I'd upgrade monitor with a 670. 1080p is great but I'd want more, such as 1440p.

2 gb vram will be enough at that res? games like crysis 2 and battlefield 3 might hit that ceiling

2GB 670 SLI's best monitor platform is single 1080p 120hz, not 1440p+ IPS/triple monitor set up. The later exposes its vram size/speed limitations in some games while wasting the extra FPS you get from SLI. If you are going to game on a unlocked Catleap/other 1440p+ IPS(not recommended for FPS due to ghosting), go for Crossfire 3GB HD 7950/7970 instead.

Save cash and get a i5 rather, put the difference to a HD 7970.

u must be using eyefinity since there is no point in getting 7970 toxic 6gb card. Are u planning to crossfire with the same set up.

i think an i5 3570k with dual 670 on a 120hz 1080p 24" monitor would be perfect

Well considering how I had to sell a kidney to get this, probably not soon though we have three kidneys and only need one.

Its purpose was insane resolution and thats where it excels, compared with a GTX 680 at 25:14 or bigger res the card starts to show growing gains in average and minimum FPS over the 3GB 680 which is a very strong card in its own right.

It was tested on Eyefinity and extreme resolution performance at 1920x1080 its barely worth the fuss.
