Replacing 2 x 8800 GTS

Hi,

I am currently running a Dual Nvidia 8800 GTS cards powering three 27" monitors running at 1920*1200 that I use primarily for Web, Business & Photoshop based work and the occasional gaming on the center screen. They are not SLI'ed as 1 card feeds 2 monitors and 1 card feeds the primary in the middle.

I am building a new system with an Intel i2600k with 16GB Ram on a Asus P8Z68 Deluxe and think it is about time that I upgraded my graphics card/s - I would prefer not to have two cards and power all three monitors from one card as I am not bothered about multi screen gaming (Eyefinity - I think AMD call it), but I still would like to be able to have a blast gaming once in a while.

I expect that I can spend up to £150 to £200 on a single graphics card and would liek the option to SLI / Crossfire them when I can afford to add another unless I need two from the beginning.

Can anyone recommend a setup based on these needs?

TIA

If you want to run three monitors from a single card then you will have to stick with ATi/AMD cards.

Can the GTX 560 run 3 monitors?
