Judging by his post he doesn't have the brains to overclock.

not trying to start a fight i learned a few things like the 560 might overclock better but monitor support is not there for 3 monitors the GTX 560 Ti is 269.00 but i might be able to achieve my goal with 2 of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150547 for the same cost and a little better performance
both of these cards have the Twin Frozr II design but the XFX HD- HD 6790 is the i meant what r your thoughts

Stay away from the 6770 it is just a rebaged 5770. A good card by all means but definetly more mainstream market pricing and performence.

I would second the recomendation for the 6950.

I would say got with a 460. They are beasts at overclocking! Not sure about 500MHz but you could easily get 250-300MHz. For 3 monitors, SLI them and you could use Nvidia Surround. Just a suggestion though.

yeah, if you simply want to OC go 460.
if you want 3 monitors then go 6950

the latest GPU from 'NVIDIA' is the 'GTX 590'
it's got many features, and maybe you will find what you looking for.

Not a good card for his budget, or for the kind of OC he is looking for.
