  1. I would say go with two AMD Radeon 7970Ghz edition cards. That will perform the best from AMD. Having the 7990 is more expensive and close to performance but still a little short.

    You may hear people talking about a microstutter issue when AMD cards use crossfire, that makes things look a lot less smooth. This issue is actually fixed. They fixed the issue when they released the 7990 in the 7990 drivers. The driver update to fix all the rest is currently being worked on and is expected to be out in September I believe.
  2. A single 7970 is going to be more than enough to max any of these on a single monitor. I am not a fan of Crossfire, as it is known to be buggy at times, making me lean towards a single 7970 and then possibly adding another later depending on how performance is with games further down the road.
  3. Here is a page of the 7970GHZ edition cards.

    f you are worried about the microstutter issue, I would say use just one 7970 till the update comes out since one 7970 should max out any of those game.

    Yea it has been buggy but its finally being fixed. AMD has found the problem and the fix will be out later this year. So we will have it soon enough, then crossfire will work fine.
  5. Most of those games are going to support the current console generation, meaning that, at worst, it will run well at slightly less than optimal settings on any decent PC. I know there are system requirements for at least BF4 floating around (taken with a grain of salt) and that they weren't that ambitious.

    I like the idea of the Sapphire 3GB card or even getting a 6GB card (I am not to keen on the prices and availability of these) because I remember when everyone was adamant that "you'll never need more than 1GB of VRAM." That lasted a year.

    6GB is a little excessive. People were way wrong saying "you will never need more than 1GB of VRAM". My 7850 has 2GB and it uses 1600MB a lot of times on Tomb Raider lol. Since vRAM usage is mostly dependent on resolution and textures I think he may be okay with 3GB, especially since he plans to use Crossfire. I personally love the idea of having 6GB also, but since he will be doing the crossfire and everything I honestly think he can make do on just 3GB. Though if he has the extra cash more never hurts :p
  7. It is better not to get your hopes on incase it doesn't do what you hope.

    Keep in mind that since the card has two GPUs it really is only 3gb card since the memory is mirrored. With AMD's new drivers fixing the frame pacing you get better than or near GTX 780 performance (depending on which game benchmarks you see) for the same price. The 8 free game bundle even makes it more enticing.
