I currently have this build:
i5 3570k @ 4.8 GHZ
Maximus IV Extreme -Z
XFX 7970 Double D Black Edition (Original one before revamp)
16GB 1333Mhz Ram
NH-D14
Haf 932
Corsair K90
Logitech G600
120GB SSD - boot
3TB HDD -everything else
120GB HDD -steam
120GB HDD -origin

So here is the story, I am going to be upgrading to a triple monitors set-up for gaming and multitasking. To be exact 3 of these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
I want to be able to max most games at playable framerates. (5760 x 1080)
Playable as in never dropping under 80-90FPS.

Now obviously, I will need a card with a lot of VRAM, so I was thinking about the next gen AMD dual GPU card. I need the card in may.
Basically here are my choices:

1. 2 R9 290X's in CF
2. 1x amd 8990/R9 295X/Dual GPU card
3. 1x Next Titan/790

Thanks!
And again, I need this card in the start of may so I can wait.
Eventually I could If I get choice 2, upgrade to CF when it goes on sale.

A single 290x should do the trick just fine :p

You are saying that a single R9 290X will max most games (BF4 included) at at least 90 FPS at 5760 X 1080?
I don't think so.

A single 290x will run three 1080p monitors+bf4 ultra settings at a playable frame-rate. Get two if you want to achieve 80-90fps. Sorry, should have read though a little more of your post.

I was originally planning on going tri-fire. But I decided to sell my 7970 and go for the new cards.

Hope i'm not yet to late... I have 2x Gigabyte 7970Ghz in crossfire
I run battlefield at 5760 x 1080 @ about 75-80fps on high settings
I am currently on the 13.12 AMD drivers.and I have a i5 3570K clocked at 4.3Ghz
Although BF4 wont let me use MSI afterburner OSD is think my fps are getting capped by my CPU and not the 7970s
because when I alt+tab I see my CPU was running at 100% capacity and my 7970s were in the 90-95-10% capacity range... although don't shoot me for getting the last numbers wrong as I wasn't able to see it ingame...

Hope I helped!

You are too late because I have the monitors, I still have one of my 7970's and I am not too unhappy with the performance on medium.
I am going to be upgrading in may top the next dual gpu solution.
