    I have to say I've really been impressed with mine. It was a bit pricier but I figured unless I melt it I only need one. If I decide to go for an Intel at some point to play with I just have to get a backplate and bracket and swap them.

    Nice Durvelle. I traded in my 270 for a GTX770. I'm just not a radeon kina guy I guess.
    Have you heard from D1nky?? I've been wondering how he made out with the Big storm that's smashing against Engalnd.

    I know what it is, they did improve the memory with some nice samsungs. It will almost run 8000 effective memory speed. My 2x580s will still mop the floor with it almost 1500 pts difference in firestrike. This card was for a specific purpose though. I want to put the 9370/Sabertooth and this card into a full time computer. It's a real PITA trying to game with my bencher.

    I don't know 2x580s vs 1 7970, It would be really close, but I think I might still come out on top. Here's one of my runs with the 580s, 8936 pts http://www.3dmark.com/fs/763158

    I thiought the 580s would give you a good run on the 7970 they still beat my new 770.

    You are nuts buddy.

    That's good to hear, The news over here is saying the the east coast of England is flooded and Whale got hit hard as well.
    So how do you get paid for these coins you mine??

    thats what im doing atm, LTC baby.

    im thinking on getting a couple more 7950s or a 7990 because they have decent hashrates and efficiency!

    my electric is pretty expensive but if it breaks even or gets lucky i shall weigh up the pros.


    @Johan you can trade coins on exchange sites or sell them for X price.

    litecoin atm is about $35

    i know, even with a slight oc on my 7950 it can hit 700khs

    a 7990 can pull around 1300 :D

    its quite ingenious, mine with X hardware. sell coins - buy more hardware - more coins - more hardware ;)

    290s is the best mining values right now

    290 = 900+ Hash @ 330w / $399 -$15-$20 a day = paid off in one month = add another 290 :D

    id like to try and get my efficiency decent as im using 3 rigs.

    the DCIIs take loads of space, running my 8350 rig requires the loop and everything on.

    i may invest some time and money and see what it can do. but 4 or 5 7950s should be ok split into 2 rigs :D

    I'll be ordering a 7950 or 7870 and throwing it in my E4500 rig to mine 24/7.
