re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts


No doubt.
I'll deal with it, though.

obviously 30 fps on a benchmark test with no action isn't ideal.

But for the baller on a budget like me who games like 2 hours a week nowadays, I'm one happy dude

Me too but I'd rather get a single 670 instead.

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts


How bad would I be messing up buying another 570 and putting it into SLI vs just getting a 7970/680 or something.

I haven't bought anything yet because I have been sort of waiting to see what's new coming out and how that affects current prices. Also, because I have been sort of lazy. After my last upgrade I have been playing games instead of worrying about hardware but Arma 3 is only running around 45 FPS for me. I need to do something.

Keep in mind I bought this 570 for $100 brand new so it's not like I have a lot invested in it. I can sell it used on Amazon for about $200 right now.

ETA: I know I have asked this before but never got a really definitive answer.

A ton..

Microstutter, heat and less OC headroom. Buy a 7950 or 7970 IMO.

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts


Had a 7950. Not sure I want to go back. I know at the time it was driver issues thanks to AMD, but it really put me off.

On the other hand, I have noticed that some of the 7950s are down to $240 or so after rebates. I could grab two of those...hmmm...

Have one and have had it for 9 months, not issues and run everything at ultra at 1980. Adding a 2nd one in the next month or so.

Yea you got yours after I bought mine because I recommended it to you.

My issues were minor and mostly just on Far Cry 3 but I had to put my 560Ti back in just to finish FC3.

Oh yeah, I'd have to buy a new mobo for it too so that's a huge turn off

That wasn't from this board, but you have to learn/accept that there are some on this board that are at another level when it comes to building. The last epeen contest humbled me, I though I had a great build and it is for today's games, but I can't touch the elite on here.

If he is then you have to say that about a few others here too.
