You can get a 7970 for that price, and just no to the 660ti.

You can get a GTX 670 for $400.

There's quite a few choices.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007709%20600030348%20600315498%20600311820&IsNodeId=1&name=GeForce%20GTX%20670

Also, like the above poster said. You can also get a 7970 for that price.

Truthfully? 7950 all the way. And this is coming from someone with a passion for Nvidia cards.

he could get a 7970 but he can put that 80-100 bucks left over for another 7950 in the future if he were to purchase a 7950. to give a bit more horsepower for the multi monitors smile.gif

7950 for that resolution, Nvidia has been lacking in the high resolution department as of late.
post #9 of 56
then 7950 will be best choice smile.gif and do what i mentioned and put away the left over for another 7950 in the future since 7950 for 300 usd which i think is around 299 in canadian dollars but could drop in price next year redface.gif
