3GB GTX580 SLI would be a good amount of power for 5 monitor "eyefinity", not sure nvidia supports 5 monitors though.

Hi, I know more RAM wont really help me.
But my corsair 600w v2 (not 650, mistype) will not power up 2x 6970 CF im pretty sure. wouldnt take the risk anyway.
Altough Im sad to hear that u think 2GB VRAM on each card wont be enough for portrait 5x1 . I think anyhow Im wiating with the 5x1 mode for a litle longer, until I know what next generation GPU is capable of, and untilt heres some decent 24"+ monitors in 16:10 thats cheap and super ultra slim bezels :O

what psu are you using currently, as with a 2500k and 6970's I recon you can probably get away with 650w for crossfire reasonably comfortably assuming your using a decent brand.

with 5 screens, I would expect your limiter to quickly become Vram rather than raw gpu power check around and see if you can find people who have done it on the games you use and see Wether you might not be better getting a new card with more than 2gb of vram over 2x6970's, 3gb 580's or I assume 4gb 6970's exist (not sure though have more or less ignored this gen of gpu's waiting for 7xxx before I upgrade again)

1.5GB (GTX580 SLI) is enough for most games in triple HD but it sometimes meets a vram bottleneck.
I haven't seen any benchmarks for 5x portrait but I'd say 2GB would end up being a bottleneck for some games, but certainly not for all of them.

yeah 600w even a rock solid unit is pushing it for 2 overclocked 6970's, 2gb vram should be ok if your not running too much AA/AF i think but some games have some really big textures and they are only going to get bigger. 5x1 eyefinity is always going to be expensive and It would suck to end up in the position I was when i first went 3x1 where my duel 5870 1gb cards were vram capping me in a fair number of games :'( having to swap over to the e6 editions was not a cheap mistake I will when the next gen hits be buying 4gb cards assuming they exist and possibly going for 5x1 im not sure.

The bezel problem is my biggest issue with 5x1 portrait, tempted to try some cheaper screens and disassemble them and remount them so i have (almost) no bezel at all but you know....effort much

Right now, at 10-11.5 megapixels I can run every title I own (100+, & every AAA to C title released in the last 2 years) @ maximum settings with 16xAF. As a bonus, in 80% of those titles (or a slight percentage higher) I can enable 2-4x EQAA. The 2GB of RAM is suffiicent for 5x1 portrait, while concurrently allowing maximum IQ settings via the game's menu & typically including some degree of anti-aliasing. In the coming years, though, an additional GB or two will become requisite for similar vast resolutions with game-tech advancing as it does.
There is no VRAM bottleneck in 5x1 portrait featuring 2 GB of ram with 1920x1080 monitors & bezel correction. As I stated, there are no titles that have to be pulled back in feature-terms in order to maintain playable framerates. I can maximize texture, shader, & whatever in-game settings are available. I also have tested with 16x Anisotropic filtering enabled, either in-game options or forced via driver.

There is one caveat: anti-aliasing is not applicable in a select handful of titles, but more often than otherwise 2-4X EQAA is viable. As far as maximizing game settings is concerned, I don't consider anti-aliasing as requisite. It's fine if you feel otherwise because, fortunately, in most situations it does run & run well.

Have you tried dragonage 2 with the super high res pack? I found i was hitting vram issues on that with only 5760x1080, either that or it really didn't get on with crossfire, so my framerate drops while at 60%gpu were due to that.

2gb should and is fine for the majority of tittles, but its worth considering getting some 3gb cards seeing as your looking at a pretty significant investment.

hence why i say look at what you personally play and what you want to get out of it, many people refuse to play without 16 AA (personally i cant see why) or like me prefer to be running at 120hz (which reminds me time to update my monitors) you pays your monies you makes your choice, something you have to consider.

Anyway, even if we wanted more vram for 5x1 portrait it's just not available to buy.
To my knowledge there isn't any ATI cards > 2GB aside from the 6990 but this too "only" has 2GB per GPU.
One can find GTX580 with 3GB but there's no such thing as 5 monitor nvidia surround.

I have a question for the eyefinity community. I starting my route to having the eyefinity setup and gathering all the needed parts. I just purchased this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814998051. Will this work for the the three monitor setup? I have been told that if it isn't usb powered that it isn't actually "Active". Just want to make sure I have the right pieces and parts before I start.

As a side note, if you are looking at my computer to answer this I will have 3 of the Hanns G monitors that I have listed and 2 5870's. Thank you for your input.

Commenters say it works
newegg says it's eyefinity ready

If that's not enough for you, pick one from the official ATI list of supported dongles
