GTX 670 single card for triple monitor gaming

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, I recently got a Corsair tx650, will it be able to handle MSI gtx 670 SLI?

I'm thinking of triple monitor gaming on just one card. I can get another if this is not possible but actually I dont mind playing at 35 fps average with no AA and graphics to medium-high.. not lowest though but medium - 35+ fps, and I'm good. I don't play much call of duty etc. I usually play Skyrim , far cry 3, prototype,dead island etc. types of game.

So will a single gtx 670 be able to do that or I should get another gtx 670 first and then get the monitors?

35 FPS with such a card is ridiculous (unless you are a fan of slideshows). Plus it will bog down even lower in heavy scenes.

Dual 670's will run fine with a TX650 unless you are running insane overclocks.

Thanks for your answer, it's good to know dual 670's will be fine with Tx650.
No overclocking on any component. Everything running at stock and will run at stock.

I will not really run in triple monitors all the time. I'm not a heavy gamer and don't play games every day. Only once a week on sunday maybe and I do not mind till fps are over 30 with triple monitors. Also I'm not gonna play multiplayer with huge number of players, and not even games like battlefield. Only a few selected titles like I mentioned above.
I will follow assassins creed series, the elder scrolls, gta , resident evil etc.
So will it be fine on a single card?

Personally, I would get a second 670 and worry about the monitors later on.

I would rather have dual 670's and the ability to crank up all the visuals as opposed to having a single 670 with 3 screens. But that's my preference.

What screen are you currently using?

Samsung syncmaster 2033sw, it's max resolution is 1600x900.
I will probably get 24" x 3.

That's just a bit more pixels than my center screen... you should be fine on 1 card with those settings/goals.
