pretty decent, buddy. you can play anything you want on it at high - max settings at least with constant 60fps i reckon.

I agree with Jess95. It is pretty good however you might wanna consider a single GPU instead of crossfire 7770.
A single card for the price of 2x7770 will very likely beat them and need less power to run. And (I'm not sure about this) I think that there are slight problems with crossfire/SLI namely micro stuttering

well i was on ibuypower just checking out the different gpu's because they have a optimal settings meter that tells you what it will run at with what card and whatnot, and the 2 7770's put battlefield 3 on max and the closest price of a single gpu that could match it was +$500... thanks for the help though peeps i think i'll go ahead and put the order in and hope for the best, been too many days of headaches rebuildin and changin out what i want for parts and whatnot... appreciate the input!! wish me luck.

If you're only concerned with BF3, two 7770's should do. If you're planning on playing a lot of games, a single 7870 or 7950 would be best. Drivers with Crossfire and all that, temp, power, so on.

I will suggest use one card 7950... or even new NVidia GTX680....
for the price you spent ....should be able to do it...

Having no clue how well 7770s perform in crossfire I decided to take a look, I'm surprised they come close to 7950 performance.

At a similar price point, GPU wise, I believe he would have to debate between a 7870 vs 2 7770's if I am not mistaken?

If you can get both the gtx680 and keep the motherboard it would be awesome.
In the future you can always add another gtx680 (ok maybe I'm exaggerating a bit on the GPU horsepower) if needed

i'm really just trying to be able to run diablo 3 at 60+ fps and starting to wonder if i'm taking this system too far lol, the headache continues...the gtx680 would be a $300+ price jump from the 2 amd's .... and if i DID want to pay for the gtx680, should i just go with the AMD Radeon HD 7970 3GB ... which is better?? they are about the same in price..

Either way a little for GPU prices to come down or buy the GTX 680 if your budget is that high. Prices are going to be changed according or better to the GTX 680's awesome $500 price tag.
