I currently have an i5 3570k and a mobo with dual pcie 3.0 8x/8x support for crossfire. I have a monitor with a resolution of 1440x900p, and yes I know that either of these cards is complete overkill for that resolution *but overkill is great for gaming huh?* but Im a hardcore gamer, playing BF3,WoW,GW2,PS2,and upcoming crysis 3 religiously. I hope to be able to max out my graphics and everything with these cards, but Im worried as if I should just get a radeon 7950 to be more future proof to when I get a 1080p monitor *hopfully pretty soon* or should I just go with the cheaper alternative 7870 and be able to max it out, or should I just go with a nvidia 660ti? Im not a huge fan of nvidia but if its better performance I could give it a go.

The 7950 is probably the best bang for the buck graphics card near the higher end of the scale right now. With 3GB of video memory, a full 256 bit bus and often models come with dual-bios so you can flash your card to overclocked frequencies, plus AMD is throwing in free games, go with either the Gigabyte 7950 or Sapphire or even MSI.

Good luck!
