    For the 2500K/2600K users out there, what price for a 7700K would make you upgrade?

    I think insane DDR4 prices are holding up the entire upgrade lifecycle. Lower prices by 50% and I think a lot of people will upgrade .. Then prices on old sandy/ivy/x99 systems will drop like a rock on ebay making everyone happy

    Dual cards to single card - help?

    FYI, none of the 7xxx cards work with hackintosh currently your best bet is a 6xx card from nvidia or I think the 6850 will work with hackintosh, but the crossfire will be disabled. and you'll just see 2 separate cards.
