I sold my old rig to start on a new fancy 3 monitor eyefinity setup. However I have not kept up too closely with stuff that has changed since my last build, so I figured I would come here and get some advice. I am wanting the eyefinity/gaming at high resolutions, to be the main focus of this build. Here is what I have currently selected:

Case: Corsair 600t
Powersupply: Corsair Modular 650w Professional Series
Motherboard: Asrock z68 Extreme4 Gen3 LGA 1155
CPU: i5 2500k
CPU Fan/Heatsink: Coolermaster V8
RAM: Kingston HyperX Grey Series 8gb (2 x 4gb)
Graphics Card: Sapphire Toxic 6950 2gb
HDDs: 750gb WD Caviar Black
60gb Corsair Force Series 3 SSD as a boot drive
Monitor- 3x 21.5 Acer S211HLbd LED monitors

How well do you think this rig would run ultra high resolutions for games?

I think that would probably manage most games on mid settings @ 5760x1080. What i would do though is try to get another HD 6950 2GB in there. Possibly get a cheaper hard drive and CPU cooler. Maybe lose the SSD. Either way i think youre going to need 2 of those to play at ultra high settings.

Do you think the 650w corsair pro psu would handle the the two 6950s? The case and the psu are already purchased.

And a single 6950 would not be able to run al ot of games with high settings with 5760x1080 resolution? That saddens me greatly.

I think a decent 750W unit would handle them both and overclocking tbh. Don't HD 6950's eat less power than GTX 560Ti's? And people usually get 650-750W for 2 of those.

If your going 3 monitor setup here I would suggest doing 2- 580's or 2- 6970's. Yes it's a bit more but IMO if your going 3 monitor set up then armrest run all games at high to MAX settings. I'm in the car so I can't get you prices but the 580 is around $450ish each bur again... Much better gaming experience.

Btw this will give you ultra settings :)

Its really an open budget. The more expensive the parts, the longer its going to take me to save money. At this point though, I think I may yield better progress in this build if I go with one big monitor at 1920x1200 rather than a 3 monitor eyefinity setup.
