Don't really need to they set you up with a modest one to start with non Ghz 'ed are 925/1375

Ghz .ed some with boost some with out come in at 1050 /1500 others like toxic are like 1150/1600

so you are in the in between as most people on air get a max at about 1200/1600 on water a little higher 1300/1700 the highest but with LN2 core was overclocked sick 1700/2000

There is a video on it

Very nice,unfortunately i will be selling my GPU tomorrow
Getting a 7870xt in exchange and a xbox 360 4GB brand new lol. It was too good a deal to pass up. Plus i hear that CFing the 7870's will be faster,especially the limited edition 7870 XT Joker cards as they have the same tahiti chip's as 7970.
Was going to make a thread about it as well,what are you suggestions Solarstar? I can either get 2 7870's for CF, or a GTX 770 (after some thorough searching).

Single card is always better than two and you would have thew latest GTX 770 SC would be awesome

Hmm,okay,will try to get it or might get two Asus GTX 760's,but it will have to wait,against all my instincts i bought an xbox 360 yesterday,it should be arriving today.

Honestly i see no point in getting a Xbox or PS4 for the fact that my Rig does all that plus

I know there are games out there they make exclusive to the Console but for me i did Consoles from the early 80's 82 to be exact till about maybe 5 years ago

I guess i appreciate the better visuals compared to the one's the Consoles dish out

well i was just getting a good deal so bought it,it has cost me around 200$ for a brand new xbox,and yes i completely agree,there is a huge difference in visuals but consoles do get some awesome exclusives and they are worth playing. Like i have been wanting to play dragons dogma every since it came out,and now i can Its day and night mechanics fascinated me.
