And would I be better off just running multiple cards in sli or crossfire

Thanks!!

For one..unless you are in a state that newegg is in...buying from TigerDirect is very cost prohibited....I will admit they come out with decent deals...but not very often...just watch your back

one card is always better than 2

6970 is the best you can get with 400 bucks

I wouldn't even look at the GTX480, you'd be better off with the GTX570.

If I were going to SLi with that rig I wouldn't consider anything less than a GTX570 or the HD6970. Between the two there isn't much tbh, it really comes down to the games that you play. They each excel at different games

Get a gtx 570. That would be the best card under $400.

no, you'll have problems running 4 monitors off a single card.

What is your current setup?
