Hi Mike,


I don't really require any of the other features. I just want to get an up
to date ATI card to help with RC 5 and other projects. :) I currently get
around  or 524.33 M keys/sec for RC 5 with my GTX 660 TI.

Hi Jarod,


The 7970 has 2048 Stream Processors, so it would be super at RC5. Our speeds
database has two entries for this card, one showing 3 Gk/sec and the other
showing 3.6 Gk/sec.


The more important question is:- how much do you need the other features? :)


Kind regards,

Hi all


I have been thinking about getting an ATI card for some time now mainly to
help RC 5 out plus a few other projects. I'm thinking about getting a
Sapphire HD 7970 Vapor-X for $436.92 New Zealand to get it at this price I
need to order it on the morning of the 26th New Zealand time or the 25th US
time. Are these a good option? I will be running it on a PCIE 2.0 slot
alongside a GTX 660 TI on a gigabyte GAUDR3  rev 1 motherboard. Please find
link to stats sheet.
