What about dual 7970's? If I'm going to go triple monitor I'd like to be able to play games on high settings. If I stick with just 3x24" monitors and sell my 670 I might have enough to buy two 7970's.
Nice! Let me know how it works out for you, I'm very interested since that's the kind of setup I'm looking for.
Single 7970 worked fine.
Eyefinity worked fine on one card.

Dual 7970s worked fine one single monitor.
But when I used Crossfire AND Eyefinity together, everything stopped working correctly. Vsync didn't work, everything stuttered (every single game I tried, I couldn't get a single game to run smoothly), there was one permanent tear line even on the desktop, games had terrible tearing (worse than what you usually see with vsync off)... clean installs of Windows, all driver versions, spent weeks troubleshooting... nothing. So I sold them. There is a massive thread of people trying to figure it out with me. Basically if you can think of it, we tried it.
Most people don't have such problems, I don't believe - but I sure did. I wasn't very happy with the red team. Haven't had any problems since going green team again. I'm no fanboy, it worked great when it wasn't crossfinity, and I would still suggest it for more basic configs. But I would be at least somewhat wary if going crossfinity. I like my green team because everything works without having to do nearly as much dicking around. Lost some good money over that ordeal.
Well, even when it was just Crossfire on a single monitor, I did have more problems and had to do more tweaking than green team, but I'd still suggest it for people on a tighter budget.
