Hi,
I was thinking about what i should get ( I going to sell my sig rig for 2850 EUR ^^)
GPU: What is the best gtx 590 (water cooled?) or grx 570 SLI?)

Screen: Should I get a 23" 120 Hz screen or 3 22" Monitors for a surround setup?

And how does the card's memory keep up?

They will provide similar results for the most part in surround vision 3D. Get what is cheaper .

Edit: The 590 isn't a bad option Hardware Heaven has a good review for the 590 with Surround Vision/3D (I think one game).

Surround and 3D, its pretty much personal.
I don't like 3D, and I like surround.
Others just like one big monitor, and others like 3D and surround. Its all about cost pretty much.

A couple of 570s or a 590 on its own, will have a hard time to max things out in surround, and in many cases you will have to lower your details / DX in order for it to be playable in surround.
3D is pretty much the same, but for a single 3D monitor, a couple of 570s or a 590 is enough.

And 590 vs 570s, its just about taste. If you like to get one strong GPU now, and maybe in the future get another one cheap for quad, or just get 2.

Or should I get some 6950/6970's?
But I'm afraid of noise and drivers....

Get 1x 120hz 3D monitor. Regardless of 3D, 120hz rocks and in future you could always throw in 2 more for the surround (if identical screen is still produced at this time).

GPU choice - both are good though you can save a lot by going with 2x480.
If you'll manage to get custom Gigabyte, you'll have good stock OC, and these are much cooler and quieter than stock 480 - while still being cheaper than 570 or 590...

3D's kind of a gimmick right now, and doesn't have extensive support across many games. Arguably won't really pick up for another 2-3 years. Go with the surround setup, also, benches now prove that a 570SLI outperform a 590 while being more cost effective, cooler, and drawing less power.

Have you tried it? I respect that some don't like it due to stress on eyes but to me and many others it's phenomenal - this alone brought me back to gaming again. Check out 3D Vision thread, there is plenty happy customers

You're wrong, many games support it (albeit some better than others, there are tweaks though to make most work).

Games like Just Cause 2 or Metro 2033 in 3D are spectacular, once you've tried and switch to 2D it's so dull.

Don't forget that 120hz makes for a better 2D experience too.

If you are planning on playible framerates you will need at least 580s in tri sli. Im running 2 480s in sli 2d surround and I'm barely pulling a 60 fps in new games and 3d tends to cut fps in half.
