My System Specs

Default Problem

I currently have a problem dealing with what I want to do with my main system. I have an Asus Matrix 7970 Platinum, a MSI Lightning GTX 680 and a Powercolor 7950 PCS+ and I would maybe purchase another to crossfire the 7950s. What is your opinion on what I should do? The system is mainly used to play BF3, Medal of Honor and Borderlands 2 and also for whatever future games that are coming out. Thanks!

7970 with the 7950 in crossfire seems like the best choice.

680 for sure,it overclocks very well and it's the best single card card you can have.

Bliz... Look at the new reviews, The 680 Is no longer the leader.

With that said, Single card, No eyefinity/Surround Id go AMD Single card. Too many issues with crossfire.
Multi monitor, 2 680s or 1 680 4GB

Beside SLI/Crossfire Is too much watts for not enough gain now days.
