I heard that this card can only run 4K at 30hz, is this real? Or can I use HDMI and DP together to get 4K 60hz as the card sees the 4K monitor as 2 monitors?

Your CPU will bottleneck rhis GPU. You need at least a quad core. Also it will be nice to upgrade to 8 GB of ram if you can. For CPU I recommend i5(quad ones) since you already have an intel mobo. Also you will need a strong PSU that has at least one 6 pin and one 8 pin connector and can give at least 450-500W on the 12V rail so it should have at least 550 or 600W total.

Hey guys, would this be a good upgrade for my rig? I know I'm gonna get a 7970 because of their free games promotion going on right now, but I'm just not sure which 7970 to get. This one seems like the best for the price, what do you guys think?

your cpu can't bottleneck because your cpu is very capable to handling hd 7970 on cross fire.

An i7 860 2.8 Ghz is enought for this card?
I was planning to get the 670 amp but I've found this card with a lower price.
