Looking for a new graphics card

As the topic suggests I'm in the market for a new graphics card. I currently have an ATI Sapphire HD 5770 and the poor thing is starting to show the strain these days.
I have no preference for manufacturer (though I'm tending towards nVidia for the better physics support)
Money is no object for this one so I just want your advice as to what represents good value for features right now.

Personally I'd go for twin 680's but the HD7970 is also pretty beastly. Value for money though, that's a tough one to crack. I saw http://www.techradar.com/news/computing ... cleContent a little while back, it pretty much covers what you're looking for I think :)

HD 7990 with 6144MB GDDR5. Buy two, just in case.

Depends on for much you are looking to spend
If I were to buy a ~£200 card now, it would be the new EVGA GTX 760.

780 is basically Titan without the huge price, much better value... even owners of the Titan reckon they would of waited if they knew the 780 was due soon.
(not quiet as powerful but close and the cost is a bit more reasonable)

mate had dual 680's in his beast.. amazeballs is all I can say,

Should say I've a gtx660 in one pc and a hd 7870 in the other.. both fine cards for the money.. If I had the cash though it'd be dual 680's though. :D

I'm sure you've already thought about it but just for the record are you OK for space and PSU if you go for a more powerful card? The 5770 were IIRC noted for low power consumption is mainly why I mention it.

I'm not shy for space in my case (though even so I will have the funds to upgrade if needed) and I'm running a corsair TX 650 PSU right now so power shouldn't be an issue I should hope.
