Hi guys, I have a pair of GTX 680's with 2GB of vram, I'm running triple monitors, with resolution of 5760x1080, I'm running games from a few years ago fine without AA, such as FC3, AC4 and BF3.

I'm now experiencing problems where I'm having to just use one monitor (Titanfall and Watch Dogs are the main issues)

Is there any point in getting a third card or should I sell them and upgrade to something with more VRAM, also, will my motherboard support 3 way SLI? It's M5 A99FX Pro R2.0 motherboard

Thanks for reading, any help (Hopefully not expensive) would be greatly appreciated. :)

Sorry, but 2- way SLI is the limit for that board, no 3-way support. (A nice board by the way :D )

If you really want an upgrade, you'll need something with more VRAM and more power. The problem is, no single card will be more powerful than your current setup; The cheapest real upgrade you can get is a pair of R9 290 cards.

That's what I was thinking, that would go on the same motherboard right?
