WHAT GPU? Help!

I am building a gaming PC that will more than likely have 3 monitors. (Unless there is a good reason not to get three) but I am having trouble choosing a GPU. The games I will be playing will be played at MAX settings at 1920x180x3. I will be playing lots of Crysis 3 so I will need a high end GPU in order to get 60+ FPS while settings are maxed out. I am a big fan of the NVIDIA cards, so if you stick to that, it would be great. But if you feel there is an AMD card that delivers a bang for the buck that would be fine. Any reccomendations?

  1. Edit: 2 gtx 780's in SLI is your cheapest option. Although you will not get a full 60 fps.

    You would probably need 3 of them to get your desired performance.

    Personally I would suggest a single 2560x1440p monitor, but it's really just a certain taste.

    Anyways, you should be looking at at least a 680 SLI if not a 780 SLI to play at maxed settings at 5760x1080.

    Ditto that. 3 monitor gaming is really expensive
  4. you wont get good frame rates with 3 monitors even with 2 780s. also crysis 3 is cpu hungry. what cpu do you have?

    I am not quite sure whether I should go with the 4770k or 3930k.

    I like the speed and OC of the 4770k, but the six cores in the 3930k will help for video editing and rendering.
