Radeon HD 7970 OC Sapphire Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon HD 7970 OC Sapphire Edition is a special Edition of the Radeon HD 7970. See the page of the standard edition for more information.
The new features include increases in the core and memory clocks that went from 925MHz to 950MHz and from 1375MHz to 1425MHz, respectively. However, Sapphire claims that the user can OC it even more at home to a core-clock of 1000MHz and a memory-clock of 1450MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 3% performance boost when compared to the standard Radeon HD 7970.
Therefore, all games, including very demanding ones, should be fully playable at max settings and with very attractive resolutions.

You can't do that with an Nvidia card unless it is also an Nvidia card. Unless your GPU is also an AMD card with SLI/Crossfire capabilities then you can crossfire it.

I have been using this card for around 6 months now. I haven't OC'd it and wish for guidance to taking full advantage of my card. Should I use the AMD CCC, Sapphire Trixxx, MSI Afterburner something else? What levels do I shoot for? Thanks!

I think it's the wrong way, 500w and 40a for psu and it consumes 230w
