Re ?1: What game are you refering to?

Re ?2: Depends on several factors. What gpu's are the 57xx cards? Do you already have both of them in your system or only 1 and you need to get the other? What psu?

That brings it down to just the budget. I'm running a pair of 5870's in xfire and if the budget was there, I'd jump to the gtx690. It being, basically, a dual 680, you have the option of getting another 690 later for a quad sli.

are you hitting 60fps i hit
44fps on far cry 2 i wouldn't have thought 800mhz v 875mhz would make that much of a diff it maby time to overclock to 900mhz
gtx690@1200.00$ no wonder we have ps3's
