    A single HD7970 (or even a HD7950 with a good OC) makes the most logical choice.

    You won't be able to "max" out Crysis 3 but you will be able to push all the settings up and still maintain your target framerate. Heck I would imagine "maxed out" looks no different in motion to "not quite maxed out" yet has a high FPS cost.

    Note I run it at "high settings" (shadows on medium) @ 3600x1920 on a single HD7970 clocked to 1250/6400. My framerates as measured in the "Dam" level seem to hover between 35 and 45 FPS.

    Very High settings with some AA should manage better FPS than that at 1080p.

    ^^^ greatest TV Show ever made right there in that picture.

    I will concur with what 90% of people are saying. If you're 1080p'ing it, get a 7970 and clock it high. It wont run Crysis 3 on Ultra mega eye candy of doom settings, but it will do a damn good job of it. If you can afford a Titan, then go for it, but the price/performance is awful.
    My rule of thumb is to get the x950 of each AMD or x70 of each nvidia generation and crossfire/sli, because i just like having two cards to run my 144hz monitor, as that's all that can run things that high. Cards are only getting more energy efficient, and the cost of running my PC on 1050w PSU is pretty cheap anyway... So I'm not one to moan about power costs.
    For 60hz 1080p, 7970 or 680 is very legit, Crysis 3 however being AMD optimised gives you a no brainer choice of AMD.

    Well I play Crysis 3 with my rig (HD7950 @ 1200/1250) + i5 2500k @ 4.7ghz on a 1080P monitor, Driver 13.2 BETA 7, Very high settings, AA 1x or 2x, 16x AF, and for now, it did never lag, always over 30 fps...

    IF U HAVE MONEY, i recommend Titan, but actually Titan is not worth $1000+, it doubled 7970's price.
