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 :) ))

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.

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 ?

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.

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.

Those Benchmarks are of old Drivers (v301)
Latest are 310.70, So you'll probably see better performance

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.

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.
