Hello all!
I Built a computer about a year ago. I have been having trouble deciding what exactly I would like to upgrade in my rig. Input would be much appreciated
Das Rig:
Asrock Z68 extreme 3 gen 3
MSI 560ti hawk 1gb
8gb Corsair Vengeance low profile
750w PC Power and Cooling
128gb OCZ Vertex 4
Monitor: ASUS 24" 1080p

I would like to either upgrade to a GTX 670 or add another 560ti Hawk. My future plans include getting another two 1080p monitors to play games like bf3 or Skyrim in triple monitor resolutions. Suggestions?

Hah your rig is near identical to mine, just a generation behind. I recently upgraded my hawk and couldnt bring myself to move away from MSI gear. I was told a jump to a 670 wouldnt be that noticable so should get a 680, but that was just the store owner trying to make a buck. I got a 670 Power edition, which is about 5% slower than a 680. Good value right there. My 3dMark11 score went from approx 6000 to approx 9000. Decent gain right there. The twin frozr 4 is also quieter than the 3.

I should add i dont play on three monitors however, but it does crysis 2 on ultra at 60fps and runs at 50-60% usage if i limit it at 60 fps.
