So I'm thinking of upgrading!
I'm thinkin' a used 290X I can get $235, or a new GTX 970... as a card I like the 970 more (efficiency being the biggest, and gimmiX being a bonus) but the cheapest is THIS for ~$330. It's hard to justify the added efficiency for $95 more dollars.
What do you all think? I'd similarly go for a 780Ti if I could find one as cheap as these cards but that's not going to happen.
I may try and overclock my 7970 one of these days to see all she's got but I have a feeling this isn't the card to have for 2560x1600 lol
....OR the new contender would be a second 7970/280x in CF (whichever'd be cheaper). Since that seems to be the overwhelming most recommended solution!
GTX 970: 0
R9 290X: 1
Crossfire 7970s: 4
GTX 970: $330-($120-$150)+$12 shipping of sold card=$192-$222
R9 290X: $235-($120-$150 sale price of my card)+$12 shipping of sold card=$97-$127
Crossfire 7970s: $100-$150
