Nvidia 3D Surround Questions

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
I've been wanting to get some sort of multi-monitor (probably 3x 24" 1080p) 3D setup going, but am unsure of where I need to go hardware-wise. I'd like to be able to run games like BF3, Batman, Crysis 2, etc. at the highest settings, but from what I understand that would be hard to do at 5760x1080. Right now I have...
Asus P8Z68 Deluxe/Gen3
i5-2500k @ 4.5GHz w/ H100
4x2GB G.Skill Sniper 1.25v
Evga GTX 570 1280MB @ 850, 1700, 1950)
OCZ Vertex 3 120GB
WD Caviar Black 2TB
HP 12x BD burner
Corsair TX850w
CM HAF X
BenQ XL2410T 24" 1920x1080 120Hz

This setup runs these games on ultra just fine with the one monitor, but I eventually want to add two more BenQ's. Should I even bother putting another 1.2gig card or two into SLI, or just sell it and start investing in the 2.5gig versions? Or any other suggestions? I'm not really interested in AMD cards right now, and don't want to wait for Kepler or whatever new Nvidias are coming out. Thanks in advance.

EDIT
Probably not gonna be able to afford the 3GB 580s or anything like that, but I'd like to have something better than 560Ti's. Would it do any good/can you actually put a 1.2GB and 2.5GB GTX 570 together in SLI?

Well, I'll just tell you right now, running games at "max settings" (which literally means every single setting is highest, including AA/AF and other eye candy, is almost not possible in some games out there currently using three monitors at that res). Crysis 2 is a great example. Running Crysis 2 at highest settings on surround at that res, even with two 6990s, would still offer not so impressive performance, but it may be playable.

Bottom line is, you want to get the MOST vRAM possible for that res and three monitors, so you can game comfortably. If you're looking to get close to maxing out new generation games, or max some of the not-so-demanding ones, then I would recommend no less than 4GBs. 3GBs will most certainly not max out games at that res if you include AA/AF and other eye candy.
