Need help choosing graphics card/cards for triple monitor setup

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am currently plan on moving up to gaming on three monitors. I am looking at either the 590 in Quad Sli or the 6990 in Quad Crossfire. I don't plan on water cooling them because I cant afford it after I get the cards. And do you guys think that those cards can handle battefield 3 in max settings in 5760 X 1080 resolution? Any help will be appreciated.

Not so sure about the "BF3 @ MAX res" But I honestly don't know how people can Quad-SLI / XFIRE on air without their PC burning up like the sun. I have a HAF932 and I couldn't get 2 HD5850's working without the topmost card running 90degC.
From what I've been told in another thread, 2x HD 6970 2GB would be okay for most games. Following that logic 4x HD6990's should be overkill. likewise the same for 4xGTX590's.

Well I have a g1 sniper 2 motherboard and if you look at it on newegg real quick, there is a sizable amount of space between the two pci 2.0 slots to keep the cards from being starved of air. Plus I was thinking that my 200mm side fan should help keep this card from cooking in my nzxt phantom.
