If Killah Priest want's to use the 13.4 drivers then by all means he can do so....even if its at a performance deficit.

We don't really care if he uses the new drivers or not. . .we're just telling him that it's silly to avoid drivers for the sole fact that they're labeled "beta".

I never said it wasn't silly.

I just don't like downloading them because I get crap speeds downloading from AMD and I don't really like getting drivers from other sources, I get like 10kbps from AMD.

If I thought I'd get a huge increase in performance maybe I'd go for it but as of now I usually only bother when they update the official release.

Now, I don't know whether I want to Crossfire my 7870s or get a 780 like I had planned.

There is literally no difference between beta and "official" drivers except for a WHQL stamp.

In fact, WHQL drivers are usually beta drivers from the previous month, except with a different name.

If that makes your uncomfortable, then that's your loss.

If you were switching to Nvidia, I'm pretty sure two 760s would outperform a 780 and cost over $150 less, and it seems SLI wouldn't be a problem if you were already considering crossfire unless your motherboard does not support it.

well the official drivers are also smaller because the beta drivers include things that are optional with the official releases, its like 100mb difference.

I'd have to get a new mobo to crossfire, too. I cut some corners on this build including a mobo with no crossfire/SLI support. So, that would have to be considered, as well.
