Triple Monitor Setup, 5760 x 1080. What graphics card at high/ultra-solid 60fps? - Page 4

post #31 of 33
Getting two HD 7950 OC cards is the best option. the gigabyte HD 7950 windforce is priced quite well.

clock for clock HD 7950 is 3 - 5% slower than HD 7970. you can easily run these cards at 1 Ghz with stock voltage and get HD 7970 (925 Mhz) performance.

You should be able to play most games maxed out at 5760 x 1080 at 50 fps.

Welcome to OCN! great to see another from NZ biggrin.gif

I think the Nvidia driver support for SLI on thier newer cards is better than AMD's... so if it is a money-no-object situation I would personally go with a couple 670's or 680's, but that is just my 2c.

Sammich and TA4K are right. 670's and 680's really are the way to go if you want to have a hassle free, micro-stutter free (ungodly less micro-stutter than the 7970's) experience where "future proofing" is the goal and money is no issue.

raghu78 brings up a very good budgetary option, the 7950's are a solid choice if you are looking to spend as little money as possible while still having a very solid gaming experience. Running the 7950's and comparing them to 7970's at 925 MHz is akin to using pepsi in place of high octane gas in a BMW in my opinion though. The 7970's are built to overclock, and holy **** do they overclock like frustrated teenagers in a Mormon prom biggrin.gif.

If on a budget I'd say go the 7950's in crossfire route..

Or go big or go home and be .. "future proofed" as best you can with either the 670's or 680's.

Those are your two best choices, and this is coming from someone that has owned 2x7970's (reference); 2x680's (reference); 3x670's 4GB.

(My Tri-SLI 4GB 670's, with no overclock, actually max BF3 on three 24" inch monitors -- 3490*1920 -- never dropping below 64 FPS, while my 7970's in crossfire overclocked, would drop to the twenties with MSAAx4 on.) Of course it's tough to compare 3 nVidia cards vs 2 AMD cards, but the AMD drivers would crash 100% of the time with 3 cards.. so who really has the better drivers? rolleyes.gif


And so you know, italics are borderline sarcastic. To spell it out further -- there is no future proofing in the computer world, especially with GPU's in today's market.
