Hello all,

I am planning on buying an Asus VG278 HE screen. It will be the 1st 120Hz capable monitor I am buying and I currently own an nvidia 570 card which I want to replace. I am just looking for suggestions on which card would be capable of driving this monitor and is also an upgrade to what I currently have.

Many thanks.

For a single card setup, and a 1080p display, I'd get a 7970 right now while they're on sale. I've seen some around $300-$350 for boxing week. Do you guys have boxing week outside of Canada? If so, get shopping! If you plan to go SLI, I'd get 2x GTX 670's on sale, also around $300-$350 each on sale now. But really a single 7970 should be enough.

Thank you very much for the quick reply. I will probably go for 1 X 670 for now as I don't want to rule out the possibility of a dual card setup. As for the prices here in Greece, they are way above those in US or Canada. Can't find a 670 for less than 390 euros which is $515.

Do the European Amazon sites ship to Greece? I get awesome prices from Amazon.co.uk, .de and .fr (less so .es or .it). All ship to Belgium for free.

Example: I recently bought a powercolor 7970 for eur 320 total!

They do ship to Bulgaria so they should to Greece too. The shipment for a video card from amazon.de was 8 Euro.

I got my Asus 278He and I am very happy with it so far. Thx for all your help. I am ready now to replace my 570 card and I am thinking of getting 2 X 670s. Are there any issues with 120Hz and SLI configurations. I am reading on several fora that SLI and 120Hz at 1440p is not possible so far. Asus VG278HE is 1080p so I guess I wont have any problems but I just want to make sure. Please also note that VG278HE goes up to 144Hz 1080p which I would like to take advantage of.

Yes it will work. Those several fora are wrong. We're right (and modest)
