    No doubt that's a great card Durvelle, I was just saying the 580s are still pretty godd for being 2 generations old. Beside 1 on 1 wouldn't even come close.

    Ya people always say that but I've never had amuch issue with these cards or the dual 9800s I ran before. The odd time I'd get a driver that wouldn't SLI in certain games or Apps but the next one would always fix that. I've heard the HD's on the other hand tend to have more issues with stuttering etc.
    Don't be surprised if you see another 770 in my future. Ha ha

    Ive never had a problem with dual cards either. I've ran 4870 x2, 6850 CFx, 6950 CFx, 7870 CFx. I just prefer one card for less heat, less power usage, and takes up less space also.

    You're right about the heat. Those 580s cranked up are like a small reactor. I ran it 10 days straight last year doing F@H both cards and the 8350 maxed and wow is all I can say even with the windows open it was hot in the room and it was only 10c or less outside.
    But even if I bought another 770 brandnew, they'll beat the 780/titan in performance for half the cost.

    290X aren't worth the premium over 290s and games scale terribly pass 3 GPUs. And no room for 3x 4K monitors. Room like a shoebox lol

    Add that to the list. A bigger office XD

    Yeah I'll definitely let you know. I'm hoping my overclocking woes are related to the fatal1ty. I know for sure some of my memory issues are. I'll be messing with it as soon as I get my hands on it; This is finals week tho might not get a chance for a few days
