Best GPU for Skyrim? 670, 680, 7970?

could even go 690 but think that's not worth the price ratio at the moment. i know i wanna use lots of texture mods so i already bought an EVGA superclocked 4gb 670, but now i'm reading that after the latest 12.7 drivers, the 7970 3gb (or even 7950) might do a better job plus it has a higher memory bus (whatever that is lol). may go dual cards in the future, but i hear a single card works best for skyrim. i'll be playing on am hdtv 1080p, but will use higher resolutions later on.

so what's your opinion on the best card for this game? thanks

  1. For 1080p Skyrim, what you already have is massively overkill.
    If anything I would get a refund and purchase a lower end card and invest the money in an SSD or something.
    Crossfire/SLI in general is not needed until you start adding more screens. If you are needing to Crossfire/SLI to maintain decent 1080p performance, you are better off just replacing the card you have instead of getting another.
