GPU for 3x 1080p

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
What would be the cheapest single GPU that would be able to max out SC2, CS:S, TF2, HL2M and games such as those. It will have to do so @ a resolution of 3 1080p monitors...

6970 is your best bet... if you go nvidia you'll need 2 cards.

There is no "Single" GPU powerful enough to max out 5760x1080...

3x 580's do a good job though!

Damn, I read single GPU as single card.
Oh well.

6990 and 6970 tri-fire maybe?

But a 6990 or a 6970 CF or a 6950 unlocked CF will give you quite decent performance.

I believe 3GB version of GTX 580 SLI will also give decent performance.

EDIT: wooops ! did not see the 'single' myself. Yep, best bet would be 6970 and OC the snot out of it. A 6950 unlocked will also do the job - you may have to scale down on AA and AF some.

+1, only way to go if you want a single card, that isnt dual-GPU.

These are all source games, I don't think you would need more then a 6970.
