Gaming at 2560x1600 on a Korean IPS-LED Monitor

I'm interested in a building or purchasing a game rig that will support high-ultra game settings on a 30" 2560x1600.

I'm a big fan of TCO and would like a systems that will offer me the ability to game for the next 3-4 years but not break the bank.

As a point of comparison, My current setup I have had since 2008 and has done well for itself; Running most games in 1080p with playable fps on a 27" 1920x1200.
Current setup:
i7920 2.66 OC to 3.75; water cooled, mobo EVGA x58 SLI LE
GTX 295 1.792gb

I'm now looking to upgrade my monitor to a 30" LED IPS - 2560x1600 and would like advise on a system that will allow me to play all the latest games in high-ultra settings. My preference would be to not SLI, but use one video card like the 780 or 7990 (I know, technically 2 cards. but all 6gb are accessible).

your expert advise would be most welcome.

AMD just announced their latest cards, as far as I know there isn't any accurate benchmarks but if the rumors are true they compete with the titan and I can almost guarantee at a better price point. If you don't want to wait I would go with the 780 because it's a single card and gives you room in the future if you want to add another.

I personally use a 7970 @ 2560x1440 (Qnix Korean monitor) and play at high/ultra with great frame rates, I came from 1920x1200 and just turned down/off AA so I have similar performance and visually it's great. So with a 780 you will be able to play the latest games fine short of crysis 3 completely maxed out.

burdenbound - thanks for the response. How about the other components for a full system? i5-3570k is enough cpu?

Yeah the 3570k has been great, haven't ran into anything where that the CPU was holding me back. Make sure you have atleast 8GB of RAM, other than that you should be fine.
