Need help choosing 1 GPU to play Battlefield preferably on ultra on 1080p monitor

And I will be overclocking and one day maybe go crossfire or sli.

Here is my rig
http://pcpartpicker.com/user/bloodyterrific/saved/3a6E

So far I am leaning towards:
http://www.mwave.com.au/product/gigabyte-amd-radeon-r9-...
and
http://www.mwave.com.au/product/evga-geforce-gtx-760-ft...

I will be choosing in terms of performance in overclocking and sli/crossfire

is there any other gpu suggestions?

why are you going with the i7 over an i5 4670k? the pro series over the evo and a 1000w power supply? If you knock some money off there you can get a 290, 290x or 780.

also why are you spending that much money on an air cooler when liquid cooling solutions start around that price? anything above a hyper212 evo is a waste.

or moulder if you planning future sli

it depends on what you need after all



and you could save and get gtx 780 super clocked

edit :

and windows is like 80 bucks from amazon
and Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB is 60 without going for mail rebate @amazon
and I would also suggest crucial m500 it's just for 140 and you would be very satisfied

for 300-400 you're looking at the 280x or 770, possibly the 290(which is by far the best of these 3) once the prices come back to normal. Look for msi, asus, evga(for the 770), sapphire(for 280x) and gigabyte.

we are only making suggestions for you to not spend a lot of dollars when you can achieve better performance with same a mount of money you spend , and games these year just a power grabbing and also part of my replay was about price is higher on your list while you can get it cheaper ,anyway i would go for 770 super clocked 4gb version
