How would a gtx 690 be overkill for a 120hz monitor @ 1080p?

I don't think a gtx 690 can max BF3 caspian border on ALL ultra settings including 4x msaa @ 120fps.

Given I have AA and AF turned down but my 560ti's average ~90-110fps in BF3 multiplayer so I would hope that a 690 could do a lot more than that.

I do not think it would be overkill for a single 120hz display. My question to you is, why not get another 580? This should take care of what you want, and you can get them for probably 400ish? I know I have seen some used ones on here in the 300 range. While the 690 is a single card, it is still 2 GPUs on a single board, so you arent getting out of the SLI problem.

expect that 2 680>2 580s

I would SLI. You can find DCII 580's for around $300-$325.

The 690 will over kill for the next 2 maybe 3 years at most. Then it'll work it's way down the list like the 8800 GT and 560 Ti GTX when you looking at games like Battlefield 3.

So when Battlefield 4 comes out (which I guess 3-4 years from now) the 560Ti will be the minimum graphics card requirement and the 780 GTX as the recommended tongue.gif
