Do i need a two way sli ? nor just a singal graphics card??

I recently asked the same question but at that time i was planning to go with a triple monitor display with 3 x 42inch LCD hdmi tvs .
And the suggested card was 2 x GTX670's.

But now i decided to go with 3 x 27inch 3D monitors and i want to know what is the best graphic card / cards !

1)will a single gtx670 b enough for a triple monitor gaming setup with 3D and without 3D (2D) ? or should i go to a higher card like a gtx680 or gtx690 ? because i need some better fps

2)If i need 2 what graphics cards what do u guys prefer ?

im goin to buy a - Intel® Core™ i5-3570K.processor or some times a Intel® Core™ i7-3770K (because i dont know will a i7 make a difference or not..)
Asus P9X79 Pro mother board (SLI)
Kingston HyperX 16GB ram
900W psu
-and pls tel if u don't recommend any of the above specs .
Thanx :)))

  1. Depends, will you want to play them at full settings?
  2. Well I guess, minimum to be GTX 680 or 7970. Or best is to get GTX 690 or SLI GTX 680, X-fire 7970.
    GTX 690 will be able to handle 3 3D monitors.

    so u say that 2 x gtx 670 s cant get the job done isnt it ? ..... lets say without 3d ? cant the cards handle it ? :)
  5. OC 670 = GTX 680. So maybe SLI OC 670 may do the trick.
    But for 3 Monitor setup least is 670 OC (Same performance as 680)
    What resolution you'll play at? 5700x1080 ?

    ok thanx ......yes im gnna play 5760x1080 with ultra settings :)
  7. To get a very Good Gameplay you'll probably need these.



    But remember Options slide to the left and Increase speed. :lol:
    I'd say go for GTX 680 atleast and Then OC it. You'll not be able to max out in that res but its very impressive to run 3 monitors.

    thanx !! it was very useful information ... i only hv 2 questions for you .....

    1) u meant 1 gtx 680 OC or 2 x GTX 680's OC'd ??
    2)will i b able to get the max if i get a gtx 690 ?
  9. 1) Single GTX 680 OC.
    I'd recommend you to turn AA off.
    Surely Buy 4GB version, Most games on that resolution cross 2-3 GB.



    2) GTX 690 is a MONSTER. It will run any game on Ultra.
  10. Those Benchmarks are of old Drivers (v301)
    Latest are 310.70, So you'll probably see better performance
  11. 3 monitors all doing 3D at ultra!

    Has anyone been able to find any reviews covering 3D multi monitor reviews? - I can't see much.
  12. You would need 2 gtx 690's to do ultra 3D(120fps) at that res, or 3 670's/680's(4gb models)/ 7950/7970.

    If it was me I would start with 1 (670 or 680 4gb) and if you need more power add more as you see fit.
