HIS AMD Radeon 7970 x 2

Post by Qube » Sun Apr 01, 2012 6:52 pm

Picked up two GTX 680's - selling my 7970's. Honestly a great card.

Comes with boxes, everything like they were brand new... What's a good price? $440 each?

Haha, what the hell! Buying a card once every month now?

I am realy tempted to offer you 800 for both lol but that would take money out of the engagement ring budget

I'm really curious. What's wrong with THESE cards that make them so offensive to your needs? Also, why the move back to Nvidia? That one is just out of my curiosity. I heard some horror stories about how game developers are neglecting ATI, lately.

He's planning a murder, and they are not big and heavy enough to kill with, by his calculations.

No reason. In fact I didn't even really notice a framerate change to be honest. The thing I don't like about AMD cards is that crossfire does not work, under any circumstances, in windowed mode games. Works fine for full screen - but no windowed mode. I play almost all of my games short of FPS in windowed mode.

Edit: It was implied but I guess it should be said - SLI works fine in windowed mode.

I don't upgrade for benchmarks or anything like that - only really care about real world differences. I haven't installed 3D Mark or whatever its called now since like 2004 or 2005 I'd imagine.
