Hey guys,

Was wondering what your opinions were on the most efficient way to get 120+fps on a 5760X1080 setup. Specifically in regard to which is the most efficient Nvidia GPU set up to achieve this. I have X3 AW2310 120hz screens.

My current set up is i7 930 OC'd to 4ghz and 6gb 2133hz RAM. I am looking for advice on what Nvidia GPUs I should use to run these screens playing BF3 @ 120+ fps. Also whether you think my CPU or RAM is a bottle neck?

Cheers,
JM

Mission impossible, even with quad HD7970 or dual GTX690.

Haha I see :( 

Well then, let me review and rephrase. What is the most cost effective route to maximum FPS with out SLIing GTX 690s?

I was considering SLi EVGA 680 FTW 4gb X2

That would be a great solution and it would have great performance.

Though, I'd suppose you'd get more performance/price ratio out of SLId GTX 670s :) . But if you can afford GTX 680s, definitely go for them.

I've read conflicting information comparing average and large amounts of VRAM in GPUs being used to power large resolutions. Is there a solid consensus as to whether a large capacity of VRAM is beneficial greatly in a large resolution display? Say 4Gb (SLI 670s) Vs 8gb(sli 680s)...

The 670s are clocked at the same boost and core speeds on the EVGA cards, so it's hard to tell how worth while the performance boost will be for the extra few hundred.

Has anyone come across a 5760X1080 comparison for SLi 680s with 4gb VRAM Vs. SLi 670s with 2gb VRAM?

I guess im basically torn between the 690, SLi 680s 4GB or even maybe something like the EVGA FTW edition 670s in SLi or something like that.

For 5760x1080 you definitely want to SLI 4GB cards, whether it's GTX 680 or GTX 670. Also, SLIing doesn't double your memory: 4 GB + 4 GB is still 4 GB of VRAM.

So the choices would be the 690 or SLIing 4GB versions of the 670 and 680 GPUs?

Thanks for your help, which would you choose?

I would not choose GTX 690, as it has only 2GB of VRAM per GPU (even though it's being advertised as 4 GB).

I'd choose SLI 4GB GTX 680 if I could afford it.

Thanks so much for your help! :) 

Which brand do you think is the nicest for this card?

I think MSI Twin Frozr is very nice one.
