    Complete AMD Radeon HD7xxx family specifications, pricing and release dates

    hmmm i wonder if the 7950s will unlock to 7970s this time around. I also feel the 7890 will be a fairly beastly overclocker got the full 32rops but lower shader count i would expect it to scale higher. might become the new price performance king in the entry high end segment

    BF3 build advice

    ID take a 6950 Twin Frozr III PE / OC then overclock the dog snot out of it call it a day, the TFIII comes with a 1.2v VID so you can hit 920-950 core before touching voltages and cooling is top notch that or id grabe a 2560mb GTX 570 and call it a day and overclock that as well.

    Grand Theft Auto 5

    well if GTA V runs better on PC i might consider it but after IV and the issues with that game and with rockstar employees themselves stating the game engine should never have been used on PC in the first place, im gonna wait it out and see how this turns out.
