For my build I'm considering buying a XFX R9 280X (for £215) and using it for eyefinity setup.

The only thing I'm concerned about is how capable it will be. Of course I wont be getting 60+FPS Ultra, that's obvious, but I was hoping for more of a medium/high fps and quality. I was thinking if I did buy one, down the line I could buy another one and run it in crossfire. Hopefully then I would see some above average results.

Anyway, what do you guys think? Should I buy the card, and if I need to, buy another in the future, or should I change the card overall?

I run a 7970 (which was rebranded to the 280X, no difference other than firmware) and it runs triple 1080p Eyefinity in modern games fine. Its going to depend on how sensitive you are to FPS, but its definitely playable.

Awesome! Thanks for that, it made my mind up. I wont be playing too many intensive or demanding games. But I'm glad the card will be able to handle it fairly well!
