Using a GTX 600 from Best Buy for a few days until I order something.

I took my 7950s out of Cfx today to bench a single 7950 (I'm trying to burn it up; literally)

Was going to say you could have borrowed a 7950 until you decide on a 7970/770/780. (I hope you go 780 "Little Titan" for $600)

Appreciate the offer.

Really leaning towards the 7970Ghz

This one actually

I thought the 780s were going to be in the $500s? The only reason I am waiting is to see more details on it before I order something I will regret.

500Euros @ 1.28 exchange rate.. sooo Around $600-650USD?

TBH I would buy a 7970Ghz if you weren't purchasing a 780. I love nVidia but you can't beat AMD atm in P/P department. You guys will freak once I finish my benching of these 7950s I have, for what I paid for them.. they blow you away. (Plus the Twin Frozen III coolers look sweet!

The Sapphire looks awesome; maybe wait 1 week until the 780 drops. See what prices do and what the 780 launches at.

ETA:
Benching my main rig also ATM; my 3770K is bottlenecking the Titans around 1215Mhz. If I could pass 3DMark11 with a 4.8 OC it wouldn't be too bad, but the damn IB CPU isn't too stable.

Blah.. 3770K bottlenecking my WHOLE system.

The facts are right there in my face. When trying to find my highest stable offset I noticed only a 260pt difference from +245 to +290(My highest stable). Now most of you would say just push the 3770K more, true. The problem is I can pass Prime and game stable @ 5.0GHz 1.48V but can't pass the physics test in 3DMark11 at those speeds. Hell.. my highest OC for the 3770K to be stable in 3DMark11 is 4.6 and not a notch higher

33234 for the graphics score.. damn physics score is only 11955

3DMark P22416

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts
I am I am.. I have been waiting for IB-E since December.

You see how low the physics score is holding me back? I'm getting 1222GHz on both Titan cores.. I should be in the 24K overall area.

Just waiting because I want my IB-E 4960X build to be a retarded elite build.

I really want that guy that was selling his build to try to test you with his 3970X build that he has (so he says), would be great to see how well that benches

Who are you talking about with a 3970X? What GPUs does he run?

Anyway, would you be free to sell that monitor around 530?

Eta: I'm buying a X79 board and used 3930K from eBay. I will unload this 3770K before haswell drops.

If he was telling the truth then he has builds with parts no one has even heard of. He was hyping up some pretty amazing builds but he got his feelings hurt so we will never see them.

Apparently he has other builds of epic proportions too even though he has never ventured over here before and didn't want to join our enthusiasts threads. Basically he took his ball and went home.

I thought he just had a 3770k?

That was an expensive build.. But not worth 3500 ATM. My main rig is was around 6500 but I know it isn't worth 4000 if I tried to sale. Water cooling equipment and cases have very little if any resale value.
