If you're dead set on the AMD CPU, it's better to get AMD GPUs. I'd go with 6870 crossfire.

Just get a Single GTX580.

That way you can SLI in future if you need more POWER!

i already have the AMD CPU and i will only use AMD anyway.

i have been reading the last hour and been watching AMD's Videos about that it is more beneficial to use AMD CPU/GPU,

just not sure what to do though, since my friend has 2 5770 XXX's in Crossfire and he has some good FPS rates.

i mean as i have previously stated i only really play a handful of games, which are fallout 3/new vegas and batman arkham asylum in which i can currently play at 100+ fps with my Sig Rig, so im thinking i dont need to be going overboard...

but then its the whole future proof aspect i guess...

I have a question that it seems like some of you could answer for me.
I have an AMD Phenom II X4 955 at stock 3.2 Ghz and one GTX 470 Superclocked edition from EVGA. I have a ASUS M4N82 Deluxe mobo. I am looking into getting a second GTX 470.
I was wondering if my CPU will be too much of a bottleneck for two of those cards or if it will actually make a substantial difference?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry if this isn't the right place for the question, it just seemed like you guys know what you're talking about

take it you have a big psu? have to think about that before anything else.

my friend tried 2 and it was a difference for the good, but then tried 3 and was a disaster, i guess it all depends on if you have the money to spend, couldnt you sell your card and get a 580? i guess everyone has their own opinion though, i mean look at me, still running sli'd 9800's lol

I only have a 750W psu but I would be getting it around Christmas along with a 1000W psu so that wouldn't be a problem.
I'd rather not try selling the card I have now. It is a great card and a second EVGA superclocked edition would only be around $270 more.
Did you friend have the same cpu as me or at least very similar?
Lastly, would one GTX 580 be faster than 2 GTX 470's factory OC'ed? If it is close or just under I might do that because then I would save money by not having to get a new psu. NVIDIA's site says the GTX 580 only requires a 600W psu and my current is 700W.
Thanks for the help

well personally i would say the SLI'd 470's would be better however some people would say a single card solution is better, but i always find SLI better, 1 of my 9800GT's will run say fallout 3 at 60fps but when SLI is enabled i will/can surpass 100fps, i dont think my friend had OC'ed 470's but they were 470's so not a huge difference i expect. whilst writing this i have just been reading some comments and forums on here and elsewhere suggesting GTX 470's/480's are better than a single 580, but i would also say also it depends on what games/apps your using, not all games/apps have great SLI support, any game i have played seems to be fine with SLI but just letting you know, if your gonna get a new power supply anyway personally i would get another 470 and SLI.

I would really prefer not upgrading my power supply because it would cost a decent amount more for a nice psu for GTX 470 SLI. I have pretty much decided that if I upgrade my video card it is going to be to a GTX 580.
However, I can't find many things showing a comparison of the GTX 470 to GTX 580 with a cpu similar to mine. I have the Phenom II X4 955 at the stock 3.2 Ghz.
So I have two questions, how much of a difference would a see switching from my single GTX 470 to a GTX 580?
My second question is, how much of a difference would I see if I switched from my GTX 470 to a GTX 480 if I wanted to save some money?
Thanks again for all the help.

well there are posts on here from people who upgraded from the 480 to 580 and said they were dissapointed, i cant speak for them or add any comment to that since i have not owned either, but generally speaking the higher series = better performance and i guess at least if you buy the 580 it will be ready for any new upcoming games/apps, as far as upgrading to the 480 from the 470 i cant see it being a difference worth the money unless you could find a second hand one, may as well just jump straight to the 580 then in the future when you have more money and when the prices come down then you could buy your new power supply and then eventually buy another 580 which would =
