All I want to do is max games at 1920x1080. My 580 has performed very well (and still is) but is unable to max more recent games like Far Cry 3 and Rome II. I've been looking at the 7990 but I'm unsure if it's kind of overkill for 1080p and I've never had a AMD card before. Money isn't necessarily an issue but I don't really want to pay over $1,000.
Thanks in advance.

The gtx 770 is probably the best card for 1080p or you can get two evga also makes a really nice cooler for it

Will I really be able to run games on max settings on a 770? It looks like it's signifcantly weaker than a 7990.

The 7990 will be best for far cry 3 but I've noticed crysis3 and most others they like nvidia so I would try to find a gtx 770 if you're only playing at 1080p just for the most part a 7990 is somewhat a good deal atm but really overkill at your res

Ah, I should of clarified that I live in Australia. And I was mostly asking if it was worth it.

To me it is not then again going from your 580 to 770 is not huge leap but the 780 is overpriced. Have you considered or can you SLI? 2 x 760 or 770 I belief both are good bang for the buck.

I'm not really familiar with SLI. I'm sure that I'd screw it up or overheat it.
Also I do plan on having the card for at least a couple of years so that's part of the reason I'm cautious about the 770. I don't want to get something I'll just have to replace in 6 months because it's unable to max everything again.

SLI is simple if your hardware (board, PSU) supports it. 2 x 760 is $500, 1 x 780 $600+ for less performance.

I had one gtx 770 for 2 weeks before I went sli it runs far cry 3 at over 60 fps without going under and crysis 3 at 60+fps with 52 being the lowest

Hmmmm. SLI sound pretty good but wont it need more power, get hotter and be louder? I'm not sure its worth it as I may have to upgrade my PSU and cooling as well.

about 78-80c which isn't to bad for sli the requirement is 750w psu for gtx 770 in sli and 42amps on 12v rail
