Hmmm... at that res, it looks like the power of Tri-SLI may be needed to maintain higher frames then. thinking.gif

He's pushing a higher resolution than what a normal triple screen setup (1920x1080) would do. Tri would definitely help as would extra vram biggrin.gif

Yeah, I've been going back and forth on picking up the same monitors you have, or just taking the plunge and getting the two more of my 27" monitors. My wallet is cringing already at the thought... eek.gif

With the 1440s, you'll need more gpu power to push through that. So mo money, mo money tongue.gif/

If money is tight, go with the three 1080 ips screens. Ips screens tend to hold their value better than tn monitors. so you can always sell them later on and recoup most of your investment.

Team MMG is aka Team Brown... what did you say? biggrin.gif

wermad's right - if you get triple 1080p monitors with DisplayPort, you can run DVI+HDMI+DisPort for Surround, and DVI for the 1440p as an accessory display! biggrin.gifthumb.gif

Yeah...

Triple 1080p:
  • Three Asus 22" monitors - $145 x 3 = $435
  • One more GTX 670 = ~$360
  • One more GPU waterblock + backplate = $160

Total: ~$955 redface.gif


Triple 1440p:
  • Two more Shimian monitors - $285 each x 2 = $570
  • Two more GTX 670's - ~$360 x 2 = $720
  • Two more GPU waterblocks + backplates = $320
  • Asus P8Z77 WS motherboard (since my current board only has two PCIE x16 slots) = ~$300

Total: ~$1910 eek.gifeek.gifeek.gif

Awesome setup! thumb.gif I imagine it must feel like you are at the center of a critical mission trying to hack into a top secret government project with that quad monitor span, lol. wheee.gif

By the way, I like your idea A LOT better than my own above, lol! biggrin.gif

And yes, go TEAM BROWN! grouphug.gif

You can get a MIVE/Z, ud7 p67/z68, evga z68/p67, or WS revo p67 and all support three way sli (some do 8x/16x/16x or 8x/8x/16x). The plx is faster but not dramatically (unless you're a hardcore bencher) compared to the nf200. These are under $200 used, most are sitting ~$150, and if you look hard enough you can score one for ~$100-125. If I recall, Nvidia doesn't support pcie 3.0 so there's no advantage to run z77 and with a bios update these boards can run IB.

Look for the Sniper3. I've seen those used for a couple of months go for $220.

Its a pita that to get the most out of MMG you need to dump a lot of cash frown.gif.

This is very true. I will have to keep my eyes peeled for any deals, used and otherwise. I did find a Z77 WS for $250 on Newegg OB, so I'm mulling over that for the moment as well. thumb.gif

I think after crunching these numbers above, it looks like the 1080p setup will make the most sense. It will still require a little more money, but certainly nowhere near as bad the 1440p. redface.gif
