sli 760s
sli 670s (not reconmemded)
gtx 780 (solid singe gpu)
cfx 7950s
cfx used 7970s

all of those are good choices, I would only sli 670's if you already have one now, as the 700 series are out.

I think I can live with the 7970's. I may overclock them but as long as I get smooth graphics with modern games then its alright for me.

I think its a good choice. My 7970 is 19 months old and through driver updates and its high bandwidth and vram it keeps on doing very well with games. Its a good card. I think you'll like it.

OP for 1080p a single HD 7950 is more than enough. overclock it to 1100 - 1125 mhz and match a HD 7970 Ghz. sapphire HD 7950 for USD 261 (241 after mail in rebate) after applying 10% off w/ promo code EMCXMXV55, ends 8/8 .

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202026

here is HD 7950 OC(1150 mhz) perf comparison.

http://www.hardocp.com/article/2013/07/02/msi_n760_tf_2gd5oc_gtx_760_overclocking_review/5

you can easily max latest games at 1080p and run at 45+ fps. even at 1440p you can run at max settings in latest games , but without msaa.

Just an update:

I got a 7970 on a good deal on ebay. All the games ive tried on it are running between 40-55 fps on max setting (no AA). Im happy with this and this card looks to be holding up nicely. Then next step is to overclock. But that will be when i get board.

thanks guys
