Hello gents.Yes i know what you thinking,why did he not use the seach button and im sorry.But here goes...
I have one question regarding my choice of graphics cards and need real serious advise in laymans terms.
Below is list of componants that i have decided on based on my budget

ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z 990FX Motherboard

AMD FX 8350 4.0GHZ Eight Core CPU

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600

CORSAIR AX850 850W 80 PLUS GOLD Modular Power Supply

And now for all the card options.Yes i know most of you are going to say wait for the Titan and yes i will wait untill till the 18th and check out pricing and information etc.but here are the other options thats available to me in my budget...

1 x GTX 690 4GB maxing out the budget at (R11500)
2 x GTX 680 2GB (R11400)
3 x HD 7950 3GB (R10800)
2 x GTX 670 4GB (R10200)
2 x HD 7970 3GB (R9000)
1 x GTX Titan that i would expect to cost +- (R7500) as you can see i dont think ill be able to afford 2 of them :( 

Games I want to play in Eyefinty/Nvidia Surround with 3 x 23inch screens hopfully at max would be Medal of honor, Battlefield , COD , Wow.Well i think i have giving all information from my side so kindly advise me on what route to take....

I think AMD have a better solution in higher resolution as they have more memory however if your 3 screen are 1080p i'd pick dual GTX680...

Well from the researched I've done. x2 680's (good ones, not lame references cards, good oc cards/dual fans etc, im talking OC editions like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) will be better than any set up. If you plan on running 3 monitors, just make sure your vram is equal to no less than 4gb. Idk why people think 6gb+ vram will increase performance but oh well. 4 should be fine.
