Would have answered different had he asked for nvidia solution, presuming that somebody tasked with building a $3000 or more machine knows what he is doing! samuelspark a b U Graphics card November 4, 2011 10:53:14 AM 2 x 6990 which can be changed into 4x 6970. ilysaml a c 143 U Graphics card November 4, 2011 11:01:33 AM I vote for the 3 x HD 6970, the 2 HD 6990s will run hotter and noisy. Also much trouble with Quadfire. i always recommend 3-way CF for Eyefinity. ilysaml a c 143 U Graphics card November 4, 2011 11:05:54 AM Quote:2x 3GB GTX 580's are all he needs really. GTX 580 is 20% faster than GTX 570, AMD 6K series scales better in Crossfire than nVidia GTX 5k series, so if you compare 3x HD 6970 VS 3x GTX 580 the HD 6970s win. Besides, Eyefinity = AMD rolli59 a c 1255 U Graphics card November 4, 2011 11:06:38 AM Still want to hear what CPU this is going to be matched with? ilysaml a c 143 U Graphics card November 4, 2011 11:08:15 AM a Core i7 2600K @ 5.0 GHz is able to drive 4-way GTX 580 hunuok a b U Graphics card November 4, 2011 11:09:20 AM For Eyefinity (ie AMD), Tri Crossfire is the sweet spot. HD6990+HD6970. For NV Surround (ie NVIDIA), Tri SLI is the sweet spot. 3 x GTX580 3Gb. In both instances, the 4th GPU will give you diminishing returns in terms of performance. From memory, ~4% increase for the 4th GPU. If cost is no barrier, 2 x HD6990. rolli59 a c 1255 U Graphics card November 4, 2011 11:10:13 AM @OP what CPU are you matching this with? rolli59 a c 1255 U Graphics card November 4, 2011 11:11:44 AM Quote:i5 2500k at least surely....
