Default Re: Official Radeon 7950 Review and discussion thread

Lee, the motherboard in my sig has 8x PCI-e on the 3rd slot. I bought it to run a 3rd 570 with. I'm not sure if it's Ivy Bridge compatible, though. I saw one newegg reviewer say it was but haven't confirmed anything yet.

I bought mine open box so got it a little cheaper than that. Comes in today, so I'll be testing it soon. HardOCP gave it a good review.

Edit: This one may suit your color scheme better, the Maximus, and it has 8x PCI-e on the 3rd slot as well:

i7-2700k @ 5.0 GHz
Nvidia GeForce 570 2.5GB Tri-SLI
Asus P67 WS Revolution (Tri-SLI)
OCZ Vertex SSD x 4 (Raid 5)
G.Skill 8GB DDR3 @ 1600MHz
PC Power & Cooling 950W PSU
