I didn't think I would need help with graphics cards, but since I'm so picky, I wanted to get some more opinions. I'm looking at the 7970's and 7990's, as well as generally the GTX 680's. I haven't really looked fully through the list yet, though, as I really don't know if I NEED something that powerful to meet my high standards.
I know how to use gamebooster 3, to shut off unused services and to tweak my computer to improve it's speed as well as consistently keep it clean to improve speeds. However, I assume most gamers do.
And so I did a bit of research and found that games like Metro 2033, Witcher 2 and Arma 2 are hard to get running at full-on max settings on even the highest-end hardware. Witcher 2 is the one that interests me, and I've seen reports that it can take 3 graphics card just to meet the needs of ubersampling.
So do I need more than 1 of a high-end graphics card? Or would one suffice? Or could I even grab 2 or 3 much cheaper cards to thread together in order to produce essentially the same results?
Note that I use tomshardware.com for my comparisons, so that's where I go to pick out things I fancy., as opposed to something like PassMark.
Hope it was clear enough on what I'm looking at trying to get answered in order to balance power vs money. Edit: I forgot to add that I am looking to keep the FPS as high as possible, even while maxing out eye candy like AA, etc.
