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.

Here are my pc specs:

CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor ($209.99 @ Amazon)
Motherboard GIGABYTE GA-H67M-D2-B3 LGA 1155 Intel (Discontinued @ Newegg)
Memory: Patriot Gamer 2 Series 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3-1333 Memory ($26.98 @ Amazon)
Memory: Patriot Gamer 2 Series 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3-1333 Memory ($26.98 @ Amazon)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($54.99 @ Microcenter)
Video Card: Asus Radeon HD 6870 1GB Video Card ($206.26 @ Mac Connection)
Power Supply: Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 800W 80 PLUS Gold Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($148.99 @ SuperBiiz)
Optical Drive: Asus BC-12B1ST/BLK/B/AS Blu-Ray Reader, DVD/CD Writer ($56.23 @ Amazon)

its gonna be nice performance to run crossfire and will be cheaper than buying a new card and not worth it performance wise, since u already own a 6870 id say go with a second one for that price :) 

also whats the current model of ur 6870 so i can pair it up with a similar one.

also is this ur current computer or the pc ur gonna get thanks.
