Hey all,
I'm curious as to what the best GPU for running Eyefinity or Surround(either works because from what I've read they both hasve their pluses and minuses). No real price range since I'm curious to just start saving for it. Any help will be appreciated.

You need power, so the better cards should be on your list, a GTX 770 4GB would be my suggestion. You may even need to consider a dual card setup if you want to game at high settings. Rule out AMD because their drivers do not support Crossfire frame pacing on multiple monitors.

Would that be a better option than like a 670 4gb? or a 760 4gb?

If you just stay with a single card solution don't rule out amd since the hd7970 comes stock with 3 GB and a 386 bit memory bus which helps a lot on high res and multiple monitors.

You have to pick your budget first, then get the most card (or cards) you can afford. If at all possible, I wouldn't compromise on a lower performing card. You're going to be asking a lot of your system with multiple monitors.

Now, you should be keeping dual card setups in the mix. A pair of GTX 760 4GB's for just over $500 would get the job done nicely. There's a lot to consider, but first decide how much you can spend.

Okay, I have another question. I have two 20" 1600x monitors and a 23" 1080p monmitor currently ( only the 23 currently hooked up) If I hooked up the two 20's would that over strain my graphics card. I have a 760 GTX OC at the moment (2GB) but I'd only be gaming on the 23" and using the other two for just web browsers and chats. Is that doable?

Yes you should be able to do this with no problem. I run a 7950 with 4x monitors attached. For games that dont work well in EyeFinity I usually will have video playing on one or more of my other monitors. Running small things on your other monitors while gaming shouldnt have any noticeable performance hits.

Awesome! Thank you! I'm going to save money for now until I can afford a 3-4GB GPU to do surround/eyefinity and then work from there!
