How much extra graphics horsepower do 3 monitors need as opposed to 1? Tags: Radeon Monitors Power Graphics Last response: September 13, 2010 12:50 AM in Graphics & Displays Share tom thumb September 13, 2010 12:04:49 AM Originally I thought that with 3 monitors, you need 3x the power (let' s say 5870 = 3x 5750), but benchmarks say otherwise. With an eyefinity setup, how does the necessary hardware scale with # of monitors? Also, If I want to future-proof for gaming at 1920x1200 with 1 monitor, is a 5770 enough? If I have 3, will I be able to get by with a 5850? Thanks!
