that gigabyte is good and it can do triple screen setup, but its VERY LONG. be aware of that.

BTW you know that you will have to buy active dp to dvi adapter to use eyefinity? In that gigabyte or sapphire it would be mini dp to dvi

if you are rly forced to use cuda here is a solution for you. http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0373627

3 screens is design for Multi GPU oriented
especially for "Gaming" at 3 screens D;,
u need at least powerfull Multi GPU or very-very powerfull single GPU,,

like u say galaxy 560ti mdt x5,,is design can run multi screens, but performance for heavy-load gaming application is not recommended,,

*in my humble opinion

well 560 is on pair with 6870. and its on pretty same prise (since you will need the costly active adapter) so if you will use cuda, yes its worth to buy, atleast for you. ofc later you can add 2nd any other 560 to sli.

There are two ways to go with triple monitor setups. The first is extended desktop, where Windows recognizes them as three separate displays. The other is AMD Eyefinity/Nvidia Surround, where all three displays are essentially combined into a single large display. This is useful if you want to game on all three.

If all you need is extended desktop, which is what it sounds like from your description, then your options are more flexible since you can use two separate video cards to drive the monitors. This will work great for your productivity needs but will only allow you to game on one. If you do want Eyefinity/Surround, you need either one powerful AMD card or Nvidia SLI.

If you need CUDA but are okay with extended desktop, you can get any 560 or 560 TI, and use that and your old 9800. This will let you do extended desktop only.

If you don't care about CUDA, you can get an AMD 6870 or 6950 and drive all three monitors from it (or combine with 9800 to take some load off the AMD card). If you go the AMD-only route then you can do extended or Eyefinity, which will leave you with the option of gaming on all three if you decide to do so at some point. Do note that if you think you may game on all three at some point, you probably should not look at anything less than 6950 2GB (more expensive than 1GB model). If you do buy the 6950 2GB, with the intention of Eyefinity gaming, this will not be enough to play some of the newer games on high settings. However, you did mention that that's not a problem.

Any motherboard with two PCIe x16 slots can do two Nvidia or AMD cards, or even one of each. Not all can do SLI though, which is not the same thing.

Another thing you can do if you only plan to buy one card, want to have the ability to game on 3 monitors sometimes, and want to have CUDA: buy a 6950 2GB (6970 would be even better but it exceeds your $300 budget), connect all three monitors to it, and use the 9800 for CUDA (better known as having a dedicated PhysX card: see this thread for more info).

If you did that, your setup would be basically the same as mine right now, except the 9800 is a bit more powerful than the 430.
