Thanks for that.

No worries

By all means aim higher etc, but only when it's worth it to spend the $$$$.

On that note I would start getting into these demanding games first and then before you know it you'll be 'needing' not wanting to upgrade as games like BF3 and crysis 2 require a lot of power for surround etc but if you stay at one monitor 1080/1200, with 2 cards like the 560ti you should be able to max out anything. Only when you have the $$$ upgrade to a higher res moniter like 1440 or 1600 and maybe even surround in which you will certainly want to upgrade the GPU's, but remember like you said baby steps lol

EDIT:

I sooooo want to do surround, however at this minute I have no reason to upgrade, at 1080p I can almost play anything (havn't tried BF3 yet). If I have some extra cash, sure I would like to get a few monitor's but I would have to save up quite a bit before I commit myself to something like that because with the mopnitor's comes the beefier GPU's and that's obviously dependant on what games you play, at what res and how much eye candy you're after.
