The sapphire 7970 at $300 on newegg right now is very tempting,maybe the reviews for the gtx760 are flaky but most suggest the 7970 is slower at stock versus the gtx760.....was kinda set on a 4gb gtx760 at $270 but the $300 7970 is tempting,biggest issue is my cx500 psu and its 38amps......and hacking my case half to hell to get that 11'' monster in there lol.

7970 would run over a GTX 760.

Huh?

Here is a good conglomeration of 6-10 reviews at 3D Center. The average across the different reviews show the stock 7970 to be 13% faster than the 760 and a 7970Ghz to be 26% faster.

The Sapphire Dual-X 7970 at Newegg right now is an excellent deal. $280 AR, unlocked voltage, great cooler, 3 free games, and only 5% slower at stock than a 7970Ghz edition. I had one of these for a couple months when I was mining and it was a great card.

A 7970 GHz is faster than a GTX 680 in many cases. A GTX 760 is slower than a GTX 670. I think you are confused.

To the OP, watch the temps on that card. They are not known for having a good cooling setup. When running those benchmarks, have Afterburner or something up to monitor the GPU temps.

Come on buddy, you can do better. Don't let a lowly 7950 beat you ;)

FX 8320 4.8GHz+ HD 7970 1230/1700

P10577 <--- Due to CPU/Physics & Combined Score

Graphics Score: 11826


i5-3570L 4.8GHz+ HD 7950 1325/1845

P11144 <--- Intel chips perform better on the physics test

Graphics Score: 11858



Looking at the graphics score your card surpassed my 7970 at a much lower clock by only 32 points lol. Try harder :p

Check to see if the V.me promo code still works. It takes 10% off up to $30, but you have to checkout using V.me. If that doesn't work, Newegg usually have promos like $25 off $250. Saw the 25 off 250 twice earlier this month.

They shut off the Vme for any promo items with the videocards. If you add a filler you get this error now.

"The promo code vme20bts requires a minimum purchase amount of eligible items before it can be redeemed."


Newegg is getting smart.

I bought a Sapphire 7950 + 3 game codes for $180 AR with the V.me code about a week and a half ago ^_^.

Beaten :p still at a lower clock

FX 8320 4.6GHz + HD 7970 @1250/1850

Graphics Score: 12121
Now that's what I am talking about :thumbsup: Goes to show the 7970 is about 75-100Mhz faster than the 7950 clock for clock.

Yeah Durvelle bought Elfear's third 7970. Looks to be a pretty killer card.

I sold my 10 year old Sony FW900 @ 2304x1440 @ 80Hz for 40 bucks. BUt it had issues it could die at any moment and I told the guy that. Who knows now if thats still working or not. going from 2304x1440 @ 80hz ,,,,, However what I have now is closest to a CRT like feel in FPS games.. no laggy mouse when vsync on , no 60hz,, I made custom res changed to 70hz and mon took it. It says in the mon settings its @ 70hz . I tried this on my friends old LG 2ms but it didnt work. my eyes def hurt much less.
