Hello,
I am on the fence about buying either an 670 4GB EVGA or a 680 2GB EVGA graphics card. I want to use a single graphics card for triple monitor display gaming. I read some talk about how maybe the 2GB might be bad for the triple setup, but I got no concrete answers.

Go on and get a 4GB vRAM card. But why don't you go and get an AMD Radeon 7970 which can OC and has a 3GB vRAM and wider bus for future games? I mean it is cheaper or same price as a 4GB vRAM GTX 670 and way cheaper than a GTX 680 and performs on par with GTX 680 and can OC to leave both Nvidia cards in the dust. Safe bet, grab a AMD Radeon HD 7970 from either Sapphire, ASUS, Gigabyte, HIS and avoid XFX.

I recently had an HIS 7950 completely fail on me and the AMD 2 game free deal scam on Newegg just cost me 170 dollars. So I really want to stay away from AMD right now, but thanks for the advice I will probably seriously consider the 4GB.

Gtx 670, 3 monitors requires a lot of vram if you are playing game on all 3 monitors.

Buy it from ncix.com. I got all my stuff there and they're awesome when it comes to deal with customers. Sapphire won't fail you. Who made your 7950? Because you can get that replaced since it still has warranty.
