Trying to decide if I should grab a couple more 680s for quad sli, or just stick to 2 (which handle most games fine) and wait until the end of the year to see if a new flagship comes out. It it's not expected until spring 2013, then I won't wait and just grab the 680s.

Why do I need 4 cards. 3 monitors, and 3D. I only average 35 FPS in max payne at max settings on my high end setup. Basically whatever FPS you get at a 5760 x 1080p res is halved when you enable 3D. :o

There will not be a new flagship until q1 2013 by my estimation. There is a gtx 660 ti coming out mid august but that is it as far as I know and nobody thinks that they will do a new flagship chip before 2013.

after the 660ti, nvidia will be designing their next flagship model. dont expect it until 2013 as amd will also release their next gen models around the same time as well

Lol, You handle most games fine? SLI 680's completely obliterate any game in the market probably for the next 2+ years

Oh, nvm didn't read the end of you post..Is 3D vision awesome/worth it? And when you using the 3 monitor set up doesn't the actual physical black part that seperates the TV's bother You? I think I would rather just get one of the giant 30"+ monitors that can do 2440X1440 resolution as opposed to having to deal with the monitor seperation. See, the way I see it is that 5670x1080 isn't necessarily a clearer resolutions as it is just an 1080p stretched really wide?
