  1. Always go single-card if possible. That way you can avoid problems like micro stuttering. And maybe you can put in another 7850 after time, if you feel the need.
  2. HD 6850s will give you better FPS than a single HD 7850, but you don't wanna experience negative CF scaling and drivers issue or wait for a CAP to be released to play every modern game, so a single powerful card is recommended.

    Can you push your budget to $360-$400?

    I imagine so, shouldn't be that big of a deal.
    What do you have in mind?
  4. Since you require a good graphics power for your games you must consider a high end GPU, right now the GTX 670 is the best bang for buck it has the same performance of HD 7970 and costs $70 less.

    What's your total system specs including monitor resolution?

    Consider going single card to avoid issues. It would be better to go for the current generation cards than the past ones at this point.

    This will be my whole system- secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=20457326
    Main reason I went with all the cooling I could get was for OCing.

    I want to play at 1920x1080.

    What video card do you have in mind?

    I can go with the card for sure!
    Why not go with the Thermaltake PSU though?

    Got it!
    The NZXT seems to give for bang for your buck over the Corsair one then :P
    One more quick question, why not go with a Radeon 7950? It seems like one hell of a deal for a card like that.
  10. GTX 670 matches HD 7970 performance with the price of HD 7950. Though If you wanna go HD 7950 there should be no problem, this card overclocks really well.

    The NZXT hales 90 series are one of the best PSUs in the world.

    Ahh ok, I see then. I'll probably keep with the 670 then and I know NZXT does a really great job with everything they manufacture.
