GPU selection help

I'd like some opinions from everyone on the best gpu for my rig. Motherboard is an Asus p8p67 deluxe rev 3 CPU is Intel core i-7 2600k sandy bridge. I'm big into gaming and am wanting to do an sli set up. Price range would be 2 to 3 hundred per card max. Though I can only get one card for now. All help is appreciated thanks.

  1. it really depends on what is your budget...

    if you wan't 2 to 3 hundred on each card, i would say, check the 680,:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130769
    (that one is out of stock, but look for another shops close to your city, etc).

    the price should be less than 600 dollars and it will perform very good, awesome single card solution, i really recommend you that gpu.

    but if you really can't go for it, check for those setups in SLI, but be aware SLI requires a lot of Power, you must be sure your PSU can handle both cards together;

    AMD SOLUTION in that price range:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125419


    Nvidia Solution
    in that price range:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130758

    a little over the price range:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127582

    but this will change depending on what store you buy it, if you find any of those at good prices go for it, but again i highly recommend you checking the 680 if possible.
  2. Sorry I should have included the PSU. I have an antec 850. That would be a great card just way out of my price range rite now. Hence wanting to do an sli set up but only being able to afford one card for now unless I can get both for around 400. I don't need top of the line but I don't want something that ill work to death and have to upgrade in a year. Thanks for your help
  3. I'd recommend a GTX570 SLI setup if you can spare around 270-300$ per card. If you want something cheaper, SLI a pair of GTX480's. They go for 210$ per card on Newegg atm and the performance is similar to that of the 570. Be warned, however, that they do tend to run hot and consume a bit of electricity. I've heard of noise issues, but I've also heard of people who claim that noise isn't an issue. As I don't own the card, I can't really say.

    Radeon wise, 7850 is probably the way to go. You can also look into 6950/70 and 6870 if you want cheaper cards.
