2x 6990 or 3x GTX 580 3gb for 7680x1600 - Page 4

3x 3gb GTX 580s will be better. The extra ram is more valuable than shaders at that resolution.

See this thread for a lot of details.

Decided to go with the 2x 6990's (for now), couldn't find a mobo with proper slot layout. The Z68-UD& would have been perfect, but the heatsink doesn't offer clearance for the 1x slot, fail design choice.

Hope you have watercooling, or noise canceling head-phones!

Best of luck mate.

Cheers,

Most fullcover gpu blocks take up on slot. So, you can squeeze in a sound card as long as its width doesn't interfere with other hardware. My mb has a pcie 2.0 and 1.0 slots available at the bottom of the three cards. My vote goes for three 580s w/ 3gb for that crazy resolution.
