In the case of graphics card which is better ?
1. 2-way crossfire hd 7970.
2. amd hd 7990
3. buy the new rx9-2xx gpu (if rx9 gpu is good please tell me one which will at least last for 5-6years)
4.buy a nvidia gpu (I have no idea about nvidia gpu; please recommend me one)


Please also recommend me a good mother board.

So i wanted to keep this machine below 1800$ but its around 1850$ without mother board. PLease tell me how i can reduce it. I wanted some advice on graphics card and motherboard (basically). I also wanted to ask do i need to get a ups or not?
I will be buying this buy the end of october
I will play games like battlefield 4 and 3 , gta 4 with mods ,crysis 3 and other demanding games at ultra or high settings.
Sorry for my bad english.
