Thanks, Mike More about : gtx 780s pb27q8 monitors prudhvirazz December 22, 2013 12:40:38 PM Yes 2 780s will do more than required. 780s have enough display ports. each has One Dual Link DVI-I, One Dual Link DVI-D, One HDMI, One DisplayPort. so 2 you will have 2 ports of the above. 2x Dual Link DVI-I, 2x Dual Link DVI-D, 2x HDMI, 2x DisplayPort. make sure you buy the compatible moniotors like 2 HDMI and 1 DVI-I/D.

I see you prefer 1440p not 1080p. back to the topic. 2 x 780s will do the job. have fun good config you have. m 0 l dbdev December 23, 2013 12:50:12 PM For a much lower cost, I could do 2 x GTX760s in SLI - http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... Hopefully I can still max out the game video settings with the three Asus VN279QLs 1080p monitors. m 0 l Best solution prudhvirazz December 23, 2013 11:45:03 PM Yes even 3 760s can't beat 2 780s. thats why i said 2 780s will do more than required. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-760-vs-... 2 760s also will work fine at 1080p. But on ultra setting it will get shaky. 2 780s is ideal. 2 770s is required. 2 760s is sub-optimal. Share Can't find your answer ? Ask !
