Hello!
I am looking at two different set of graphic cards right now which is a single 690 or 3-way SLI 670, I will be doing some gaming, video editing, and animations. (:
Anyone know what would be better to get?
ps i know the 3 cards are about $300 more.
Thank you!

If you want to game on 3 monitors then get the 3way SLI. If not, then a 690 is the best you can get.

I don't like multiple GPUs but if you are using 3 monitors you have to use 2 or 3 GPUs.

Okay because right now I have only been using a laptop and an extra screen, but it is starting to slow down really fast.xD

I tried that. A good laptop and an extra monitor. Eventually my laptop had heat issues and I couldn't do it anymore. In the end I bought a desktop.

I was trying to play Battlefield 3 on my laptop with a separate monitor (all before I bought a desktop)...and I think my laptop issues, which needed service repair, due to the heat. My GPU simply couldn't keep up. I went from my laptop screen (1366x768) to a Dell (1920x1080) and my GPU must have been stressed out. I wouldn't recommend people connecting their laptop to a monitor for gaming. For movies and Word applications the second monitor is great, but not for games.
