This is asked a lot in this board, I know that. What card is gonna make me have some seriously maxed out performance in upcoming games like Crysis 2 and other high ends? Should I wait for the Cayman series or the Antilles? Maybe try out Nvidia and their 500 series? I'm a bigger fan of single gpu cards and ati personally, but I think my goal is to have good power, but still within some level of reason on price. I also like great cooling that manages to be quiet. Like after market overclocked cards, not that I couldn't clock them myself but the additional fans and upgraded sinks tend to be handy.
Btw, here's what other stuff I'll have for this build:
Asus Rampage III Extreme
Monitor will be the Acer GD235HZ (only one)
Corair 850W PSU
if you want such a card right now, it will be GTX580. it can max out most game out there at 1980x1080. but if you want to wait for cayman or antilles is up to you.
Wait for the Caymans, they're scheduled this month.
i thought that AMD already officially push the launch date on mid decemberhttp://techreport.com/discussions.x/19973
