    Quote from Wolley74

    If the 7770 is worse then a 6770, i wouldn't go with a 7750, you should be able to pick up a 6770 for maybe $100-$110


    Since when is the 6770 better than the 7770? It makes no sense that AMD would release less powerful Gpu-s in newer and equivalent series.

    I am actually surprised that my hdd has been in "on" state for this long.
    It's amazing how time flies.

    Considering the subject matter, and that this is a thread about extreme overclocking..... I'll allow it.

    Once and only once, in this certain specific situation.


    Thanks man, I appreciate that.

    Quote from fm87

    The only reason I say so is because the voltages are in the negative, which I'm pretty sure is impossible. :P


    They exist. -5v rail is used to power isa bus slots and -12v rail is used to power some lan circuits but these are not used by 99,9 of consumers(who the **** uses ISA?)

    When you create the second point for the line keep holding the mouse button and drag the cursor to curve the line.I think that's what you're asking.

    Quote from fm87

    Errrr.... Single cards don't stutter.

    The stuttering is from the two graphics cards/GPUs being out of sync ever so slightly.


    Yea, I used a wrong term there but the point is they don't get perfect frame times either.
    I wanted to say that microstuttering is non-existent on Kepler SLI setups so far.Unless those benchmarks are wrong of course.

    Elaborate


    It means that gtx690 and gtx680sli cause LESS stutter than single cards (and that isn't the case with older dual gpu-s gtx590, radeon6990).
    When a gpu renders frames it tries to display every frame the same amount of time which means that some frames last more/less than others (and those times are measured in miliseconds). With every gpu there is a small inconsistency in frame times but in most of the cases that is unnoticeable by the human eye.But when two gpu work one gpu will render even frames(2,4,6...) and the other one will render odd ones(1,3,5...). And of course the gpus are not usually in sync and the difference in frame times becomes very large which directly affects the performance of the animations you are seeing on the screen.That is called microstuttering.

    The benchmark I posted basically shows how much time the gpu spent rendering frames that would equate to less than 20 fps(test is 50ms and a second is 1000ms, so 1000/50=20, therefore if each frame is rendered in 50ms that will mean that the screen would show solid 20fps) which means that you immediately notice a difference in speed and performance of your game.Since time spent rendering those frames on gtx690 and 680sli is really low, that you could say it's irrelevant means that microstuttering isn't a problem with these two setups.

    If anyone finds something wrong in my statement please feel free to correct but with solid proof.Ignorance isn't gonna do good for any of us.

    Exactly! Honestly, when you say that micro-stuttering isn't an issue, you don't know anything of what you're talking about. Micro-stuttering is when your two GPUs (either in 2 cards or combined in 1), can't sync together. Thus, they will have problems generating newer areas, and dip your framerates to be lower than a single one of those cards. Say I have 2x 680s, then I come into micro-stuttering while playing BF3 at 100fps. This will cause me to have around 40fps and having issues with the color and hue and the newer generated area. So pretty you said that you wouldn't mind paying over 1000$ on 2 cards, that will eventually run 20% worse than the original single card.


    Are you so sure?
    Do you have any proof?
