They will though unless you get the 4GB version of the GTX 680 your likely gonna get less performance than the 7970.

Disappointing, Nvidia cards are very nice but overly pricey at 4GB.

Oh yeah thanks for pointing that out, i meant hd 7970 and not hd 7870
and as for 1440p yes gtx 680 and hd 7970 will hold good but only for the time being, they are not future proof enough at that reso !
So its better if you wait for next gen GPUs to be out or go for GTX 670 SLI , if this is beyond your budget then HD 7950 3GB Ghz and Flex edition CFX is the way to go smile.gif

I'm kind of leaning towards a 7970, the 8000 series looks to be a repackage of the current 7000 series and both the 8000 and 800GTX series are to be honest to far away to consider. While the new nvidia cards are rumored to come end of February, by the time i can actually get my hands on one my new build we be covered in dust. frown.gif

These are the cards I'm looking at getting

Gigabyte Radeon HD7970 Overclocked 3GB
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=193_1309&products_id=19269

Solid all-rounder, cheaper, overclocks well, good cooling but have heard it's a loud card. frown.gif

Sapphire Radeon HD7970 3GB OC Edition with Boost
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=193_1309&products_id=21322

Mixed reviews whether it's a good overclocker or not, about all i know.

ASUS Radeon HD7970 DirectCU II 3GB
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=193_1309&products_id=19728

Quite, cool, sexy but may get a bit cosy in my case as it is 3-slot card.

Honestly I'd suggest a 7970 or even two of them. I guess if you're getting two, get two 7950's and save ~$100 to get similar performance. 2GB isn't really enough for 1440p and it will struggle in the future, the 4GB nVidia cards are a joke too, in general they don't clock as well and generally cost at least $100 more.

I really like the Asus DCU2 and with that cooling on it you should be able to OC as high as the other cards. thumb.gif

I would suggest you to take HD 7970 from MSI or Saphire , because recently asus doesn't seem to be its old self, too many rma requests and still too many complaints and gigabyte is fine but not the best when it comes to GPUs !
