Sorry, didn't take a good look at your specs before responding. In that case, getting the AMD 6990 dual GPU card would be greatly beneficial. You don't need a Crossfire motherboard for it, and you would have 2GB of VRAM per GPU (4GB total). Its price is also similar to two 570s (2x~$350 vs ~$700), and its performance is comparable, and I would say its the superior solution for the resolutions you are gaming at. The only problem you would have to deal with is the noise.
