    begin with one card first... if not enough you can always add second card later....
    if you can wait just for a few more days... nvivida is about to launch its next gen video cards based on kepler chip.... gtx 680 for about the same price as the hd 7970....

  3. What resolution are you planning to play at? The previous posters recommended cards that are good for resolutions like 5760x1080, but other cards outperform them at 1920x1080.

    What case do you have?
