I want to use multiple monitors, but I don't need an extreme gaming video card. I will be using 3d CAD. I need it to be sli/crossfirex capable. which one would be best for me? limit: $100

3d CAD? go for an Nvidia Quadro. What ever is in that price range. Gaming video cards will not work as well for you as they don't have the extensions used by 3D cad software to accelerate that type of work.

No offense but OP said $100... none of the professional GPUs are even remotely close to that budget.

The cheapest quadro card I can find is closest to $500.

I'm not doing CAD constantly, just on occasion for high school. I don't need a professional GPU that will do amazing 3D CAD with no strain at all.

basically, the only card you can get with $100 is 7750. You MIGHT find rebates/discounts for 7770.

stretch it for the 7770. It's worth the extra $ from the 7750 and can be found for $100-140.
