Triple Screen Gaming with 7770 or 7850

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?

  1. 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.

    How much are the aftermarket coolers?
  3. What's your budget? I will find a good aftermarket cooler and gpu for you.
  4. 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.
