    Hi I had help from the forum about a month ago choosing a graphics card and I settled on a Gainward 770 but circumstances made me use some of my graphics card money on something else so I couldn't afford the 770 but I came across this card that is in my price range is it any good I know it isn't up to the 770 but the price is a lot less.

    Hi very pleased with the look and size of the MSI Radeon HD 7970 Twin Frozr III/OC Boost Edition and it is also quiet, I have tried it with Hitman Absolution and the graphics look good, I also tried it with Crysis 3 and it seemed a bit glitchy should I be able to play it with everything turned up or am I pushing it a bit.

    crysis 3 is a hell of a game to try to max out. I'm not surprised you couldn't do it.

    I ran dual 5850's with a i7 930 6gb of ram and it wouldn't play anywhere close to high, I had to do low medium settings. Try going for medium and see how it plays, then up the settings a little at a time.
