I am sorry that i am here again, but i think i catch techno fever :D  So on my main rig, i run a one 660, and i think it starts to getting kinda old.

Other specs are :

Crucial m4 256GB
ASUS Sabertooth X79
Intel Core i7-3930K
Corsair Vengeance 16GB

It was mainly made for video editing and gaming, i couldnt afford more expensive card in that time.

What i saw great reviews on ... 2x 560 Ti, GTX 680 Classified.

I would finally want to make BF3 maxed out run with 3 numbers in FPS.

I always get great help here, so thanks alot ! :)

You could add a second GTX660 in SLI. That's a hell of a lot better than two GTX560 Tis in SLI! Much higher framerates than a GTX680 too.

That wouldn't give triple digits in BF3 though by the way. That would require triple GTX680s and would set you back a little more than $700 :-) Some would even consider it overkill.

Well... i saw a article about 2x 560 Ti and i5-2500K running ... Avg 136 FPS.
I dont know if i can post it, but the forum thread name is : ,, BF3 64 player MP CPU benchmarks!" and it is not on this forum.

Sell your 660 and get 2 GTX670s.

Hmm... i really like performance of GTX680, so would be 2x MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 2GB good shot ?

It would be a very powerful setup, but still not triple digit framerates in BF3 maxed. What resolution are you playing at? GTX690 is effectively dual GTX680s - you can see how it performs at 1440p and triple screens:

Even with three monitors, only Metro 2033 can bring it down (though Far Cry 3 will also, unless patches have massively improved performance).

EDIT: Be aware GTX680s are only ~6% faster on average than GTX670s - dual GTX670s might be the smarter choice.

Oh, i play at 1080p. On youtube, it seems like it have tripple diggits framerate, viz. GTX 670 SLI Extreme FPS Battlefield 3 Multiplayer.

If i would choose dual 670... would be Gigabyte Windforce good choice ? :)

I think so. I have a high opinion of Gigabyte, never had any problems with them. Only problems I see people talking about with them on the forums is coil whine. See how you go with it though - you can send it back if it's a problem.

Hmm... hope if i would had this problem, Define R4 will solve it. And thats another question, even if it is not about graphic card. I still have box cooler on my i7, and i would like to overlock to 4.5GHz... maybe 5GHz if possible. But when u overclock to these temps, you need good cooler... so is any way i could stuck a H100i into Define4 ? I saw some space between "disk slots", but that would look very bad.
So can you recommend me some great air cooler atleast ? Thanks :)
