Galaxy GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 360$
this is if you want NVIDIA.
if you dont mind ATi go for a Flex version from Sapphire like
SAPPHIRE FleX Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 200$
or
ASUS EAH6950 DCII/2DI4S/2GD5 Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 290$
Hope that helped thumb.gif

He'd need two of either nVidia card to run a three screen setup.
Unless you want to go SLI or dual GPU card, AMD is the only option. An HD 7950 might be a good buy, if that's within your budget.

Since You have 3 different Monitors Eyefinity 2.0 is ideal for you. I would hold up just a bit for HD 78XX.

Oh, I see. Sorry then.
But still, that card is a mere GTX 560 and has got but 1 GB of VRAM. That certainly won't be enough to fuel a triple screen setup.
post #17 of 25
i know buddy but some people have low budget and want to work on tri screen for 200$ too have a look here
the OP did not mention his/her budget so had to go from the cheapest first redface.gif hope that answered your questions smile.gif

Would'nt a 3GB GTX 580 do the job for 3 monitors.

While there are Nvidia cards that can cope with more than the standard 2 displays at once, I'd not recommend them anyway. Personally, for multi-boxing Eve, I'd go for something mid-range last gen, and get 3 of them. Skip the SLI or Xfire, and just fit 3 GTX460 1GB, or 5850/5870/6950s and put one display on each of them. One GPU per game will be entirely enough to run it well.

Total overkill batman. First off, TriFire and gaming...... second off there is no reason OP cannot get what he wants from a single card, dual cards would be getting silly for his needs.
