Hey Tom's Hardware.

I have an MSI Twin Frozr GTX 770 with 2GB of memory, factory overclocked.


How many monitors will this one card support? As it stands, it has a displayport, an HDMI port, and two DVI ports.

If I wanted to game using the NVIDIA Surround options, would it be recommended to grab a second 770 and SLI them, or get a third card?


Also, will I be able to have a triple monitor setup with surround if I have a GTX 770, and a GTS 450?

Ok, the 770 is capable of supporting 4 monitors alone, getting another 770 and SLI'ing them will greatly improve performance, however is not necessary to get the 3 monitors in surround, that can be done with a single card. And you cannot SLI the 770 with the 450, You cannot SLI cards with other cards, only the same card with the same card. So if you want a second card, you will want to get another 770. Easiest way to do it. Hope this helps!

What kind of FPS would I expect to get using one 770 playing something like Battlefield 4 across three screens?

Couldn't tell you, I run off of one monitor, and I don't play BF4, on bf4 I average 82 fps if that helps.

Physx is a physics engine used in a couple games. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_games_with_hardwar... The lower card would be dedicated to the physics calculations letting the main gpu do other stuff to increase performance.
