I am building a new rig and and coming to a standstill when trying to figure out what gpu I want/need to get. I am holding of on ordering everything until i decide.
so far I have decided on:
Asus Maximus V Gene
32gb Corsair Vengeance
Corsair 850W bronze
I haven't put together a new PC in quite a few years, so if there is any other info you're needing just let me know.
I am wanting to be able to run 3 monitors and run games on Ultra settings, wanting to run all 3 monitors at 1920x1080.
Edit: Forgot to state that I am also trying to get the best possible frame rate no lower than 40-50 fps. And trying to stay in the ball park of $300-$400, but I am willing to go more if it is worth it.
Gaming on 3 monitors on ultra settings with minimum framerates of 40+ is going to require a lot more money than $300-400... you're looking at CF 7970s or SLI 680s as the way to go to have a shot at that...
My recommendations, in order of what I think would be best for that setup:
2x HD 7970 GHz Edition
1x HD 7990
2x GTX 680
2x GTX 670 / 1 x GTX 690
2x (manually overclocked) HD 7950
No single GPU is going to come close to maxing out demanding games on 3 screens with 40fps minimum framerates. Even with CF 7970s or SLI 680s, you're probably going to have to turn down AA settings in more demanding games to achieve that framerate.
