Looking to finish my new rig with enough graphics muscle to run 3 displays in as good of settins as I can.
Just looking for some advice.
I am leaning a single 7950 and go CF when the budget allows, going CF 7850 2gb is tempting.

Thoughts?

Why not go with a single 7970 they are around $380 and come with Crysis 3 and Bioshock. Then CF if you need to in the future, as far as cf 7850 while two of them cost about $360 I think it worth the extra $20 for a single card. However if you really want o CF a card you may want to look into the 7870 LE/TX cards which are cut back versions of 7950. They cost about $240 but can be cf with 7900 series cards.
