i am not saying that is my 7/24 clocks just for reference. the 280Xs or 770s will be about 30% faster with any single highend gpus.

Wouldn't it just be a waste if he's only running it on a single 1080p 60hz monitor ???

Single card is always better. Like said above, I'd grab a 290 or 780. They are both a toss up really. I'd probably vote 290 just because it's newer. The 290x is not worth another $100.

This is what tweeks my interest as i can pick up a pair of 280's with aftermarket cooling for £300 the same with the 770's and get that extra 30% or the same price for a 780 or 290x.

Im one of those people that wants all eye candy at max otherwise whats the point in spending all that money

Disagreed, I had a 7970GE at 1200 core / 1600 mem which is quite a bit faster than that 280x and I run at 1080p. There will still plenty of times where it wasn't enough. Even my overclock'ed 290x now is sometimes 'not enough'.

Then again, I like lots of AA thumb.gif
