Or just give people who know what they are buying a great deal! People who know their computers now days, Know that 2 660's or 7870's on even x8 - x8 express2.0 will produce the best possible graphics for even a multi-monitor setup at the highest in-game qualities! x2.0 - 16x provides 3%/ x3.0 provides up to 5% increase.
Though depending on the CPU will greatly increase results! In this day and age, Intel with a discrete GPU will win! I am an analysts, This is my job! 2 Years ago I would have suggested AMD, but now as it stands.. Untill AMD releases their second Gen APU's, Intel is still the way to go if you plan on going with a discrete GPU. AMD is the better choice for the everyday consumer though!
