Well to get these screens working you need to buy an expensive displayport adapter and most of them only support 60hz.

Best cards to buy for surround gaming are 3x770 4gb or 3x780 3gb (a user on [h] the 3gb is good 3x1440 with no AA).

Had 4x7950@1240mhz and switched to three 6804gb... the performance loss was worth it for the dedicated dvi port!

Haven't heard of anyone buying from that seller before. Let us know how it goes.

I checked like 4-5 reputable review sites, and they all said that each gpu only has access to 3 gigs, its how its made. So technically I guess you are using 6 gigs, but its not the same as it using all 6 gigs at once, its not.

The adapters I have are supposed to be able to go to 120 hz. User reviews have stated that they have gotten that on three monitors. And even with the gtx from what I see you still are going to need at least one adapter since they only have 2 dvis.

The 4 gig varient of the 770 seems to be either unavalible or sold out so far. From what I understand running 3 monitors at 1440 seems to push the limit to at least 3 gigs. I was able to eek 35 fps out of my dual 7870s in bioshock, so maybe jumping to dual 7970s or a 7990 is the way to go. I was just curious about the card I posted since it seems to be the only single gpu amd that has 6 gigs of ram.

I don't really need 120 fps at all. I'd be happy to get a stable 60 with games smile.gif

Seems like there are no other video cards that have 6 gigs of ram besides the titan or dual gpu solutions like the 7990 (which is really just 3 gigs since crossfired) I mean to go up to a titan is like 400 more. would pushing three screens with 3 gigs be doable? It seems like more than that is needed. I know there are 4 gig nvidia cards as well, though Id prefer to stay amd.

A single 7970 won't get you anywhere near playable framerates at 7680x1440, regardless of whether it has 3GB or 6GB VRAM because the GPU isn't powerful enough. You'll need at least 3 of them if you want 60fps in modern games at medium/high settings. I came from 5760x1080 with 2x 7970's and was able to play most games at high/max settings, but bear in mind that 7680x1440 is 1.8 times that resolution.

Nvidia surroud requires you to plug each dvi to each card installed.

Thanks! Maybe I was running some voodoo getting 35 fps in Bioshock, then again I assume it's not that demanding of a game compared to others.

Ahh ok. Not as well versed in nvidia cards. I guess not being able to use the outputs on the second card is an amd limitation.

I didn't really wanna pay more, but hey you have to pay to play right? How about a 7990 then, and getting a 7970 to crossfire with it later? Ima probably need a new psu as well, but comes with the territory.

I've got image retention on my screen.

On a brown background I can see the address bar of my browser quite clearly? nerdsmiley.png

Have you overclocked at all. Seems that it usually goes away.
