So does that mean that Hayden released an update for his Skyrim fix?

went from 499-539 CAD to 550-599CAD

CAD>USD so fail

I won't be buying anything from team green or team red until prices drop

pricing is up pretty much across the board on 7970's as well, to be fair.

It was an issue with the installed game. I just did an integrity check on all the files and that fixed it.

I'm thinking on picking up Skyrim, how does it look and run maxed out with AA ?

Skyrim plays really well with the 680's. You'll need a couple of mods to make it look really nice though.
