I'm looking for a graphics card to run a 3 screen setup. 3x 19 inch 1280x1024 - so not high resolutions.

I'm going to be mostly do graphic design with some video editing. However, I'd like the option of doing some 3 screen gaming, generally on older games - GTA iv, fallout 3, HL2 with moderate settings.

What's the best option for me? Considering the 7770 - rather not pay an extra £50 for a noisier card - but will if I need to.

The monitors are all VGA currently with dvi to VGA convertors, and I'm planning an active display port to VGA. Will that be a problem?

7850 is faster, its not loud at all if you buy a aftermaket cooler, and not use the stock coolers.

but, you might have to turn down the settings for some of your games.

You'll want a 2GB 7850 for what you are doing.

Not a lot really. Don't want to annoy the wife too much- probably max £150. I can get a 7850 for £125 sapphire 2gb 2 fans.

Will that be okay with my system: 550W Gigabyte Superb 550P Power Supply Intel DP43TF Motherboard with a Q9550 processor and 6gb of RAM, 2 Sata HDDs. Planning on upgrading at some point, but was unimpressed with Haswell for desktops - so I'll probably wait a year.
