  1. I'm not sure the GTX 4 GB offers any value over a cheaper 7970 3 GB even at that resolution. Would be nice if somebody had any benches to show.
  2. Do you mean 3 X 2560X1600 monitors? That would require 3 or 4 680's!
  3. To achieve those kinds of frame rates at those settings your going to need 2x GTX680 or 2x 7970's at least

    e.g to get BF3 to run at ultra settings @ 5760x1080 i had to install a 2nd 7970
  4. I would suggest 2 7970 3gb cards. For that resolution it's cheaper and will deliver similar performance.
