Quick Question about 2x6950 for triple monitor set up?

I am in the process of ordering parts for a new gaming system. I'd like to run the eyefinity with 3 monitors. However looking at the prices of monitors it seems that all the resolutions above 1920 x 1080 are HUGE. So knowing this if I want to get a monitor at 1920 x 1080, still running 3, should I still use 2x6950's or bring it down to one card? Or are there some cheap awesome high res monitors that I don't know about? Also any reccomendations on what would be some good monitors for this set up on newegg? I'm willing to spend a couple hundred per monitor but not 1000 a monitor like I was seeing. Thanks a lot, and have a good weekend!

  1. one HD 6950 will handle up to 5 monitors one Eyefinity, in addition if you want to hook up 3 monitors one of them must support Display Port, 2 HD 6950s in CF mode would be better for high resolution and better FPS when running Eyefinity, check this out

  2. thanks for your reply ilysaml, so even though I'm not getting a higher resolution monitor it wont be overkill to run 2x 6950s? Also I watched the video and the guy kind of confused me, I think I need the stuff in front of me to know what to do. I was thinking of getting 3 of these monitors

    i meant by higher resolution 5760x1080.... 2560 × 1600 is a higher resolution as well. Even if you don't run Eyefinity and you will be sufficient with a 30" @ 2560 × 1600 you still need to run the crossfire for better FPS and high quality visuals including AA and v.sync on.
    yes these 3 monitors will work on Eyefinity just ensure to have a mini display port to DVI or HDMI adapter to hock up the third monitor (2 in DVIs, third one in the Mini DP- to DVI adapter)

    if you think that higher resolution (5780 ×1080) is going to kill you GPUs ? No, as i said before a single HD 6950 will handle them just fine but you need the crossfire for the better performance :)
