I think you must be misinformed to think that an HD 7970 isnt futureproof and cant play the latest and future games at over 60FPS on max settings. (nothing is futureproof though, just future-resistant)

*EDIT*
I would however suggest OP waits until the Radeon RX 200 series comes out to see the performance. If anything the 7000 series will drop in price when it comes out.

nowhere in your post did you state the 7970. you said that any card that can run the latest DX is futureproof. I highly doubt the 7970 will be able to play next gen games at 60 FPS on ultra, my gtx 580 didn't even max out BF3 at 60 fps when the card first came out. The only card i have ever owned that has maxed out current and next gen games when i had it was the 5990.

I thought we were both talking about his GPU choice, being the 7970, which does run the latest DX. That is what I thought you meant. Sorry for any confusion wink.gif

A 7970 should be able to eat any game out there at 1080p for at least 2 years

Speaking about the motherboard...looking through the website where I usually buy my components I found the Maximus VI Hero only at 10 euros more than the Z87 Pro..it would be great as I'd need 2 USB 3 headers on board...what do you think?
