WHat graphics card to get?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking of selling off my iPad 2 and GTX 570 and getting either a GTX 580 or a HD 7950.

While i could get the HD 7970 i only have a 1680X1050 monitor. or i could get a HD 7950 + a 1080P monitor and sell off my current monitor?

Or you can wait until Kepler arrives in 2-5 months and beat the 7950 BIG TIME.

7950 + 1080P monitor.

7950OC Edition from Sapphire was matching a 580 OC. Then they overclocked the 7950 further and demolished it.

I have the same feeling about kepler as i do with bulldozer.

I'm thinking 7950 + 1080P LCD

But my ipad 2 + GTX 570 is easily $650 right there.
