    Yeah looks like good value.
    But I'd recommend the 780

    The Devil 13 is basically 2 7970's fused into a single card, with a combined Passmark score of about 10,200, for $1k.
    You could simply run 2 760's, with a combined Passmark score of about 10,000, for only $500.

    All in all, no, absolutely not worth the price.

    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    Nope. Not even close to good value.

    ​You do realize that the GTX 670 is more powerful and less than half the price right?

    In case you didn't know, we are talking about the Devil 13. Even a 7990 at $799 is poor value especially when SLi 760's will give similar performance at under $600AUD.

    Definitely not worth it. Try looking for two individual cards instead of one card with two GPU's on it. That way nothing will be underclocked.

    Last time I checked the HD 7990 outperforms the GTX 690 by a wee bit, which outperforms the 670 by over two times. Yes it's more expensive, but definitely not less powerful :P

    The 7990 is basically 2 7970's merged into a single card, and with a much larger performance drop compared to a standard SLI Link.

    This card achieves a 3DMark score of about 17k for a cost of $1k.
    ​My old Dual-670 build got over 18k and I only spent about $520 on the cards.

    18k>17k
    $520<$1k
