Adding a third gpu typically only tightens your fps, ie if you have 2 gpus and you experience 90-150 fps a third will make it more like 120-150 fps, yes I know the numbers I'm using aren't realistic, just trying to illustrate a point.

And two 480s will kick some serious butt, and if you oc them they will be even more godly

The 480 will do the same, but its going to run a LOT hotter, and take up a LOT more power. We're talking about a 90w TDP graphics card (the 7850) vs a 325w TDP card (the GTX 480). The 7870 is only a 125w TDP card, and the 7950 is only a 175w TDP card.
I know this is the Nvidia section and all, but there's nothing in that price range that will beat a brand new 7850 / 7870 or a used 7950. You're looking at a weak mid range card (560 non Ti), that should be valued at under $100 these days, a GTX 570...which is an okay card but won't handle 3 monitor gaming like you're wanting, or a GTX 480 which is a space heater. Do make note that NONE of these Nvidia cards you're looking at will handle 3 monitors until you SLI them, and none of these cards are worth SLI'ing considering they're all at least a generation old (or more), and they're mid range or mid high end at best (for their generation). Yes, for a while it (the 480) was a great bang for your buck, but not with the 7850 on the loose.
Honestly, I think you're looking in all of the wrong places for what you're after. I mean if you are absolutely bent on going with the Green team, by all means go for it. I hold absolutely no brand loyalty at all. I'm just saying, for your money, the 7xxx series is going to be the better option in your price bracket.

I understand but u have to under stand I do not want to pay close to $300 for a card my original price point was to just sli 2 460's the only reason i was even considering going up to maybe $250 was strictly under the advisement of the experienced user's here whom's opinions i respect. I would really like to stay under or around $200 a card as i will not be able to purchase them both at one time anyway,I am am not a hard core gamer & this is my first build so it's probably better that I spend less due to all the experimental tweaking I will be doing on my end.I mean one of the earlier posters mentioned this card which was never entirely out of the question http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150608 But I do really want to stay with nvidia reason's(can be so subjective) But Nvidia is solely a graphics company therefore they throw all there money into that and that alone so via that common sense i mean u have to believe that with all there time,effort & $ thrown into R&D they have a superior product.(minus the occasional home run mistake by the bat boy). The same way intel dominates the cpu market even though most of us who can not afford or are not willing, to pay that much money are capable of coming up with endless (subjective again) reason's or excuses why they are not dominant,doesn't change the fact that it's true. I did choose an amd chipset because it was cheaper & they had the newest thing out. it's kind of the same thing as buying a ford air filter for your ford car rather than buying one from K&N or having an emergency room DR. stitch a wound on a super models face rather than having plastic surgeon do it. And consider That I am coming from a
dell optiplex gx280 & a pny geforce 6200!!!gunner.gif pretty much anything I build is going to be a Koenigsegg agera(super duper car) to me! maybe I should just stick to the original plan of 2 460's aT $100 a piece they will support 3 monitors correct?

If you really don't want to pass over that $250 price point, then here:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814129230

Don't get an XFX card. I won't go into the details, but I do urge you to go to XFX's website and read their updated RMA policy....which they did not inform their customers of, plus they still have it listed incorrectly on newegg's website. Most of their cards are NOT a lifetime warranty anymore.

Anyway, a 7850 with a nice heavy overclock of 1.1-1.2GHz will easily keep up with a 7950 with a light overclock.

Again, you're not going to get that kind of performance with Nvidia in that price range. You're just not going to. Plus you're also going to be drawing at minimum 100w more per GPU with Nvidia in that price range. 560Ti is about 180w TDP card, 570 is about a 225w TDP card, 480 is a 325w TDP card. The 7850 (which beats all of these) is a 90w TDP card.

To equal a 7850 heavily overclocked, you're going to need a GTX 580 heavily overclocked (probably under water). Two card systems, again you'll be looking at 580 SLI (which will require a 750+ w power supply) just to compete with the 7850 crossfire solution (which would run fine crossfired off a good 450w unit).

I already bought an xfx xxx series 750w 80 plus silver. And is the 7850 better than all my choices as far as performance or just less heat & power consumption? because heat and power are not concerns of mine. I want he card that has the best performance so i guess the question is will the 7850 outperform a gtx 570 and gtx 480 as far as fps? all 3 cards overclocked to there max which will have best performance?

7850s are powerhouses for the price. Im not certain they are as strong as pioneer mentioned but when overclocked they cannot be beat for price/performance thats for sure.

I don't get why this is still going...
If you don't have all the money right now get a GTX 460.
If you have a little bit more money then go with a 560 Ti.
If you can spend a little more go with a 570.
If you are fine with AMD graphics cards go with a 7850. Simple as that.

After the power talk your psu wont run 3 480's or 3 570's. Only a 750w? I think 2 is max unless you go with a 600 or 7000(mid range) series card.

yeah its a 750w i. Guess its just going to be two cards I'll just buy the fx ud3 board & I guess two 460's will have to do
