I recommend GTX 260 SLI, that would be $300 ($150 each). But THREE at 1080p, i recommend GTX 480 SLI, but thats wayyy up there almost $600 total...

this is difficult. an affordable 5870 would do it best with the most vram you could find one to come with for $200. I dont know what nvidia can do in that price range as Im very sure anything before fermi (4xx series) do not support surround. if you dont mean gaming on all three monitors then you can stretch to three monitors as long as the card has three ports.

er, you know you should be able to find another 465 for $200

okay, i looked on ebay to see whats out there and available. theres a 6950 2gb in that price range ($220) eyefinity is a memory hog as you are displaying out to three screens rather than just one. Now I wont say the gameplay will be all as smooth as youre used to but thats about the best I can assume you could get at that price for 3 screens.

tho its refurbished, it is affordable.

Darn it, dont forget you may have to get an adapter as it has only 2 dvi ports. i thought they all came with 3 of those already....

You could try going 560 SLI, you need to get a 560 on the cheap though. Check craigslist for idiotic buyers smile.gif
