Just now I have a gigabyte radeon r9 270x http:// 2GB graphics card and I was thinking about upgrading to the the evga gtx 770 2GB or 4GB graphics card for £330. http://.

So to get to the point do you thinks it's worth it

What resolution and refresh rate is the monitor you game on? What type of games do you play. Has performance been lacking on the R9 270X? That's a pretty new card, I would only upgrade if the 270X is not powerful enough to play your games at a the desired settings.

When you play games is it just on the center monitor or do you play in Eyefinity where the image is stretched across all three?

That's a lot of pixels for one 770. You would need to dial the settings down for it to run smoothly.

Well technically if you upgrade it would be an nvidia GPU so you would be running Surround and not Eyefinity (which is AMD naming).

It might not be a terrible idea to just get a 2nd R9 270X if you want to run Eyefinity. You might have to upgrade your PSU though. I'm not sure if AMD ever fixed their microstuttering issues with crossfire cards so you should look into that. But 2x 270X would be better than 1x 770 on three screens.
