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.
