Hello Predator, honestly I need to know what you're going to do with this card are you going to do heavy gaming or what? If you have no budget and want the best GPU's out there get a 7970 or Gtx 690. Also, what's the wattage of your PSU that will determine what card you might get.

Wow! Three minutes after asking about a card you are expert enough to advise someone else what to get.

Dang mouse! Creeper :p  I tease.

There are a few things to ask.

Firstly, what resolution do you run?

What graphics settings would you like?

What is your budget?

Would you be comfortable changing components out a power supply as an example.

You have a nice system... But you left out all the information needed to give you a suggestion... Things such as Resolution you are playing at your PSU wattage and model, and a budget. You say you don't have a budget so are you willing to spend $2,000 to sli GTX 690's? Yea.... give us some kind of guidelines to start from.

Don't you find it strangely amusing that someone who is asking rather basic questions themselves suddenly feel that they can advise someone else what card to get?

Yea i was just reading his last post then switched here to see him being first comment and giving advice. He knows enough to tell others what to buy but not enough to make his own purchases... Always easier to spend someone elses money :)

Haha! Sounds like a true politician right :p  Always easy to spend what isn't yours and think you are wiser then the one with the money.

I do agree with you though mouse that advising someone after asking basic questions in another thread seems a bit odd.

He's not the first one to do that but it still narks me off.

The problem with that is it would just be ignored like the "Read This First" sticky is.

Ah very true people normally go for the resolution before taking the time to research an issue before asking so I see your point.
