APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Unknown, whenever I get the job I applied for and then how many weeks it takes to get the money. (Doing a full new build with this)
USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming and internet surfing.
CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: Looking at the Sapphire 7970 Vapor-X, but I think I will get better performance with dual graphics. Also looking at XFX 1050W.
OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: CPU: i5-3570k; Mobo: ASUS P8Z77-V PRO; Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws X 1600 8GB
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg
PARTS PREFERENCES: Been looking at NVIDIA a lot since the games I play seem to perform better with them.
OVERCLOCKING: Probably, depending on how good they perform stock.
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080. Single monitor (I know that dual cards for one monitor is extreme but I think I may go eyefinity in the future)
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: This will be for a completely new build and the GPU is the only thing I am unsure about. Try to stay around $600, maybe will push $700. The build with the Vapor-X is currently $2500 so want to try not to pass $2750.

Go with a single GTX670 to start with and then add another one down the road. Eyefinity is AMD.
I don't recommend multi gpu setups from either camp. They still have too many issues. I would go with the Sapphire card. Its very fast, plenty for any game at your screen resolution.
