    I will upload the excel spread sheets of the avg, max and min fps when I get home and link them to the tread.

    It's the msi gtx770 gaming edition and an Asus HD7970 dc2 top.

    Re: GIGABYTE GTX760 - 2GB - Rebel Tech

    The HD7970 is architecturally outdated now, there is no more blood to be squeezed out of that stone so AMD will have no choice to respond with a new GPU line up now. While Nvidia is just refreshing, the 15-20% refinement gains have left AMD needing to respond with either Sea Islands as expected as Volcanic Islands is still 8 months away at least. Its a bit of a crappy market nvidia have created by doing this. The GTX700 family is not a new arch and Maxwell is only out in Q3-4 2014 while AMD were hoping to roll out to Volcanic Islands but this release has done nothing for the consumer market. AMD are going to have little time between releases and I don't know how this will make any buyer happy.

    @Oj0 I'll term mainstream as majority market for gamers, people that cannot afford highest end parts and the GTX760 is very much mainstream while the 780 represents high end. Premiums well you are paying R4.5K on what is essentially mainstream in this regard. I am assuming if AMD released Sea Islands tomorrow and they balanced themselves out then the price may change a bit.

    Re: GeForce GTX 760 vs GTX 770 vs Radeon HD 7970

    Anyone could have predicted that. For one, thanks to inflation in the USA, $100 in 2003 is $126.60 today. That's more than a 25 % increase already. Don't forget our local inflation, just look at petrol. In 2003, petrol was around R4.00 per liter, it has tripled since. That means local delivery charges have tripled. It has nothing to do with anyone being greedy, it's just basic economics.

    When the GeForce 6800 Ultra launched in early 2004, it commanded a $999 price tag - the same figure claimed by the likes of the GeForce GTX 690, GeForce GTX Titan and Radeon HD 7990. However, $999 back in early 2004 is a little over $1200 today. If anything, graphics cards are getting cheaper. Just like nothing stopped you from using a GeForce FX 5500 or Radeon 9500 when the 6800 Ultra came out, nothing is stopping you from using a GeForce GTX 550 Ti or Radeon 6850 today. As with back then, you can still play almost everything - you just can't max it out.

    Must say I never even heard of PNY before getting my GTX680 and must admit I am more than happy so far with it.
    Christie do you know if the specs of the PNY xl8 enthusiast edition cards differ from the stock reference cards?

    You can share it via drop box, just make sure the folder you put it in is public. Otherwise post a screenshot.
