Hello I have recently completed a new computer and in the near future (within 2 months) I'm going to buy a new tv to use as my monitor. Looking at something between 50-60 inches. Was wondering if it would be best to use one high end gpu or a dual set-up. At the moment I'm running dual HD 5770 crossfire setup that I carried over from my previous comp. Use my computer for gaming,watching HD movies/shows, and some video editing. Also have about $400-$$450 that i have in my gpu fund, just fyi. Here are my specs ;

- Asus Maximus Extreme Z77 Motherboard
- Intel Core i7-3770K
- 32GB Corsair Vengeance RAM DDR3
- Corsair Professional Series AX 1200 Watt Power Supply
- Corsair Hydro Series H80 CPU Cooler
- Seagate Barracuda 3 TB HDD
- Windows 7 Ultimate
- Two 200mm Fans
- One 140mm Fan
- One 120mm Fan
- Thermaltake MK-1 Chaser Case

Any help would be appreciated

With 450$, you won't get any good dual gpu setups, get a single 670 gtx, in preference a 670 evga ftw or a gigabite windforce 3x or asus dcii.

Just get the best single GPU you can a GTX 680 or HD 7970. Then in a year or so crossfire or SLI and you will be good to go.

but for the AMD drivers playing catch up all the time. :) Maybe it's the eyefinity that makes for the biggest problem. Much harder to get full usage with eyefinity or surround for that matter

Hi :) 

I run it on 3 monitors using Eyefinity and the latest 12.11 Beta drivers...its fine...amazing actually...

All the best Brett :)

Did you actually read the original post? He said that he had a budget of about 400$, not 1000$....
