The increase in games would come from the crappy Crossfire support in some games, but with games with great multi-GPU support, the HD 7970s in CF would still be a great rig.
My question should I upgrade my gpu to the r9 380 x 8 gig of RAM or is there a better option also will my cpu hinder performance.
In one corner is the XFX R9 380 DD Black Edition OC 4GB, at factory settings and with an overclock of 1170MHz core and 6.4GHz memory and in the other corner is a GTX 960 with a 1178MHz Boost clock and 7GHz memory.
Today we evaluate a custom R9 380 from XFX, the XFX R9 380 DD BLACK EDITION OC 4GB.
Of course [H]ard|OCP were not going to leave that as is, they hit a 1040MHz core and 6.1GHz memory clock thanks to the custom cooling on the card, although with no way to adjust voltage they felt this card could be capable of more if that feature was added to the card.
It features the latest Ghost Thermal 3.0 cooling technology from XFX and a factory overclock.

Pushing the ASUS STRIX R9 380X DirectCU II OC to the limit

by Jeremy Hellstrom |
After spending some time with the card, [H]ard|OCP determined that the best overclock they could coax out of this particular GPU was 1175MHz and 6.5GHz, so they set about testing the performance at 1440p again.
To make it fair they also overclocked their STRIX GTX 960 OC 4GB to 1527MHz and 8GHz.

i have this, with an overclock of 1100 on the core, can handle the beta of The Division on maximun settings at 1080p around 35-40fps... with the fan at 60% the temps just stay at 61°C... good for me :)
Saw an offer on this, and it ain't too bad.
