Hello. I would like to hear others suggestion on which of this two card is the better choice for triple monitor gaming at 5760 x1080 resolution.

SAPPHIRE FLEX HD7950 3G GDDR5 RM1014
LEADTEK GTX670 2GB GDDR5 RM1075

I chose the flex edition because I dont have active adapter while the 670 doesnt need one right? I knew that GTX670 is definitely faster than HD7950 for gaming on single monitor. But, what confusing me now is how about the performance of these these two card on 5760x1080 res. From my understanding, surely the 3G memory of HD7950 would be more advantage, but some said there are games that didnt use more than 2GB even on 5760x1080 res . Here is the comparison between these two.

On some games at 5760 resolution the GTX670 really outperformed the HD7950. I am asking anyone for their experiences or knowledge on the pros and cons of these cards, and which one you would recommend for better value per performance as the price of each almost the same. I play all kind of games and dont intend to overclock the GPU, or if I ever did overclock, maybe not so much.

From my experience, nvidia is better with triple monitor, I could be wrong too. And since gtx 670 is almost as good as gtx 680 or 7970, I'll go with the gtx 670, but are you going to 2 way sli or 3-way sli? Because if you are playing a single card aren't really productive.

I will not going to do any crossfire or SLI since I am on a budget. I still did not get it why GTX670 with only 2GB of vram could perform almost the same as HD7950 at 5760x1080 resolution. I always tought that the bigger memory the better for such big resolution. What are the accessories bundled with the Leadtek GTX670 though. It seems does not include any adapter to DVI as I only have 3 DVI monitors, ASUS VS239NR.

Go for the HD 7950 because of its 3GBs it goes to higher Resolutions and if you overclock it it will reach the performance of GTX 680
