Looking to get a new single GPU for my system within the next few months. Under 550?

What is the best single GPU that I could get within the next 3 months? I will be using it to power triple 144hz monitors. I need some opinions. I don't care about power consumption, or heat. I just want the best single GPU for under 550. Thanks! -T
Also, I had a few in mind. Like the new erm, 390x/390, or maybe the 380x? I would probably overclock. Maybe a 980? I am sick of microstuttering.

  1. Wait until AMD releases their 300 series. Then compare the 390x or 380x to the 980 or 980ti. Once they are released and benchmarks are published, you should have a better idea of what you want to get.

    The estimated release date is about June 18th for the AMD 3xx series. Wait for that. I heard that estimated launch price is $599 also for the best of the three, but we will see how it pans out.

    New information is that while the cards will be available for sale on the 18th of June, the specs will be revealed, save for the 390s, at Computex on June 3rd.
