Don`t ya just love it when people reply to an ages old thread. LOL They should just PM people directly to see if they have resolved their problem or whatever the case may be, but Kudos to vspeck for the effort

Actually no, the 680 is - but who's counting ?


It's okay to add to a thread if it's new and useful information that may help others in a similar situation (helps the googlers, not the OP's 99% of the time) otherwise necrothreading is just... necrothreading

And where is your proof sir? 7970 has better specs so it is better until proven otherwise

thats my humble opinion but the 7970 is better with a higher memory module and has something like over a billion transistors
Umm thanks(?) mate
You do know the thread is 6 months old? Bought the 7970 and been more then happy with it since

That is all fooey you can mix and match all you want only thing is if you want a card with dedicated PhysX or you can run it off the CPU with a download from Nvidia it does not matter you can mix and match any brand not one runs better then another unless you want to put Intel soley against AMD

Both platforms can use what ever but when it comes to CPU's and sockets well those aren't compadible with each other but GPU'S are

AMD altogether doesn't work any better then Intel and Nvida all together it's a preference
