OP what res. do you plan to run when you go 3D surround, you might need something with more Vram then a 560 offers, maybe more then the 570 offers

(3) 1680x1050 for 3D Surround is the plan. I do fear that dual 560s might not allow me to enjoy the max settings w/the extra bling (AA+AF). I'm starting to wonder if I should just go w/dual 470s and save some cash ...as stated earlier, I am a moderate GPU OCer. I have no intentions to fool around with the voltage.

if all u want to do is a 3 monitors surround set up, a GTX 560 SLI 2 GB setup would be smoother due to the extra vram. 1.2 GB isn't enough. even 1.5 GB can be too little.
6950 2 GB and 6970s are also good choices. but u indicated you don't like AMD. so GTX 560s 2 GB are probably best. GTX 570 2.5 GB are super rare and GTX 580 3 GB are expensive.

Eh? Come on bro...You got to do better than that. Site reviews show dual 570's can handle 3d Surround just fine. I'm not expecting perfection. Also, my friend has a dual 570 3D Surround setup using (3) 1920x1080 and the performance is sweeeeet. This is reason why I'm going back to Nvidia

What games was your friend running in 3D? SLI 570s are going to struggle to push 60 fps in surround with any of the newer titles (and usually has to sacrifice AA just to stay "playable" due to VRAM constraints):

Granted this is using 3x 1920x1200 screens, but your res is comparable. Considering 3D essentially cuts your fps in half, I'd think you'd want a little more muscle to really take advantage of it.

I keep calling it 3d Surround but I'm only concerned with the tri-screen gaming setup minus the 3d mode. Several had told me that I should just stick to Eyefinity but I like the PhysX feature. I'm fully aware there are not many PhysX games but the PhysX games I do have, I enjoy very much.

Oh, yeah you should be fine for just regular surround then.

ASUS GTX570 DirectCU II gets my vote, though TF2 is an awesome choice too. I'd only take the cheaper reference version if you're considering watercooling, or really strapped for cash.
post #29 of 30
Ya, the 3D thing needs a lot of power as it is basically displaying to screens on to one
plus you have to have monitors with a 120hz. refresh rate

regular surround is your game displayed across 3 screens so you have a much higher
res.
