Well firstly I would advise against getting a crossfire setup or SLi setup as you would be better off with a good card versus 2 lower end cards put together. You are safer off with a single card scaling wise then 2 cards and it leaves you open for expandability in the future rather than maxing yourself off to start.

I would look at the 7970 one like this

Or quite possibly a 670 or 680

For the price the 670 most certainly. You couldn't feel the difference with a 670 against a 7970 unless you were running higher then a 1080p display or you were running a multi monitor setup which in either case you would want two of any of the cards I have listed. If it were me I would get the 670 I feel you get similar performance to the 7970 at a cheaper price. The 680 is nice however its not a whole lot better then either card.

If you were going to get a 7970 and were insistent on it I would try and get this one. Seems to be one of the better priced Ghz edition cards and has a great cooler. I do like ASUS's cards though they are dead silent.
