    My MSI 7970 shows up tomorrow and I was wondering what driver people are liking the most for their HD7xxx cards.

    Thanks,

    dude did you miss the news :roll:

    12.11 Beta 4, 5-15% performance increase on the HD 7000 series

    makes the 7970 GHz edition faster than the GTX 680
    7970 faster than the 670
    7950 faster than the 660Ti etc etc etc

    I almost never check the "front page" anymore due to too much junk news. :ohwell:

    Thanks for the info though.

    Yeah, i'm on beta 3, might go to beta 4 but these are working out stellar right now. Just wish guild wars didn't have such crap coding, it should fly with my setup

    Nope, current card is going to the misses, and the other 5850 we have is going to my brother. Gotta spread the hardware love around. :D
