Honestly, if you really want to do a triple monitor setup then go big or go home.
Intel i5 2500k OC to 4.5 Ghz
AMD 6990 or Nvidia GTX 590
Well above your budget but that is what it takes if you want to get 60+ fps on the highest settings. Triple monitors really do make that much of a difference. 3x the resolution requires 3x the graphics horsepower.
I could probably sacrifice max settings as it is the IDEAL computer for me... I'd really rather stick with my AMD choice so i don't have to spend too much on intel. With the parts that i currently have selected, the total cost so far is $1,615.84 with all the accessories and such.
Dont know if im to late here, But you know Skyrim does not support Eyefinity yet... I tried to set it up using other software but it did not work wery well, menues got messed up and caracter creasion for example, you cant see the character etc...
Dont know if betasheda will ever support Eyefinity in Skyrim, but I think you will have to wait a while for a good third party tool for that game. Kind of similar to witcher 2, it is tools out there, but the results isent exactly perfect...
On a Sidenote... It was said bigger the better for Eyefinity?... Well... It really depends how much space you got, atleast if your putting your screens in Panorama.
I bought 3x27" monitors, and I was getting a headdace and a sore neck from turning my head because I was sitting way to Close, So I whent off and bought myself a HUGE desk (It got pretty expencive), Now I wish I got 30" or bigger... It Really depends on how far away from the monitors you are sitting.
