No my issue in surround is 5760x1080 physically is not an option, and the max resolution it will show me is 4320x900

as when you get into ultra high resolutions you really start needing high amounts of VRAM. The 7970 having 3GB will perform better at those ultra high resolutions than the GTX 680 with 2GB of VRAM.
So while the GTX 600 series benchmarks higher at 1920x1080 and similar resolutions, they actually start to fall behind at ultra high resolutions. Plenty of power, not enough VRAM.
, not sure on the reason but in my other thread I posted a ink to a thread where 2 other people with the same monitors as myself and the GTX 680 got this as well.
The GTX 680 is faster, and if it would show me the proper resolution I would be using it.

Go for a DCU2, it's the only card with 4 displayports which means you won't get the "third monitor tearing issue" you get with 2xDP+DVI+HDMI-cards.
To clarify, OP's swapping his 680 for a 7970 because a 680 can't/won't run 3x1920x1080@120Hz.
the 7970 lightning has 4 Mini-DP, but finding stock is another issue.Edited by Hellish - 5/20/12 at 9:26am
