GPU Headache...

I've been trying to figure out what the best gpu is to buy, but the moment i think i got it figured out I find a new piece of info and i have to re-read the benchmarks.
I plan to run 1 monitor at either 1920x1200 or 2560x1600.
Say I want to run Metro 2033: Last Light. Settings at dx11 max quality, max AA (AAA i think), max AF, DoF. Basically absolute max graphics settings and get 80+ fps what graphics card should I buy. I am planning on using dual cards. I was going to go sli 580's but looking at benchmarks they cant handle these requirements from what I see. Maybe I'm reading the benchmarks wrong?

  1. Why would you want 80+ fps?

    SLI 580s can run Metro 2033 at 65fps @ 1920x1200 which is more then enough.
  2. Maxed out setting stil gets 65fps?
  3. Yeah

    You would need three 580s to get 80+ fps but I don't understand why you want 80+
  4. A typcial 60Hz monitor will basically be limited to 60 frames per second because the monitor will only recieve a signal from the video card 60 times per second.
  5. Reminds me of Spinal Tap but my amplifier goes to "11".
  6. you should try two 6990's but why you want 80+fps,50-60fps is enough and is your monitor 60 Hz or 70Hz
