My setup is all about cooling and I play anything that tests my setup.

I am looking to upgrade from the GTX 260's to something better than a gtx 400 series? doesn't matter if its amd or nvidia... I will be water cooling these.

Max budget is around $1000

My current setup is as follows:
Msi Big Bang Xpower 1366
i7 -990x oc 5.9ghz
6 gb of Corsair Vengeance ddr3 -2000
corsair 256gb SSD
corsair ax1200 psu
corsair Obsidian 800d
Water cooled 4 triple 120m rads with 12- 38mm Kaze 3000 fans (36,000rpms)
Swiftech apogee xt waterblock

1)Or two gtx580 and ad another one later for 3way SLI.


2)If those 1k do not include the water kit for the cards it will be ok, if not, 2x gtx570 with water cooling kits will go underneath 1k.

6970 in crossfire(2) will beat a 570 sli(2), but not by much. Since nvidia drivers are more stable or less buggy (by my knowledge) in multiple gpu configurations, nvidia should be the way to go.
