mmmm I think you would need 2x 7950 3GB's to be in for a comfortable 5760x1200 gaming session with new games. Mainly because 2gb vram isn't going to be enough for that resolution again in the new games.

thanks for reply i think im gona try the 2 7850s cus ther 2 gbs each so that will be 4gbs of vram opposed to the 1 7950 3gb and hope that will be better because 2 7950s is kinda steep$$$

VRAM does not add up. 2 cards having 2GB of VRAM in crossfire yields you 2GB of VRAM. It really depends on which games you will be playing. If you plan to play a game such as BF3 on high-ultra settings at that resolution, I would recommend 2 7950s, probably overclocked.

ya bf3 is the main game i play but it dont need to be able to play on ultra right away il b happy with medium settings for now maybe 1 7950 for now and 1 later then jack up the settings hopefully the 1 one 7950 will give me descent frames on medium?

I believe hardwareheaven had 7970 eyefinity for BF3 stats that you can check out. I am not sure if 7950 stats are out, but there are probably some out there. I would likely recommend overclocking the 7950. Also, keep in mind those stats are usually for single player, and multi player generally yields less results.

you could always get a 6999 or two biggrin.gif but in all seriousness if i understand correctly eyefinity is all about having lots of VRAM

so get something with a much VRAM as possible biggrin.gif
