I currently have an HP desktop (model number h8-1222).
Specs:
GPU-Radeon HD 7670 1GB
CPU-Intel i7-2600
Motherboard-IPISB-CH2
RAM-8GB DDR3-1333
PSU-300W
HDD-2TB

I am running two 1080p 22.5in monitors and a 768p 32in TV monitor. I have another 900p 20in monitor that I am trying to connect as well, when I purchase another GPU. I use my computer for gaming and watching youtube constantly. I also edit/record videos (or atleast I am trying to). Whenever I record, I get sudden FPS drops. I record with fraps and I go from 20-29 FPS to 1-5 FPS. Now, I plan on making the following upgrades.

Case-Azza Genesis 9000B
PSU-Ultra LSP750 750-Watt
RAM-8GB (additional)

Now, I am torn between a few GPU's.
1) EVGA GeForce GTX 760 Video Card - 4GB
2) EVGA GeForce GTX 760 Video Card - 2GB
3) EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Signature 2 3GB

Based on the information I have given, can anyone recommend the best choice for what I am trying to accomplish. Thank you in advance.

Go with the best one you can afford, in this case, GTX 760 4GB.

EDIT: Actually, you should upgrade the power supply before you do anything because 300W is pushing it. 500W at the minimum, but no more than 650W

I'm going to get everything at once so it's all just one install. Also, I was recommended the Asus HD7950 on a different forum. If you have any opinions or recommendations, I would love to hear them
