So. Let's hear it

A 6870 is enough in TF2 and COD4 and such, but you'd require more for games like BC2 or even more for the newest single player games.

I play a few different games;

BFBC2
CoD Bops
TDU2
SC2

Future:
Crysis2 (if they every update it and fix the bugs)
BF3!

If you plan to play BF3 on this thing, go 6950 unlock CF or 6970 CF..proper amount of VRAM + power at the proper price smile.gif

Nice monitor, it's at the top of my wish list! However, I'm gonna wait until Kepler releases to get it along with a new video card.

What video card(s) should I upgrade to, I like to max out games.. but I think that resolution will kill my little 6870 lol, any recommendations?

This quickly becomes the problem, and is in fact my main reasons for selling my U3011. I bought a 120hz 1080p Asus monitor to replace the U3011, because that resolution takes so much hardware to fuel it's really going to be costing you for a long time to come. I had three 470's with my u3011, but the vram quickly became the limitation. Then the power draw really started becoming noticeable. And GL running tri-sli without water cooling.

Dominoes.

Yeah this is pretty solid advice. If you're buying new, and want your investment to last, I wouldn't consider any cards with less than 1.5 GB of VRAM for this res. AMD has much better price/performance offerings in that regard.

Not really. My single 470 is doing just fine, even at stock.

What kind of games were you playing with those tri-sli gtx 470? A single 6990 is not enough for dell u3011?
