Z77 Extreme 4. I'd go with Crossfire 7950's (Gigabyte Model) it's almost good as 7970's crossfire but cheaper bang for the buck.
