Maybe slightly off topic but does hackintosh even support three monitors? This just sounds like a giant headache to me lol.

What single ATI card would you recommended for 5760x1080 on Medium settings in Battlefield 3?

How much can you spend on the graphics card. do you have a budget limit. There are some excellent deals on HD 7950 for as low as USD 320 after rebate. Go for that if you have the money. thumb.gif

If your budget is below USD 200 , the only option for you is HD 6870.

Its better to go for a card like HD 7950 which can last you for a while. With 3GB VRAM and 384 bit memory bus that card should be reasonably good to run games for the next 2 years at medium to high settings. think about it. you don't want to buy a card which struggles next year to do the most demanding games on medium settings. thumb.gif
