Closed 7870 vs 660 vs 2x6870 Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Product Last response: December 23, 2012 6:30 PM in Graphics & Displays Share burritobob December 23, 2012 2:42:23 PM I'm planning on playing more game such as GW2, PS2, BF3, maybe C3 when it comes out, I was wondering which gpu i should get. I currently have a single 6870 and i run 2 1680x1050 monitors, and it can run some games max and others only on medium. Which gpu or gpus would be better for this situation? A single 7870 a single 660 or a 2nd 6870? I take any recommendations into account thanks for the feedback.
