worder if 7970 or 680 is better for this one...

Belgium Massman says:

Hasn't Nvidia been top choice for any new 3DMark release? :D

Moldova ZL1 says:

must be Z77 board ? thats unfair :(

Netherlands rsnubje says:

Always dislike this kind of competitions.
Why would I use an MSI Z77 Mpower to win a board that's only $20 more in value? And next to that, why would I want to win an MSI product by using MSI products as I already have them. Imo it should be more like a promotion so if you have for example a Gigabyte board, you win an MSI board so you hopefuly will use that in future tests.

Moldova ZL1 says:

agree, or at least say any MSI.. I can understand that, but no .. only if you you already bought the newest can you compete ??? ... MEH !
