    Thinking about upgrading my video card with my christmas bonus.

    Been looking at a gtx 580 classified pro edition

    Or the 660ti


    Max price range: 400$

    Looking for 3gb, 300+ bit type card


    I do overclock, and plan to convert to liquid cooling in January for the card

    yup, there is still a single card at the $400 range, GTX 670/HD 7970 3GB, so go for it. always go for the single card. as long as you have the money

    If you have the $400 right now, don't even consider doing dual GPUs


    oops i misunderstood the OP., +1 to post above

    my personal choice gtx 670, but if you are going water and OC hd 7970 sounds the winner.

    Same guy?

    Why do you even look at gt 580 anymore?

    3gb 384bit - 7970 it is then.

    This^^ especially at 1080p. You won't notice a difference.

    or at least wait til the 8000 series comes out.
