To guarantee you can play every single game at 60FPS, you need to go with the big bucks graphics cards. Pick up a 780Ti or a R290x.

Or just get another 7870 and crossfire them. You're gonna get a performance between r9 280x and r9 290.
You could also get an FX-8320 if your mobo supports it and then overclock it.

This sounds like really good... I could get another 7870 but i'll have to upgrade my psu.
I've been considering an FX-8350...but i dont think i need 8 core for gaming.
thanks a lot for your help

You need a 750w psu for hd 7870 crossfire but get a quality one ;) 
And don't buy an FX-8350. Why would you pay 50 dollars more for 500 mhz higher clock, when you can just overclock it?

No, but i think it looks better having two identical :D 
But if it's cheaper, get the xfx one. Just be sure to overclock them to identical speeds, because you don't want one to wait for another ;)

actually the Gigabyte version has the best cooler of the 7870's, so if it fits in your case, i would buy it. And no problem, i was just joking :p
