Hello. I simply cannot decide which GFX card to get? Right now i use on board video.. lol !

My setup is:
2500k ~ 4.2GHz
16GB ram
1200 PSU
24' inch monitor ~1900x1200

I want to play ALL my games in 1900x1200 with everything on max - Crysis 3!

So what GFX should I get you think? I'm thinking about getting the 7970 but I simply don't know if I will be able to run Crysis 3 with everything on max and still have a +40-50 FPS?

I'm also afraid if I get the 7970 or 670, I won't be able to run the NEW games coming during the year with all the eye candy on, hence why I should perhaps just go all in and get the Titan?

.. Oh and yeah.. I use 1 monitor only

So what do you guys think I should get in order to run all games in 1900x1200 with everything on max (all eye candy on) ??

SLI / CF is not an option.


Thanks

680 or 690 will do it for you. I   like EVGA brand myself.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Well since the 7990 was just announced I think your should choose between that and the 690. The titan is good, but the 7990 and 690 benchmark higher than the titan. But if you dont want to spend that money, I would choose the 7970 ghz because the new drivers have been able to be just around, if not better, than a 680. And its around the same price point.

My 670 is pretty good, Crysis 3 is a little slower than I would like.  I just ordered 670 number 2, it may be overkill, but I will deal with the sli issues for the price I paid (780 for both total).  You cannot go wrong with any although from what i read sli is still superior over crossfire (AMD is addressing this but the driver will not be released til July).  The TITAN is overpriced even though it is a great performer, having one of those if you could even find one is almost more about bragging rights.  That's my opinion, and an overclocked 670 will give you 680 levels of performance pretty easily.

Best single card currently is the dual GPU 7990. If you want PhysX then the 690 or Titan. Just depends on how much you have or want to spend if SLI or Crossfire isn't an option.

Unlimited budget:

Titan: It has enough memory to pus the resolution of any future monitor you get (to a certain extent) PLENTY of horsepower for all the eye candy you could want, and full support for Physx, which you wouldn't get with an AMD card. All in all, thats your best option without going dual GPU.

For a sub 500$ budget I would suggest the 7970.  I believe that you can still get the deal where you buy the card and get like, 3 Triple A games for free.  Also, with the new Never settle drivers, the 7970 is pulling up to, and in some cases ahead of the 680.  It is also better for things like folding / bitcoin mining, and can also handle resolution a bit better.  the 7970 is also a bit cheaper and better bang for your buck... Idk though, it's been awhile since I checked the performance /price ratios

 

PC Specs:

  • AMD Athlon 64 x2 6400+  Cooled by a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus (push-pull)
  • 2GB DDR2
  • MSI Radeon HD 6450 2GB
  • Stock Dell motherboard
  • 250Gb HDD
  • XFX Pro Core edition 650W PSU
  • Stock Dell inspiron case

Price/performance the 7970 beats the 680 every day of the week. The OC/whatever editions of the 680 beat the 7970 OC editions at a $100-150 difference for not terribly alot more of performance. Also the 7990 and 7970 comes with 8 games I believe.
