I am looking to pick up another GTX 480 but when I was seeing the sizes of both combined I was wondering what computer cases would fit two of them.

My case is a Cooler Master Elite 431 Plus - Mid Tower Computer Case.

If possible what other cards could I SLI or Crossfire to get results like Dual SLI GTX 480s.

Why not get a single card that is more powerful? On average, the SLI GTX 480 will only yield an average of 115-120% in performance over a single GTX 480.

Would agree with above given how old a GTX480 is I would think you would be better off to pick up a single card from Nvidia's GTX 6xx or AMD's 7xxx line instead.

Well, I am looking to display three monitors instead of the current 2 I have now. I will check the GTX 600 Series as well as the 7000s.

AMD may be better. Their cards have higher VRAM. What country do you live in? What is your budget?

I live in the United States and my Budget is around $100 - $200

I found that the Radeon HD 7790 is a good card, but will it support 3 monitors?

I recommend the Asus GeForce GTX 660. But if you want free games, then Sapphire Dual-X Radeon HD 7850.

You can run triple monitors with the HD 7790 as well as the cards that I listed. However, I suggest that you do not game on triple monitors. The resolution would be way too much for these cards to handle. Unless it is not a graphically-intensive game.

Ok thanks for the info. I'll be sure to check the details on these cards to see which one I want most.
