Video Card + Display Advice - going to 3 monitor set-up Tags: Graphics Cards Monitors Graphics Last response: October 2, 2012 11:56 PM in Graphics & Displays Share hop2it October 2, 2012 8:38:01 PM Hi, I am currently running an Intel Core i5-2500k quad core 3.3Ghz, and an GTX 570 HD Superclocked 1280 MB GDDR5 video card. Performance wise, my goal is to be able to play BF2 + Borderlands 2 with a three monitor set-up. Practically, I do a fair amount of trading and want to be able to run 5-6 monitors of charts etc. I am going to swap out the 570 and am considering either the 660ti or the 670 x 2 (i.e. run in SLI) and in particular 1. 660ti - $300 per 2. 670 2gb $375 per 3. 670 4GB superclocked EVGA $434 per. Any thoughts on the price/performance trade-off on these options? As well, does anyone have any suggestions re: approximately 24" monitors - both in respect of type (LCD/PLASMA/LED) and manufacturer? Any thoughts/suggestions appreciated.

Would you consider it worth it to go 680 (2gb) x 2 for $475 vs. the 670? Also would be interested to know if now is a good time to buy, or if their is a refresh or upgrade of these cards due. | Report abuse dingo07 Graphics card Expert October 2, 2012 8:50:55 PM depends on WHICH 670 you are talking about... there's tons of them with varying levels of performance | Report abuse hop2it October 2, 2012 9:04:05 PM EVGA GeForce GTX 670 Superclocked+ 4GB GDDR5 (04G-P4-2673-KR) nVidia GeForce GTX 670 Chipset (1046Mhz) 4GB GDDR5 (6008Mhz) Dual Display 2x DVI-I/HDMI/Display Port PCI Express 3.0 Graphics Card... http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=4... Wouldn't the same principal apply to the 680, as well... i.e. tons of models, varying levels of performance? I'm just looking for some general advice, once I decide 670 vs. 680 vs. 660ti, I will get into the details.... Currently at $300 a pop, the 660ti is where I'm leaning, I am only considering the 670/680 in the event they would future proof me to the point where they might justify the additional cost. | Report abuse dingo07 Graphics card Expert October 2, 2012 11:56:29 PM I suggest you look at the Tom's GPU charts - IMO the 670 or better 680 is the future-proof prices will continue to fall as the holidays come around | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>Video Card + Display Advice - going to 3 monitor set-up> Related ressources: ForumSeeking Advice on Triple Monitor Display Setup ForumI want an advice for graphic card and monitors for two- display setup ForumNeed Advice on how to setup a 12 display setup for Stock Market Work.
