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".

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

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.


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.

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.
