Card(s) Needed to Max Out 2560X1600 Display?

Okay experts. I am getting a new system with a 2560X1600 30 inch monitor and I want ALL games to run maxed out at 60+ FPS. What is the best solution? As of now I think I can pull this off with a crossfire pair of 7950's.

Will this work? (maxed out)

Any other solutions?

Any cheaper solutions?

  1. It really depends on the games you play. One 7970 should be enough, if you overclock it, for most games.
  2. I run 2560x1440 with a single GTX 580 at stock speeds. So far it runs every game if thrown at it on max settings.
    I dont get 80-100fps, but 40-70fps. Still makes for very nice playings.

    Some games will also tax your CPU, so make sure you have a good one. my old i7 980x works great (again at stock speeds).
  3. So wait are you asking what the "best" way or the cheapest way ? or the dollar to performance ? Cause sure your 7950 xfire should work, so would 7970 xfire, or maybe 7870 tri fire.

    The best/fastest solution might be a $1000 GTX690.
    The GTX680 sli under the hood can be very fast.

    But, I would try a much cheaper GTX680 with a factory overclock.
    I think you would find it very effective.
    I have two such 2560 x 1600 monitors, and have no problem with a stock GTX680 gaming on one.
    I get a steady 60fps on civ 4, but I can't say how it would do on different games.

    If budget is not an issue, then you could always add a second one later.
