2gb is still pretty good for three monitors just don't go crazy with the settings. We recommend at least 2gb to get started. Though you can make it happen with less. Multiple monitors really like more hp vs vram. Two gpu(s) is ideal to start triple monitors. Its really the eyecandy that will affect your vram (just keep that down). My two 690s had awesome frames in Crysis 3 but I couldn't bump aa as it would cause massive drops. The two Titans I had could push more aa but it was a tad bit slower. Even with 6gb, I was using ~2.4gb w/ 4x MSAA at max settings. Lower settings will net you more fps and less vram usage. With these extreme resolutions, aa may not be a total loss tbh.
edit: if you can wait for the fix (and put up w/ a few things) find a used 7970 3gb. But one card (regardless of side) will have trouble keeping up.

Nvidia cards still command a higher price. So $299 will put it squarely w/ the 280x and 680. the 4gb version may go for ~$50 more. As I mentioned earlier, amd cards will depreciate quicker and Nvidia cards have a higher resale value.Edited by wermad - 10/8/13 at 1:24am
