I currently have a EVGA GTX 670 FTW 2GB , was thinking if it is possible to run a TRI-Screen 27 inch , 1920 by 1080p monitor. I know it definitely can run TRI Screen but will I hit low fps on games etc?

There is 4 ports , 2 DVI , 1 HDMI and displayport , so which port should i use to connect the 3 27inch monitors

If extended res over 3 screens I would suggest another one for SLI.

Get a second card, although it runs most games at 60fps at 1080p, thats at a single screen.

I always recommend to just use DVI ports for your monitors, simple and cheap cables to get, and its easy to find anywhere. They also work up to 2560x1600 resolutions as compared to 1920x1200 on HDMI.

Two cards would really help you out with 3 monitors.

it will work....but a second would def. keep your min framerate up .....it also depends on your settings as well

Is it just not good enough to game on TRI screen max settings?

Definitely not. No single card currently can do that. It really depends on the games, I'm really just assuming really graphically intensive games, such as Battlefield 3, Metro 2033, Crysis, ,etc.

Do you mean selling your 670 and getting a 680 4GB? If you did that, and really wanted to go with Nvidia route, and have a 3 monitor setup, you should probably get 4 GB of video ram. I feel this is too much, which is why I feel that the HD 7970 GHZ Edition (Which currently now performs better than a 680 at Battlefield 3, a Nvidia preferred game, due to the new 12.11 beta drivers -- I personally have gotten a good 10% increase on most things in general), is a much better buy, especially being cheaper than the 4GB 680, and not too overkill on the video ram. The 680 simply doesn't have the memory bandwidth to actually like.. fully utilise the 4GB of video ram.

Honestly, if you were up to sell your 670 FTW, it might be worthwhile to get a decent 7970 GHZ, such as a 3 GB Sapphire Vapor X version, or even a 7970 Matrix if your into overclocking (Of course this is a lottery)

:heink:  are you seriously considering selling your 670 because the 7970 is out preforming it by 8% to 10% it's not that big of a deal i think maybe your seeing all the fanboys talk on the forums right now and letting it get to you which is what they want most because it makes them feel like big men most are little guys teenagers and they think it's cool to belittle people and there cards you should ignore it

Which is why I originally said to SLI it. How about you actually use some full stops there buddy.

I was only recommending an AMD card because of eyefinity, and I only got that idea because he said he might sell his 670 (when he asked what we thought of a 670 or 680 4GB). I thought, "well if he's running on three monitors, especially with the 12.11 drivers, which work a charm, and hes considering selling his card, why not go for AMD".

Don't worry about the full stops thing Bigcyco, its just it takes a whole breath to read that entire paragraph you wrote before, its no hassle.

Makes sense. I do not understand why someone would sell 670. AMD new drivers sure they are very good and gave a very nice boost but that is expected to happen both ways sooner or later. I think he should get 7970 if he wants to do three way set up though or maybe get another 670 run sli. I try a single 670 on three 27-inch monitor running at 2,560x1,440-pixel resolution, t it was not pretty :(  :lol:

Well, I doubt you are going to be gaming on two screens, you'll be gaming on one, with a second screen to do whatever you want on (Depends on game). It'll barely affect you, if not at all.

Three screens is where it creates performance issues.
