GRAPHICS CARD TROUBLES!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok so here is the deal, I am an editor/heavy gamer and am having trouble picking the GPU. Here are the specs on the machine

Building at the moment:
CPU: i7 2600k @ 4.4Ghz (OC OF COURSE)
HD: Western Digital 2TB HD 64MB Cache
COOLING: Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H80
MOBO: Asus P8Z68-M PRO Z68
GPU: GTX 600 Series, GTX 580, HD 7970/7950, CF 6870, SLI 570, 560 (I DONT KNOW WHICH ONE!)
RAM: 16GB Geli Ripjaw 1600Mhz
CASE: I will use my old one or get one of the Coolmasters.

This machine is coming to about $1600 AUD. Are there any suggestions that people have about what I can change to get it down to near $1400?

Also, what GPU should I go for? Wait for the 600 series? Go with CF/SLI setup? The new ATI Cards or a 580? Need your help!
