Help choosing a graphics card

This is my system so far:

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/nn5z

I would like to play the newest titles on ultra or high @ 1920x1080
Eventually i will upgrade to SLI or Xfire and add 2 more monitors for a Nvidia Surround or AMD equivlilent
My PSU has 4 6+2 PCIE connectors
I know this is alot to ask but id like to keep the price below $250(single GPU) but if a higher quaility or better brand is a little bit more i could probably swing it...

Any help is always appreciated....

    AMD has more bandwidth than competing nVidia cards so that will give it a huge advantage in multiscreen setups.

    Outdated and overpriced.

    A 7850 will give the same performance but use way less power and cost less.

    That was one of the cards i was looking at, but i have never used a Gigabyte part in any computer... are they any good???
  4. Gigabyte cards are one of the best. Very quiet. Good warranty. Just a bit long.

    But how do they compare to the ASUS and MSI 7870s?.... any real differences besides price?
  6. Cooling solution from Gigabyte is one of the best.

    Would it be worth a little extra money to go for a 7950....? is going from 256bit to 384 bit worth it if i plan on Xfire?

    Yea. I would say it would be worth it for multimonitor setups.
