New GPU: Budget around $400 help?

Hey all
I am looking to pick out a new GPU for my PC. I built this PC around 3 weeks ago, and my fan failed in my GTX 760, so I had to return it. I have a 550W PSU, an FX-6350 and 8GB RAM. I was looking at either the 680, the 770 or the 7970. Also a possibility to do an SLI/Crossfire, I'm just not sure how my PSU would handle it. Thanks.

  1. i don't think your 550w psu can handle sli/crossfire. try getting 700w psu at least. as for gpu, if it were me, i would choose to get gtx 770.

    $400 is the realm of the GTX 770. Your PSU is only enough for a single card. 750 watts of a quality power supply should be considered a minimum for SLI/Crossfire to allow some overhead.
