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 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.
