Looking to replace my evga285 sli with a single card of equal performance or better to play direct X 11 games.
Does anyone have any good suggestions that would work with my system?

  1. A budget would be helpful?
    Monitor resolution?
  2. I think a single gtx 660 would be about the same performance. I'm still searching around though.

    Hello STaTic92,

    I recommend looking at Nvdia's GTX 670, 680 and also AMD's 6950 and 6970.

    Edit: Your power supply will be able to handle any of these cards with ease. However, if you plan to SLI/Xfire the higher models, you may need to upgrade your PSU.

    In that case, the HD7950 or HD7870 LE/XT versions are really the best options.
  6. I was really looking at the 7870 LE/XT. I think I will go with that as the prices with the rebates are pretty good.
    Thanks for the help!!
  7. Good. Sapphire and PowerColor have great versions. But I trust Sapphire much more.
