    On a happy note, i finally scored a CPU, a 3770k :D

    So as soon as that comes, I should be good to go, running the 7870(7930) and the 7770 hopefully in the same system. it's going to be running off an XFX 550pro, which I think will be fine, considering the 7770's low power draw, but if not I will have to change things up.

    i'll be posting back later with an update when i get everything in and installed. :toast:

    For the system I am speccing out, I could run to 7930's + everything else would be about 500 watts. With a 7770 it should be fine. If anything, you could undervolt the cpu while keeping stock clocks just to save a few watts.

    Edit:
    System is a Phenom 965BE, asrock 970 extreme 4, a single 8gb stick of ram that was free with the board, and two 7870xt(7930)s. It will crunch for a bit but not for long.

    Let me know how that works out for you. I'm assuming that you can only set the number of WUs per card to be the same for all cards, so the different cards will take different amounts of time to complete them.

    Oh, and thanks for stealing that CPU out from under me :p

    Sorry good sir. :roll:

    I don't know yet about having mixed cards in the same system, but I'll be looking into it.

    I'm sure Norton and [Ion] already know the exct answer.

    My 7770 could do 4, but the 7870 could do 8...? Therefore, if I can only set one number of WUs, it would overload the 7770. Keys hope it woks out and I'm able to run both :rockout:

    If you did 8 WU's on the 7770 it would run about 18-20 minutes each, but that's with two cards on my 3570K.

    Yep, I am running a 3770K and a 7870 as well. the card runs 8 wu's and is still very usable. If your not going to use the system the 7870 will be able to run 10 for sure.

    My HD7850 does 8 with no issue; I think that a HD7870 would do ten. I think that your best bet is probably to run six/card--a bit too much on the HD7770 and not quit enough on the HD7870, but still should work pretty well :toast:

    Well the 7970 has not came in yet and was shipped Saturday :( The seller says he called the PO and it left their facility on Monday so I am really heart broken. He said if it doesn't come in today then he will file a insurance claim :(

    I sent something to kenkicker once (he lives about 90 miles away from me) through Priority Mail. I think it took a week to get to him. Remember, Priority is not guaranteed to be delivered in three days.


    Anyway, I got my Asus 7770 back from RMA, so now I have too many cards (not enough machines to use them all :( ). I'm going to sell the MSI shorty since it isn't playing nice with the two systems I've tried it in. If anyone feels lucky and wants to try this card out, here's a link:

    MSI R7770-PMD1GD5 Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB 1...

    What are you using to post on the forum? If it's a smart phone there may be a tethering app available to link your PC to the internet (data charges may be pretty high though)

    FYI- I use Easytether as a backup to connect with.
