$1000 budget for GPU help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Currently I game just fine on high/almost ultra or extreme graphic settings with a 6970 on a ZR30W 2560x1600 screen.

The 6970 is borrowed off a friend who uses 16 x16x 8x motherboard and did not see much of a difference.

i7 2700k Asus maximus extreme Z 16/16/8. not currently overclocked.

I am seeing the card struggle as low as 12-20fps in some games and wanting better

I have a AX1200 coming in to power the cards. Currently also borrowing TX650 corsair to use.

I can obtain a pair of used GTX 580 3gb for $650 or $325 each card. And am able to find a third for a bit more.

Looking at upgrading around July-aug.

Would a 680 SLI or 7970 SLI be much better than 3 gtx 580 3gb?

or just 2x gtx 580 3gb already be best bang for buck situation?

A Pair of 680's is what you really want isnt it? You dont have to wait anymore except to afford them, so they will be the best scenario for you.
