Unless you are deadset on Nvidia, get 7970's. I have had a 680 since launch but with the updated drivers, overclocking capabilities and cheap price I seriously regret not getting a 7970. With plans to do a custom loop, the 7970's will benefit much more.

If you must have Nvidia then get EVGA 670 4GB FTW if you can find them. They are built onto the 680 pcb so they are able to take more power and overclock better. Also, the performance relative to the 680's is almost exactly the same.

Well I have looked into the 670 FTW and I must say they seem like a good choice, because of the VRAM for one which I may need. The price is about $80 less for two of them with is also a plus. I am just not too sure about the exact performance I don't really plan to overclock the GPU. I'll need some convincing, but when the time come I'll buy the right thing thumb.gif

This is a chart comparing my current CPU(FX-4100) to future CPU(i7 3770K), as well as current GPU to Future GPU (680) and the 670 because It is a contender. I don't quite know how the GPU chart will reflect with the 670s/680s in SLI would they double?

SLI usually doesn't scale perfectly so you wont get exactly double, just a little less.

Thanks for answering my question smile.gif I am not really familiar to SLI as I've never done it even when I had the chance to when building computers for people. I haven't had the time to build me a nice computer so I figured its about time haha

I'm not that enamored to the 900d, I don't think it's worth the price tag, so I voted for the switch.

If you're getting 3 monitors then I'd say go the 7970's or try and get a couple of cheaper 680's, the 4gb 670's are unable to use the extra 2gb effectively :

Overall if I had the cash to spend on an SLI or Crossfire setup I'd get something like these 2gb 680's: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814134154

The EVGA 670 FTW edition cards are the 670 GPU on the 680's pcb with the 680's power delivery so as a quick comparison a 680 or reference 670 will go to 132% power consumption max when overclocked, the 670 FTW will go to 145% when overclocked. This allows for it to reach higher speeds naturally and if you water cool it, it will maintain those higher speeds as it won't need to throttle due to rising temps.
