So I'm thinking of buying a new motherboard and in doing so I need a new GPU.
So the cards I'll have the money for and are what I would probably want would be the 7970 or 590 or 6990 or 2x 580's SLI, so any ideas what I should get??
Btw I will be getting a ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z Gen3 Motherboard which has PCIe 3.0 support.
Go For a 7970 , it's the fastest Single GPU Card out , it's faster than a single 580 and a little slower that 2 of them and keep in mind that games usually work better with single Gpus ( 590 and 6990 both beeing Dual GPU cards )
and if u really find yourself in need of more 3D "HorsePower" u can alway Crossfire it with another 7970
2 * 580 will cost a lot more that a single 7970 , and also have more power consumption ( and to be honest sounds a little Outdated , since new nvidia Gpus are around the corner ... )
if u want to buy "Right now" and can't w8 to see what nvidia new Gpus have to offer , then i think , as i already said , that the 7970 is the way to go ...
( 7970 is a PciE 3.0 Card so plugged into the right MB will be more efficient and with drivers beeing release by AMD it's performance will increase . )
