Hi all,

I need to know the best graphics cards or graphics card for running 3 monitors while gaming on the highest possible settings and still getting good frame rates. The price needs to include decent cooling.

Power Supply : 650 WATT Corsair 80 plus PSU With Power Cable Supplied
Motherboard : Asus Z87 Pro
CPU : Intel I7 4th Gen 4770K Quad Core CPU 3.5Ghz (3.9Ghz Turbo)
Hard Drive : 240 SSD + 2000 GB SATA 3 7200 RPM
16gb DDR3 1866mhz Corsair Vengeance Memory

Thanks in advance, Lawson.

Gigabyte may cost a bit more, but the Windforce Cooler may be worth it.

Plus it should run with your current PSU.


That 290X card looks like a beast, especially with that cooler.

A 780ti is also a consideration since your budget is soo high. However I'm not sure if you'll be able to completely max out a game with a 3-screen setup on a 780ti or 290X regardless. You may have to sli/cf to completely max out a game and get doable fps

Its impractical to go and spend $1500 on a GPU nor the excessive exaggeration on its performance and cooling. Yes it has a closed loop however a custom water-cooled loop would cool much better. Plus im sure its out of his price range

This might sound really stupid but the r9 290x will run with intel wont it?

No I don't think it's good. AMD gets really hot. Unless you plan on water cooling both of em I'd suggest not going for sli

well I have 2 280Xs in CFX and they are fine, around 65-70 in games. The 290X does get hot though.

The TDP of a 280X is much, much lower than that of a 290X. A single one gets as hot as 2 or three 280Xs in CF for a reference design.

Why go 290x, just slightly overclock the 290 and you can achieve 290x....
