  1. what we need to know:
    processor:
    Ram:
    Monitor resolutions:
    what you consider an 'acceptable' fps (eg 30, 60, 120):

    Only the highest end GPUs can do tripple head gaming with decent frame rates, but we need to know if there are going to be any other system bottlenecks.
  2. processor: AMD Phenom II X6
    Ram:i think 8 gb
    i have 3, 21.5 inch monitors
    i would love 50 fps per screen
  3. I'd suggest HD7970, because it supports 3 monitors. Else it would be GTX570 SLI, but it would cost around $650..
  4. So the Hd7970 would work with my computer in the pci-e x16 slot
  5. Yes it would. Though, what is your power supply? I needs at least 500-600W quality unit.
  6. Ohhh Its only 450
  7. Best answer
    No no no no no no no no...

    Get a quality Corsair, Seasonic or Antec unit, like:

    If you don't have budget for it, drop the card down to HD6970 for 3 monitor support and lower price.
