Why not compromise and get the MSI 660ti power edition? It is easily one of the best 660ti cards.

wow thats a powerful rig . I would recommend a HD 7950. fits within your budget. here is the sapphire HD 7950 950 mhz edition. AUD 329. model no 11196-10-40G. uses a HD 7970 PCB . excellent dual x cooler. built for overclocking. can easily do 1150 mhz with a bit of voltage tweaking. will match a HD 7970 Ghz (1050 mhz) at those speeds.

No reason to go Nvidia. AMD offers by far the best cards right now.

i think i made a mistake. pccasegear lists a different model no. for that sapphire card. the link i gave seems to be the sapphire HD 7950 boost. 850 mhz core clocks with 925 mhz boost . stock voltage of 1.2 - 1.25v. overclocks to 1150 mhz easily. 2 year warranty.

http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/product/?cid=1&gid=3&sgid=1157&pid=1713&psn=&lid=1&leg=0

another option is gigabyte HD 7950 . 900 mhz clocks. excellent windforce3x cooler. AUD 329. 3 year warranty.

another good model is PCS+ HD 7950 Boost. 900 mhz core clocks with 950 mhz boost. AUD 299. very good cooler. 2 year warranty.
