Money definitely does not grow on trees here, but I am still curious what is the very best bang you can get for a single card configuration? And would that single card be able to do ultra settings at 120 FPS?

I would be quite difficult to get 120fps on Ultra settings with a single card for a 1440p monitor or more.
Best bang for buck single card solution in my opinion would be a HD7970.
Basically the more monitors and higher resolution you have the more GPU processing power you need

For someone else a console is fine. Its quite different to say dont buy 3 cards because its not worth it or i am fine with my 1680x1050 res monitor so i dont see a reason for you to buy a 1440p than to say if you dont have the cash buy something slower.

tl;dr; Be respectful for the choices of others. Maybe for you its not worth it but for someone else is worth it.

I am sorry If I happened to upset anybody, it was not my intention. I understand that everybody has different choices a single monitor may be fine for me but not for others. I wanted to say that it doesn't matter what your ideal setup is money can still be a limiting factor for some people

That was my opinion and that was all it was. I'm not expecting that other people agree with me on my own monitor preferences

Guys, guys, calm down.

The EK FC7970 waterblock fits the Sapphire Dual-X 7970. We even have a thread for it here http://www.overclock.net/t/1279174/sapphire-7970-oc-ek-fc7970-water-block-installation-guide-video

So with that in mind, my recommendation is the Dual-X rather than the Vapor-X 7970.

The new dual-x have the same pcb as vapor-x. So no. Now if you can find the old one then its all good

Shoot, my bad. And I do agree, the Vapor-X pcb seems to have bad water cooling support.

It's nice, I guess, but for that price you could just buy another 7970 + block and outperform a single Titan anyways /shrug.

Well, it would take 2x 7970s to outperform a Titan. You can buy waterblocks at liquid cooling sites like frozen cpu:
http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l3/g30/c309/s1590/list/p1/Liquid_Cooling-Water_Blocks_VGA_-_Card_-_ATI-HD_7970_Water_Blocks-Page1.html

However you would need to know what PCB you're looking for on a 7970 and what block to use. If you have questions I would make a new thread in this forum or the watercooling section of OCN.

If you want hassle free watercooling then it'd probably be better to get an EVGA card (titan) with the block already attached.
