What the best card for Multi Monitor Display?

First let me say that I have never run a multi screen display for gaming before. What I'd like to know is, what kinda card will I need at minimum to run BF3, GW2 or other current titles at max resolution on a muli display? And what kinda problems can I expect to encounter regarding FPS etc? Im gonna go with a nvidia card so am I correct in guessing that is SLI an absolute must? if so where does the bar begin? gtx 680? will I need to OC the cards to get a smooth display on all 3 screens?

Also, is this more trouble than its worth? I saw it set up at best buy and was very impressed with how it looked but I don't want to drop significant cash only to buy myself a headache and a PITA.

Any thoughts or opinions would be much appreciated...

  1. BF3 is a tough call especially if you want to set the graphics settings to ultra.

    In all honesty, you are looking at the nVidia GTX 690.

  2. wow, thank you for that chart. Do you run a 3 monitor set up? if so, was it worth the extra expense?
  3. Nope. I don't have a 3 monitor setup. I only use 2 monitors, but not for games. Playing on 1 monitor is fine for me, I don't want to spend $1,000 on a graphics card. Besides I tend to buy pretty expensive monitors so I don't want to spend another $900 - $1,300 for a 3rd monitor on top of a nVidia GTX 690.
