I have an Intel Core i7-3770K @ 4.2 GHz CPU and am willing to buy a Radeon HD 8970 when it comes out. I currently have 16 GB DDR3 1600 MHz, ASUS P8Z77-M PRO, 1920x1200 monitor and a 3 TB Western Digital Caviar Green (7200 RPM, 64 MB Buffer Size, SATA 6 GB/s) Hard Drive. I'm going to buy a 1000 / 1000+ Watt PSU, because I might go CrossfireX after a couple of years, and of course a large box which is going to fit a bunch of HD 8970s, but for now, I'm going to get only one 8970, when they are released.. I think that it's going to be a great system overall, and that the performance of the components is going to be similar so no throttling or bottle-necking occurs. How long do you think that this system is going to last in the future? Do you think that it's going to perform at its best with the components given above? Do you think that it'll perform extremely well on Crysis 3, Far Cry 3 and Battlefield 4 fully maxed out at 1920x1200? When is it going to become obsolete for the latest games (by obsolete I mean that the system has an average frame rate below 24 FPS on the lowest settings possible at 800x600). What price points should I expect for the Radeon HD 8970 graphics adapter, I think that it's going to cost around 400 euro, tell me if you have any other information. And I'd like to find out if you know something connected with the release date of Radeon HD 8970, I think that it's going to be released in Q2'13. Thanks for the answers, I'll really appreciate it if you take a few minutes from your time to read this. Have a good day!
