It's easy to say Tahiti overclocks good under full copper block in a custom loop. Would you have your 7970 @1.22 GHz on air?
Its funny you say that, because yea thats what i ran it at on air. It now runs at 1300/1800 24/7, benches at 1360/1880. I havent updated it yet in the PC specs thingy.

idk why you think 1220/1650 is such a big deal on air, because it isnt.
Doesn't mean it's 24-7 stable at 100% load.



Either way. This thread has derailed. I shall return if the OP comes back for more help.

To be on topic in at least one of my posts, I can testify on quality of nvidia's 700 series. I got myself 770 and I had no issues. Solid drivers and card almost never gets under max boost clock. Temp also never gets to magic 80C and it is summer.

So im going to just say my peace.

Went back and read the OP, and looks like he/she chose the gaming edition of the GTX760(Conclusion). So really all the banter about overclocking, IPC, etc. is pointless at this point, as it doesn't really help the OP in the end.

Honestly Ranger you would do well if you didn't care so much about what people said when it came to AMD vs. Nvidia bullshit. Just because what is said goes against anything that you believe is legit, does not mean you need to go on a big tantrum trying to prove to us with "your experienced wisdom" what is right or wrong.

Leave it alone, OP has chosen a card. And a good card at that for what he wants to do with it.

It gets on my nerves when people base their purchases on bias and not real life facts and specs. Why do you think i have a 3930k over an 3770k/3570k/FX 8350?

Since the OP has made his mind up and bought the GTX 760 I can freely return, as this thread is over anyways.

Ranger, none of us own a GTX 760, so the sensible thing for logical people to do is read professional reviews. The reviews are supposed to be done without bias and prejudice.

Would you rather we all believed you a complete stranger. You said you own a 7950? So how can we be sure your advice isn't bias either. Surely if you own the card your decision would more likely favour your own purchase - That itself is bias and hypocritical.

When both are pushed the 7950 will win. (Assuming you will overclock it)

And yes it's bias when you push the product you own :)

Facts can be proven.

Please provide proof of such claims.
Dude, stop, there have been multiple posts by mods to move along. Don't get it started again. This shit has been going in circles.

Well I never expected this thread to get so popular lol. I said in eariler posts that I've never owned a Nvida card before. I've done my fair share of research, so it's not really a bias decision on what I choose. I have learned a lot here, and I don't regret anything! Thank you guys! :D

I completely understand that 7950 is or could be better, but that takes experience in over clocking which I don't have. So wanting a card that has OC features and default/factory OC settings, has nothing to do with me being 'lazy', just to clear that up. I'm not mad or anything.

@Rangerjr1 Which 7950 card would you suggest that's available on the market today?
I haven't bought anything yet, but so far I'm leaning towards MSI GTX N760.

Can you please link me a 7950 on newegg or any place, that you would buy out of all other 7950 cards? Because I see a lot of 7950 cards.

I'm afraid he can no longer post.

My suggestion is to get what is least expensive and has the best warranty. These things can be found by browsing through Newegg's selection. :toast:

I stated all this because someone couldn't stand that fact that I knew more then them.

If the OP got the Nvidia, he made a good choice (either one is better then the 7950 for what he is using it for)
If the 7950 could compare in performance, AMD wouldn't be throwing them out the door at such low prices, its not to saturate the market either (they never do that with video cards) they just price their cards based on the performance of the opposition...

PS Why are people posting pics of their houses ?, (seems kind of odd to me), next time there is a post of what CPU to buy I might take a picture of my boat and post it up here.

They should have really closed this thread about 4 pages ago, or take out all the shit that has nothing to do with what the Op asked.

Hmm. Judging from people's feedback on that specific 7950 card, its very unreliable. lots of DOA's and over heating problems from people trying to over clock it and playing games.

It's on rebate, yes, but I don't trust rebates anymore, I tend to just ignore the fact that it has a rebate tag under the price, just because I never get jack from any rebate company. Personally I would just pay the extra $50 for the MSI GTX N760 still... Thanks for trying though.

You should do that. There's really nothing more to add to this thread.

Best of luck.
