I really want a 7970, but cant justify it + a full cover block right now for this reason.
I'm sure 60fps low on BF3 would be awesome, but to drop $500+ on it isn't in the cards right now.
I feel like 5870 is like 8800gtx in it's longevity.
So from what I can tell (one 7970)>(5870 xfire)?
I5-2500K @ 4.5ghz 1.296v w/ Noctura NH-U14S
8GB CORSAIR Vengeance 1600 cas7
