well multiple monitors uses VRAM, and I had the EVGA GTX 760 4gb and when I ran tri-monitor I notice a little slack in my frames on LoL. I would say the 2GB model would greatly decrease your FPS especially on ultra settings.

I'd gowith something that doesn't have your cores disabled IE GK104 is the same processor used for like 4-5 different cards..

Physicaly you could run them.

But experience depends on several factors, resolution of the monitors, game you use, etc...

On 5760 resolution (3x1920) and demanding games like, BF3, Crysis, etc... you could not even use High if you want playable framerates.

Can you run three monitors with a single GTX760? Yes. Can you run games at Ultra settings with a single GTX760? No. There are several limitations that are involved. VRAM buffer of 2GB is not enough to play games at the higher resolutions used whenever playing games in surround mode and the GTX760 is not powerful enough to play most modern games at higher resolutions and still maintain a playable frame rate - even with the in-game graphics settings turned down. For example, in order to play Crysis 3 at 5760 x 1080 surround resolution (three 1920 x 1080 monitors) at Ultra settings you would need three 4GB DDR5 GTX770s (or higher model) in order to have enough graphics processing power and VRAM to do so. If you drop the graphics settings to medium, you might be able to play the game using only two GTX 770 cards (or higher model), but would still need the larger VRAM buffer size.

Another consideration is that you may need to also upgrade your power supply in order to run two or three graphics cards in an SLI configuration.

The bottom line is that surround gaming is not an entry level decision and requires the individual gamer to seriously consider spending thousands of dollars to enjoy such a setup.


alright, thanks mate :D  but do you think that GPU is enough for modern games to run on ultra settings?

Definitely if you are just running one or two monitors and the other monitor is idle (not showing video or anything) you should be able to run most games on high/ultra settings.

Holy BS. Im not sure what the 760 can or cannot do on the three monitors but my 2gb 770 does in fact run 3 monitors at 5760 x 1080 on ultra settings and with a very occasional dip below 40, maintains 55 to 60 fps.

20 fps at most.

Ofc if you are talking that you get 60fps at your browser game....

Really? I have an EVGA 2gb superclocked 770, and was planning to set up a surround. I was afraid i would need 3 770's, maybe ill hold off until i get the monitors first though
