As the title states I'm upgrading the GPU on my sig rig. Ideally I want to spend as little as possible but I'm willing to go ~$450.

INFO:
Resolution is natively 1680x1050
I'll be playing BF3 and Skyrim almost exclusively
Ideally would never have a minimum fps below 30 on highest settings.
I have NO brand loyalty. Just tell me what's best.
SLI/CF are options I'm willing to consider
GO!

If you can pick up a cheap 560ti/570 that could work for you. Also, a 6950 might be good too.

Looking at CF/SLi, you could go 460s or 5850s if you wanted. Although I'd stick with a single card solution for now. You can SLi or CF it later.

If you are looking to spend all $450, why not get a Zotac GTX 580?
If you are JUST looking for something that will play at 30+ FPS, you should get a 560ti or a 570

Alright thanks guys.

Ive got a new option I'd like you gents/gals to consider.

I'm considering getting overclocked GTX 560's. Nearly the same performance as a stock 560ti and $50 less per card.

Any potential drawbacks I haven't considered? How would gtx 560's compare to gtx 460's considering they're nearly the same price?

For your price I would suggest a GTX 570. AMD cpu's aren't very good for dual-GPUs. You'll still bottleneck the 570 unless you overclock the CPU.
