    Upgrading GPU Cards

    I want two GPU's, as I run multi monitor setup.

    I'd like to know what I can get for roughly 1k USD.

    Any recommendations ?

    You don't need multiple GPUs for a multi monitor setup FYI. only if you want to game on multiple monitors. Even then, it's better to go with a 4k or ultrawide monitor these days as opposed to separate monitors (SLI and Crossfire isn't supported very well anymore).

    I moved to a 1080Ti and a 3440x1440 ultrawide and it was a good choice for me.

    Choices aside, now is a *******REALLY******* bad time to buy a GPU or RAM. The prices are so inflated because of crypto currency miners, the price I got my 1070 for 2 years ago is HALF what it costs now, and my 1080Ti was 500$ cheaper than the current price for them. Wait for GPU supply to increase before buying. For 1080p gaming on a single monitor, wait till the 1070s are back in the $450 range, and for ultrawide/4k gamins, a 1080Ti or possibly 1070Ti is a good choice at 850/750 respectively
    I don't even know what I'm doing anymore

    I do agree with @GhostSnyper it's a terrible time to buy GPU or Ram. Right now it's even a terrible idea to build a gaming pc.

    When i bought my RX 580 it was 250$ and now the price is double a few days ago i even seen it going for 750$

    Price In 2017:


    Price Right Now.
