    This may be short lived but thanks for keeping it warm for me.  Really impressed about your overclock settings!!  BTW, taking that spot back.

    970 SLI is better performance wise, but I always prefer a single powerful GPU over 2 lesser ones.

    Not enough load I guess, Core was 1470MHz this time.
     

     
    Is there a way to test 1440P Valley without owning a 1440P Monitor?

    I told you I would come back with a Titan or 980Ti, finally got rid of that 280X.
    Been waiting for this since September.

     
    GPU was running at constant 1507MHz btw, according to Afterburner.
    78.7 ASIC Quality.

    Depends on the seller, no one can safely say that it's safe or not. You might get scammed and be sad [ =( ] or be happy [ =) ] that you saved 200USD on a perfectly working GPU.
     
    Think of it this way; What will you do with your 280 when you buy a new GPU? Not gonna throw it into trash I suppose, most likely sell it, and there is a lot of people like you.

    Poll options could be better I guess, it seems like you have to answer the same question 3-4 times. Maybe you thought that as a safety mechanism but when you check it, it doesn't actually add up.

    Little Tweaks I do suggest for scoring higher in valley
     
    Nvidia:
    1) Right click on your desktop to bring up the NVIDIA control panel, and click on “Manage 3D Settings.” Click the Program Settings tab, then the drop down box to choose Valley. If you don’t see it you can click the Add button for Unigine Engine, or Browse for Valley.exe which is in C>Program files (x86)>Unigine>Valley>bin. Change the following four items, then click Apply.
    >Muti-display/mixed-GPU acceleration change to Single display performance mode
    >Power management mode change to Prefer maximum performance
    >Texture filtering – Quality change to High performance
    >Vertical sync changed to off
    2) Now click on “Adjust image settings with preview” in the control panel. Click the “Use my preference emphasizing:” button and change the slider to Performance, then click Apply.
    3) Have only one monitor plugged into your card(s).
    4) Overclock your chip as much as you can with reasonable stability.
    5) Overclock your card’s memory as much as possible, Valley likes high memory clocks, then overclock your card’s core as much as possible.
    6) Change your desktop theme to Windows Classic.
    7) Shut down all other programs, and do not have any monitoring software running.
    8) You need to keep your card from throttling. Many cards have a thermal throttle point, such as 70c, where they downclock. If you are not underwater then open up your case, use a floor fan blowing on your cards, run Valley at the coldest part of the day, or anything else you can do to keep all your gpus under their throttle point. Some cards will allow a greater oc if they are colder as well.
    9) Hit ENTER to scroll through the first few seconds of each of Valley’s 18 scenes before hitting F9 to start the benchmark.
     
     AMD:
     
    Open Catalyst Control Center
    Gaming (tab)
    3D Applications Settings
    Press Add
    Go to C://Programs files (x86)// Unigine // Valley // bin // valley.exe
     
    Under Anti-Aliasing: you don't change anything
     
    Under Texture Filtering:
    Set Anisotropic Filtering Mode:Override Application Settings
    Set Anisotropic Filtering Level: 2x
    Set Texture Filtering Quality: Perfomance
    Set Surface Format Optimizations : Off
     
    Only for multi-gpu:
    For crossfire the default profile is working fine. But you can force 1x1 optimization or AFR friendly if you believe that you will achieve a higher score.
    For tri-fire or quad you NEED to force 1x1 optimization to have a good usage across the cards.
     
    Tab : Performance
    Go to AMD overdrive and disable it. For benching you should use MSI AB or Trixx
     
     
    Windows Tweaks:
    Disable AERO.
    Right click on the desktop
    Personalize
    Basic and High Contrast Themes and choose Windows 7 Basic
     
    Set priority of valley.exe
    Open valley and while you are on the launcher do this.Right click on the taskbar
    Start Task Manager
    Processes
    Find valley.exe
    Right click
    Set priority and choose Real Time
     
    Turn off UAC.
    Its just useless
     
    Disable indexing on C: Drive .
    Right click on your C
    Properties
    Untick ''Allow files on this driver to have contents indexed in addition to file properties''
    Apply changes to drive C:/,subfolders and files (you should install valley on your ssd if you search the optimal performance)
     
    Terminate explorer.exe
    Open task manager
    Find explorer.exe
    Right click End process

    rockmassif got a reaction from holytoledo in Why does EVERY AMD thread become a bluegreen vs red war?   
    If we're talking about GPUs, I don't think there is a huge difference between AMD and NVIDIA. Both R9 200 and GTX 700 series were good. I first bought 2GB GTX 770 but then I needed more VRAM and couldn't find a 4GB version of 770 so I traded my GPU with a 280X. I pretty much get the same performance in games, which is fine by me, and I have more VRAM just like I wanted. Yes, CCC makes me crazy from time to time. But I honestly I'm not unhappy that I use an AMD GPU.
     
    But if we're talking about CPUs I think Intel is one step ahead. I don't think that FX 8320-50 is a bad CPU it's just that it runs hotter and draws much more power and it's not that great on older games that doesn't really utilize more cores. I think these CPUs are in the same category with i5s and I don't think that AMD has managed to come with an answer to i7 at all.
     
    This is just my honest opinion, if I had only 1000USD for a PC I would consider an AMD CPU, if I had more like 2K or 3K I would definitely go for Intel. This is just how it is for me. If I had more money, even though it's ridiculously overpriced I would still buy something like 5960X. If AMD had something on that price range I would consider that too. I don't choose brands.

    rockmassif reacted to mr moose in Why would you purchase AMD over Nvidia?   
    Why?  just why?  There is no intrinsic or universal reason to choose one company over the other,  time of purchase, country of purchase and budget play a bigger role than any brand specific issues.
     
    So unless all of a sudden one company starts producing absolute shit (breaks down all the time and drivers crash mid game every half an hour) then all you need is a budget and minimum requirements,  get the card that meets your requirements the closest and that you can afford.  End of story, you don't need to worry if its red or green anymore. Drivers are hardly an issue, power draw is not going to be that much higher that you'll have to change PSU's and the end result will, in all honesty, not be notably different.
     
    I recommend AMD more than nividia, I am still using a fermi,  my next card will probably be either the 290x or the 970 (it'll be next year so no idea which will be cheaper).
