cfx 7970 or gtx 680 or gtx 670

so im going to buy a new gpu for gaming an video editing. bf3 i would like minimum 70fps so i have 10 frames to drop from recording or what ever and i will still get 60 fps. i want to run BF4 on ultra 60+ fps aswell when it comes out so i want to futureproof this decision. my cpu is a phenom ii x6 1090t OC at 4.2ghz with corsair h40 liquid cooler. 16gb of vengeance ram. 750 watt psu. i dont really want to go as far as buying a titan or 690 and money isnt the problem.

i would really like to get 2 gpus now or in the future and i am in the process of transferring the money to paypal for 2 radeon 7970's by HIS. are they good cards or not (like is HIS any good or should i steer away from HIS? comes with bioshock and crysis 3 so its a decent deal)

i was originally transfering the money for the gtx 680 from evga super clocked (not the signature card) which was gonna cost $630 including shipping but i pay an extra 150 and get another 7970. WHAT DO I DO???. i keep re considering my choice! i need help with this because its alot of money.

gtx 670 from galaxy is the same price as the 7970 from HIS sooooo should i get a two 670's or two 7970's because they are the same price?

I would love if someone could tell me the fps in for these games completely maxed out not customized BF3, FC3, Crysis 3, and maybe arma 2 for 7970 cfx and single, fps for 670 sli and single and a 680 sli and single.

i currently have a 7870 from powercolor and i get 45 - 50 fps but it gets as low as 30 fps on bf3. far cry 3 gets 16fps completely maxed out so i would like to get 60+ fps on far cry 3 maxed out completely aswell. crysis 3 i would also like 60+ fps.

  1. If you don't use v-sync or FPS limiter, crossfire currently has some problems. And using a FPS limiter kind of takes away some of the crossfire advantage. So I'd go 670, unless you always use v-sync anyways.

    v-sync lowers the frame rate to the refresh rate on the monitor. i will never use it. it is pointless and you don't get anything out of the card. i record my games so i need as many fps as i can get.

    In that case it is clear you'd be best off with SLI atm.
