    A 7950 is a good buy. Dont get 2 though, 1) 550W isnt enough power. 2) it is overkill for 768x1366.
    You probably wont be able to future proof since a new DX will be released in the meantime, and this will require a new GPU to play the latest games.
    Try to get a 7850 2GB cheap, AMD ended production of it today and it will probably be discounted.

    The 7950 is your best bet. Take my suggestions above though, dont get 2, your PSU cant handle it.
