    Question GPU Upgrade

    Here is the case.
    I recently bought a new system,including:

    -8 GB RAM
    - A GTX 660
    - Intel i5-3570 (4x3,4Ghz)

    So my question is,what GPU should i buy next?Crysis 3 runs on stable 40-50 fps on High.25-35 on Very High.
    But im thinking about buying a second GTX 660.
    Or should i go for a GTX 680 or 690?

    My opinion get a 2nd GTX 660.

    If you get GTX 680 or 690 you can't utilize your GTX 660.

    Not necessary, 2x 660 will be fine.

    Sell your 660 and buy a 690, one 690 is much better tha 2 660's.

    But a 690 costs around 900 euros here.Lets say i'll sell my card for 100,i'd have 350 euros in total.Any GPUs for that price?

    i hear there's a line of 700 cards coming form nvidia so wait a little bit and pick one of them up perhaps or go with two 660ti's i used to run that without watercooling and it was at a good stable heat and i had a EVGA stock cooler on those bad boys right up until i got my 690 for a trade of the 2 660ti's and YuGioH card deck ya a card deck

    Go for the 780!

    Save your money and buy one of those!
    I'm thinking of buying 3x780 running SLI and watercooling them!

    If it's a standard 660, I'd say sell it and invest in maybe a 680/690.
    If it's a 660 Ti, I'd go SLi 2 x 660 Ti's

    They'd be roughly the same price. From what I've heard, 660 Ti's in SLI perform up to 50% better than a Single 680.
