post #4871 of 8961
So if I'm getting about 60-70fps on one monitor, with surround I'll be getting approximately 20fps?

Sounds like SLI is necessary to run current games in surround mode.

one GTX 680 @ 5760 x 1080p resolution can drop to around 30FPS easily but it doesn't stay there.. LOL.

I don't really understand the context of your reply. Are you basically saying that one card for surround shouldn't be done?

it can be done and is done all the time, there is a member now doing 5760 x 1080p on a single GTX 670..
all I'm saying is that during graphically intensive gaming your FPS will drop and noticeably so with a single card.
combat that by turning down the settings specifically levels of AA.

I say go for it and see if you like it.

I done surround on a single 4GB 680 for a while and only a couple of games had a problem with it


most I could max out with no problem at all

Crysis 1, warhead, 3 and Far Cry 3 were the only ones I couldn't

I think he means that it will drop under 30 fps and might go over a little but mostly under.
When doing Surround Vision Gaming the quality really takes a hit when only using one GPU. If you want better graphics quality (more fps & all the eyecandy that you can enable) then Yes, you should go with a SLI setup.
Games can get real sketchy looking when getting a lot lower on the Frames per second scale.
For me the stuttering is the worst & most annoying.

You probably want a second card if you want to run games at their max settings or with 45-60 fps.

I was just going to try it with a single card first, and if it became a necessity I'd eventually run SLI. thumb.gif

I'm not spending anything extra except 30 dollars for a monitor mount. I already have three of the same ones anyway. I really don't like to do gaming under 60 fps, so it sounds like to me nvidia surround will still be experimental or for fun only until I do get sli.

like I said, go for it and when the FPS drop then lower your settings, might have to go minimal AA.
