Best Graphics Card for TRI-eyefinity/3D surround? Only have Dell 17" with 1280x1024 Resolution

After doing research for my 3 dell monitors. ."no chance in hell of getting better"

I need help with getting Eyefinity and/or 3D surround .. and a possibility or Crossfirex/sli ..

Only 3 DELL Monitrs VGa.. and a DVI adapter for one so far

At only 1280x1024 res.. ( which makes it easier load for the card..)

Here are my ideas ..

**Two of these ?

Which are best from BEST to least. Mind you I have an Asus HD6450 1 GB silent + 8400gs, not that great but it's ok

so which would be better for 3 monitors? I will take care of the PSU .. my specs are currently.. 970A-G46 MSI .. 8GB ram .. AMD FX 6300 ... so I can run current BF4 game and like crysis 3.. tri monitor.. on low-med at least... (being the most demanding) and again I don't game super much at much at all or hardcore.

BTW budget IS 150.00 may can push to 170..00 like ask for more money.

PS. if you are gonna be death and ignore the fact that I will not buy new monitors cause I sort of can\'t then at least still give me the best to least.... Thanks

  6. Aitte in that case within 170 you can attain a 750ti or 750 260x or 265x. These are the best within your budget.

    And that should all be gravy at only 3840x1280 and med if not ultra? no lag? minor lag?
