I will have an ASUS P67 mobo with a i5 2500k and a 750 watt PSU.
I also will have 3x 1080p monitor.

I wanted to know which I should get?
EVGA GTX 570 Classified SLI or Sapphire 6950 Toxic Xfire or MSI 6970 Lightning Xfire

The 570 cost about $720 total and the 6950 cost about $580 and the 6970 cost about $710
I can spend around the cost of a GTX 590 (~750?)

I plan to play BF3 in 5760 x1080

Let me know your thoughts

Also, 580 SLI cost too much and 590 doesn't seem as fast as those options while the 6990 sound likes a fighter jet

I really do need help. I hate general info about a standard card when the manufacture changes the clock to give you better speed but doesn't really tell you how much improvement you actually get.

You should get 2 6950's and make sure they BOTH have 2gigs of video ram for your resolution, eyefinity with 2 of those will dominate for the price, should be about 500 bucks for the vi cards. the 6950 is almost as fast as the 6970, u wont notice the diffrence and same a lot more money than with the 570...

2 6950's in xfire and make sure they are 4 gigs of v ram TOTAL

Have fun :D !

Why did you misguide this person?

The 570sli is a better choice, in my opinion :) 

But, either way the guy will be happy.
