also 3GB is more than enough for triple monitor gaming. So I don't think there should be any doubt. go for the HD 7950 CF. you can get the same Gigabyte HD 7950 with the free games at novatech for the same price

in fact if you turn off MSAA in games and are ok to running games at high instead of max settings a single HD 7950 would do.

My 7970/7950 crossfire is a testament to that..

I would go with the dual 7950s buddy. they have insane OC'ing. and your spreading the load across two PCI bus's and two PCB's.

7950's overall have lower overclock ceilings obviously since they are lower binned chips. On top of that some are shipping with memory rated at 1250mhz instead 1500mhz as defined by the reference spec.

WOW! 1 fps difference in Metro 2033 @ 5760x1080 4xmsaa between a similar clocked 3GB 7970 and this 6GB 7970. That says almost everything rolleyes.gif

IMO, go with 7950 cfx if you want lots of performance but in your plans making a hole in your wallet isn't an option.
