I have recently just built a new pc desktop and everything has gone superb my specs:

Bitfenix Colossus case
MSI Z77A-G45 Motherboard
i7-3770k cpu with Hydro H80 liquid cooler
2x4Gb corsair vengeance ram Blue
750 watt OCZ 80+ Bronze psu

Everything went excellent until i bought 2x Asus radeon 6870 GDDR5 graphics cards, These have to be the worst crossfire compatible cards ive ever had i can't even get crysis 2 to run smooth on low settings ive tried numerous drivers etc and its just not working. I'm so annoyed ive had them 3 days and i just cant play anything with them, so the only option i have is to sell them and get another card.
So could anyone suggest a decent card that can outperform 2x 6870 cards but also not be more than my pc put together lol.

Thanks.

Your best bet is to wait for 660 TI to be released otherwise one of these cards should preform rather well.

I have just ordered one which also comes with 3 free games Nexuiz, Dirt showdown and Deus Ex which aint bad i guess.

Hope this card works better than the crossfire setup i had lol, aslong as i can at least play crysis 2 on medium to high 1920x1080 will do me fine.

Thanks for all your help.
