Oh really, now thats what I'm talking about. I bet I could play on high with no AA. What kind of frames do you get.

Its just the ram, they make a 3gb 580 but that was $600 $500 was already way too much.

Yeah, I got 2 1.5 in SLI (actually, one is a 3gb, but it is limited by the first one...)

I'm sure that by tax time the glare issue will be fixed with BF3. If you HAVE THE CHOICE, go with the 3gb, but like I said, 1.5s should be fine with AA turned down. I mean no disrespect to the people saying otherwise, but 3gb is NOT the min. requirement for 3 screens, I have no idea where they are getting this from.

I do run 3 screens in alot of games (including Crysis 2 at max settings) and the frame rate was just fine. No noticeable lag, but didn't know exactly what the framerate was seeing as I was using a 3rd party surround (http://www.kegetys.net/forum/index.php?topic=2872.0 for screenshots) but I'm about 90% sure if it can do Crysis 2 with max settings on a 3rd party set up, it can do BF3 on nvidia's software Surround.

Ok, there, brought some proof to the table ^^

I wonder how TRI SLI 580s with 1.5gb will do in surround. I think I may buy three semi cheap ~$180 monitors to test it out. Gotta love the 30 day return policy of some stores.

No questions asked

What do you mean by third party surround?

I asked in the bf3 thread but it got buried.

I have experience with this. 3D nVIDIA surround is not fully functional with BF3. For me at least. I have issues with the screens being glitchy and the lighting being really weird and what not. Idk what the issue is. I guess it'll be fixed soon. I'm not too concerned for now. Every other game is fine.

I usually just stick with one monitor anyways. However, it's easier to run it on my 3GB LEs than my 1.5GB EVGA SCs for surround. Plus I have to turn down some AA settings on ultra for my 1.5GBs to perform to my liking.

Ok but you can still run it on ultra just without the extra stuff like AA? Thats what I wanted to hear. Thank you sir rep given.

I found this in surround but it dosen't specify if it's 1.5GB vs 3GB in SLI playing BF3.
