ive tried telling the customer similar to what your saying, originally i told him to go with a single card setup, now he has just rang me saying he is thinking of getting rid of the 7950's and getting a gtx 680, and i agree about the 60hz monitor statement you said above well i cant see no difference in 60 and 120hz.

thanks mate

If the system is locking up on the splash screen that isn't the video card it is a memory issue or something hardware related not GPU

If it was a GPU issue you would have heard a loop noise then distortion and possible restart so it isn't the GPU

Im thinking if he has massive fram drops and micro stuttering is due to drivers or even yet have it overclocked to high sometimes overclocking a piece of hardware to high has reverse effects

He can try a single gpu if that isn't the problem test the PCI slots with another card for testing sake it could be a bad pci -e interface port

when i first got my 7970's i had lag micro stttering you name it but in the end it worked it self out drivers and tweeking

Hey Solar, he was using my 480's why i went on holiday and had no issue at all, he tried each card individually incase of a fault gpu and it ran smooth, its just weird, thats why i thought could it really be a driver issue.

thanks bud for your help

BF3 is not 'low end'. To max out BF3 you need multi cards. (Particularly since he went and bought a 120hz monitor )
Uh no.. you cannot debate how your organs functions, eyes cannot parceive past 60hz. Period.

And you really don't need multi cards to max out BF3... at all.

What kind of board is he using ? and sounds like he might have an onboard killing his joy or even yet you have intel graphics enabled ?

I mean all GPU's should work the same but something might be hendering him in the bios

look at all the video settings

sorry to bump this thread but have you considered running gpu benchmarks and comparing with other dual 7950s to see if they match or are more or less the same
