You choose to do three way crossfire when EVERYONE on this board told you "DO NOT DO IT".

You then spent months making up BS stats/rumors to justify your purchase and now this is the 2nd or 3rd thread you've made complaining about crossfire...... (it should be REALLY obvious as to why people can't stand you).

This.

Get rid of those GPUs, get yourself GTX780Ti in SLI or 3Way or even 4Way SLI :)

I am not even sure if the 780 Ti in SLI delivers that much. And you will want more than 3GB of memory, unless you change GPU every year.

Rofl. I was going to post my bad experiences with crossfiring two 6950s but now all I can do is laugh. TC, you deserved everything you just got. I just wish I could see how hilarious the previous comments were.

OC'd 780 TI is roughly on par with 690.

Should I jsut get 780 sli? or 3gb ram would be a bottleneck in the future? I want to keep my budget under $1200.

lol and yet you complain about Crossfire..... those dual gpu cards are crossfired gpu's and AMD tends drop support on dual gpu quicker then single gpu cards.

The R series gpus are better, and frametime issues are fixed. Cant believe Im maxinng out most games at 1600p with just one 7970!! And I am actually playing better even though im getting less fps., Amd broke crossfire on 7000 series cards with their latest drivers.

The R9 280X and the R9 270X are the exact same cards from Radeon HD 7000 series just rebranded and tweaked . Again going by their past AMD drop the ball on dual gpu cards as new gpu lines come out.

as long as you stay at 1440p or lower that 3gb wont be an issue.

I don't know I have a 7990 and get 60fps or more on all games. Not sure about 1600p though.
