    Hmm. Guess i'll hold off too. I get really good scaling by renaming my game file to crysis.exe and using 8.93.

    So are they OK for single cards?

    this did nothing in skyrim, besides adding random green smoke and flashing water..

    the negative scaling only seems to happen in towns, outside I always have 60 fps with or without crossfire, might as well throw one card into the garbage or play frisbee with it

    When are you selling and buying something else? Seems nearly every few days you are just raging about AMD drivers. It's not likely to change soon, so why don't you do yourself a favor and do something about it... Cause your whining is getting really old. Just thinking myself, makes very little sense to keep something you are always complaining about. So do something about it.

    I don't blame you. But just observing by your posts going back almost a few years now, you've got nothing good to say about AMD or their drivers. Either do something or you're a masochist.

    Or sell one since you don't need CF for Skyrim... or BF3... or Rage... or any game released in the last 3 years or probably for the next 2 years.

    He probably bought AMD cards for the same reason a lot of us did, the price. When the 6950s (99% of which unlocked) were fresh they were $300 minimum while the 570s were $350 minimum... a lot of us just bought those and unlocked them to 6970s to match the 570 while saving $50+.

    There were of course other factors, such as the "cheap" $350 570s being from MSI (the company I associate with the lowest quality everything including warranty/RMA) while the AMD alternative came from XFX which has lifetime warranty if registered.

    well some of us are running 3 screens and crossfire is needed just to make games playable.

    Yeah, I threw in an edit. The $350 ones were from MSI, others were more expensive, that was part of the reason I went ahead and got an AMD card, I heavily favour XFX over MSI after seeing their RMA facility first hand (a rotten rat hole in a shack). That and having multiple RMAs IN A ROW being either dead or arrival or dying within minutes. The ones not from MSI at the time started at $380 and went up to outrageous prices.

    The other thing on my mind was the RAM on it is really low, 1.25GB. I figured I'd be better off with a 2GB card considering my resolution is 2048x1152 and I like to crank up settings which eat RAM.

    NEW FEATURES! :banana:

    Sometimes I thank god for having taken my msi 4870x2 oc'd by factory away from me. Not that I'm pleased to waste my money, but that card only worked for 3 years (both 9800 PRO and X800 PRO still work) and it got me frustrated for the excess of driver problems. Game X works with driver X, Game Y works with driver Y... etc. Video with THAT codec/resolution works with THAT driver.

    I'm so sad hear you guys having such problems because I know this **** can drive you mad.

    Exactly the same reasons I went for the 6950: better price, more vram and the chance to unlock it.
    My resolution alternates between 1600x1200 & 2048x1536, plus I figured the extra memory would be needed in another year or two.


    Here's what you'll pay in my area:

    EVGA GTX570 1.2GB GDDR5 $654.35
    Sapphire HD6970 2G GDDR5 $608.35

    Sapphire HD6950 2G GDDR5 $504.85


    Not hard to see which one is best value for money.....:)

    No green smoke or flickering clouds on mine with these, but terrible indoor stuttering when turning remains in 1st person when looking at hdr like lighting from fires/windows/underwater etc. 3rd person is fine, or playing in a window rather than fullscreen.

    SR3 still runs like complete ass, 15-25fps etc
