I have 3 Samsung MD230s and it's a long story but Samsung is replacing my two broken 6950's. I'm looking to upgrade to one powerful card that can run 3 monitors for gaming that is around 500-600 bucks. My monitors support DVI and Displayport and I can't seem to find a single card that can support these monitors. Thanks!

Hi levisalmon,

It sounds to me like you're looking to run an eyefinity display on a single card that will be reliable and let you play most, if not all games, on high to max detail.

The card below is a good solution for your problem:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7970 OC 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card (11197-01-40G) - $479.99

Please note that to be able to run eyefinity you will need a mini-display port - DVI active adapter.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

StarTech MDP2DVIS Mini DisplayPort to DVI Active Adapter - $25.99

For max compatibility you are going to want to try and use all DVI.

Monitor 1 - Mini DP - DVI w/ DVI - DVI Input

Monitor 2 - HDMI to DVI input

Monitor 3 - DVI to DVI input.



Best of luck,

Shinseina

Is there any card that can get my 60 fps on BF3 Ultra at 5760 x 1080?

The GTX 690 could do that, but for that kind of performance at such a high resolution on a gpu heavy game like BF3, you are going to be looking at needing SLI/Crossfire.
