    You can get the same with a single 7870 and use only 150watts

    Drop me a PM if you're interested in one- haven't quite decided what to do with mine yet ;)

    @xvi you come up with the best animated gif's.:laugh: I was trying to find something in the February challenge thread and ran across your Calvin & Hobbes happy dance last night.
    I have no idea what to expect from your GPU's. Sorry. But one 7950 will double your total output by its self. That's what agent00 is running. Is 1000-1200 watts measured? Those are ~150 watt GPU's so you should be doing about 600 watts.

    Backstory, I'm pretty sure I spun a bearing in my Grand Prix. GM 3800 Series II Supercharged with a measly 110k on the odometer. I have someone working on it and he found some pretty good metal shavings in the oil. He's going to tear it down to see if there's hope to rebuild, but it's likely going to be written off. It managed pretty close to the 6.6 second 0-60 it was rated/reviewed at back in '98 (measured with a cheap bluetooth OBD2 reader, so the accuracy is questionable), so it seemed solid before then.
    Now to the point. The higher reaches of my brain tell me I should wait for the final invoice before I start spending money, but a 7870 might be just the thing to cheer me up. I'll get back to you on that.
    Heh. Most GIFs come from things I remember seeing on Imgur (or just around the net). I like to reply in GIFs (thanks to Imgur, most likely), so I've gotten used to comments sparking the appropriate reaction GIF.
    I've been scoffing at video card prices since the whole SHA/Scrypt mining craze started. It looks like some miners are starting to sell off now, so I'm hoping GPUs can be put back to what they're really meant for (video games! I mean, uh, folding!)
    I've been holding on to the 6970s and 5870s for the gaming performance. I've been shy to anything 7000 series and up since the price/3D performance ratio has been relatively low, although the compute performance is, admittedly, substantially higher (not to forget performance/watt). I haven't checked prices recently though.
    About the power usage, I haven't measured, but I don't think it's far off. I recall them not being too far off from the ~250W mark since they all want 2x6-pin PCI-e power. We are talking about the 5870 and 6970, right?

    Card prices are down quite a bit atm- saw a pair of 7850's going for $230 shipped and 7970's are getting pretty close to $200 now.

    Hardforum seems to be flooded with them now ;)

    LOL, .......Sonic. That would be a great mash-up of a game. I remember playing Pacman on my Atari 2600 in the early 80's. Tore up many controllers on that game.

    Awh. I thought my 1.5 mil would be pretty neat, but it looks like someone stole my thunder. Well deserved, t-bob. Well deserved.
