Yes. Although I am not sure why people need Xfire 7970, unless running extreme resolutions. I am running 2560x1600. BF3, Oblivion, STALKER Pripyat, completely maxed out, all Ultra. Great FPS in all games.

A better buy for you would be 1 7970 and a newer SSD or 2000+Mhz DDR3.

What voltage you guys need for 1200mhz? Mine can do 1190mhz with 1.21v but it won't do 1200mhz no matter the voltage.

Mine does 1200 at 1.175! But 1176 on core and 1600 mem was optimal!
