    Stress test to the limit

    Ive read that running the games in 3d would force the card to use twice as much VRAM, but would likely limit some viewers to noticing minor artifacting.

    If you determine that thermal paste isnt solving your issue, contact the company who mfr'd the card, they might send out replacement fans free of charge.

    Best 1 PCIE Connecter Graphics Card? Help!

    As far as 7790s are concerned, its basically a weaker 7850 to bridge the price point between 7770s and 7850's. the 7790 is a way for lowering the bar on a minimum requirement graphics card, based on the idea that (New releases of..) AMD drivers are making 7000 series cards stronger. With that...

    Disappointed with Apple

    I think when the dust settles and commotion comes to a stand still, Apple is just an overpriced alternative in a nicer box. I just dont know enough people who are serious about apple that can actually convince me to switch

    End of an era. Disney shuts down LucasArts. :(

    Probably better off in different hands anyway. Weird that they grabbed star wars but let lucas arts go. Someone wanna explain that?

    Indie developers rejecting Microsoft

    Well its a step in a direction, whether it was right or wrong, they atleast gave indie a chance. If it was such a brilliant idea, Microsoft wouldn't have let it go. Lets be honest, most indie games just dont suit their target audience.

    Like a cheap upgrade w/o bottleneck

    Are you opposed to AMD? you could get a great deal on 6950's... heres why. 5870/5970s are over priced because of bitcoin mining, 6970s are overpriced because they are the "best" in the 6000 series, and 7000 series are expensive because they are new... pound for pound the 6950 is the best bang...

    Pick a card

    I dont think there will be a shortage of 7970s from other manufacturers either, why not get an xfx? they have lifetime warranty, or sapphire? you could get 2 7850's too, that would run eyefinity on hdmi like a boss. Used 6870's are 120$? 2 of those would rock anything as well. Ebay
