nVidia has sucked since the 8800 and 9800 cards. The entire GTX name cycle has been a flop.

With the exception of the GTX Titan, the 7000 series, dollar for dollar, is still as or more powerful, and it was released January of 2012.

And even with the Titan, dual 7970 GHz cost the same and is considerably more powerful.

 

And nice SSD. The 840 Pro's weren't out when I bought mine, and the 830's were a fair amount slower.

Wish I had waited, but that's how the computer world works, I guess.

 

The real reason I am currently waiting is money and Battlefield 4. Battlefield is the main game I play so that benchmark is weighted more when I compare between cards. Anandtech's benchmarks show the GTX 770 winning in BF3, but that could change with BF4 since the consoles uses AMD graphics so it might be better optimized. Other than BF4, I'm really looking forward to titles like Watch Dogs (and crossing my fingers that Destiny gets a PC release). But I don't know of a reasonable current game or benchmark that is out right now that would be a good indicator of how the relative performance will be between nvidia versus AMD.

There really isn't a good one until a PS4 multi-platform game comes out and / or HD 8000.

I also get up to 130fps maxed out on BF3 with my 7970, but I didn't play multiplayer on account of unapproved sources.

Updated: I bought a second monitor for 5,00€. It's small (15" and 1024x768) but it's perfect for J.River Media Center 18 Theater View.

I compete at BF series but i kept my 6950 flashed to 6970 for like 2 years while bf3 was on top of my competitions and NO PROBLEMS.

Well i use to play all low helping visibility wich is why you kill first and i never went under 70fps under heavy fire or effects. I guess you wont have any problems getting a videocard now. Or are you planning waiting all this time to get a new vga. It doesnt make sense to me, tbh.

 

I have access to this new upcoming bf4 alpha test this 17th june. ill let you know how hungry it is for fps.

If anyone wants to see what it takes to keep 480 SLI cool and quiet on air: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

AXP coolers plus the fan intensive case cooling eliminates the high temps and noise. Lows 60's top card, mid 50's bottom while gaming. However, all that hot air gets dumped into the room. 4 CCFL monitors, a vacuum tube amp, and these 480s required the addition of a portable air conditioner. One winter's night my heating broke so I ran Furmark all night and got the heating fixed the next day.

And hey, if your stove breaks, you can put some tin foil over the shroud and fry an egg.

Nice. Clearly you know your ****. That build is balanced very well.

Except the X40. The X60 isn't too much more and it performs a lot better.

Actually, are you sure it's the 3930K? You have a Z77 socket motherboard.

Had to use my chair as a support to attach my Joby GorillaPod, but it's a Steelcase Leap.

 

Running a 5 year old MacBook Pro.

Bose Companion 3 off of a Motu Ultralite Mk3 Hybrid on Firewire

Meier Audio Corda HA-2 from a HRT Music Streamer HD along with a Corda Cross-1

Beyer T-70 or Senn. HD650 for headphones

 

 

Really fond of the USBFirewire.com angled USB and Firewire cables. Also have a Belkin 7 port hub that my Keyboard and mouse receiver branch off of. I mounted the USB Hub under the bottom side of the Rain Design M-Stand with heavy duty tape, they're both the same natural ano. Al as the laptop.
