System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Internet, Video editing, and Movies

Buying a Monitor: Yes I am, possibly a 120hz.

Do You need an OS: Yes.

If you plan on playing BF3 you want to leave the option open for SLI seeing how BF3 was coded for that.

For BF3 it's about the same, but if you play other games, I would go with the 7970's.
