I was thinking of getting a 5850 but I thought it was too much for my budget. I currently have (3x) 20" 1860x150 Acer Monitors. I want to do eyefinity but I'm not sure if all the 5000 series supports it. If the 5770 supports it then I will do that. What games would that be able to handle (Eyefinity, Mostly max settings, No AA or AF) Games like MW2, L4D2, GTAIV, Perhaps crysis? Please fill me up to date on what the 5770 vs the 5850 can do. Thanks to all.

to run crysis or gta on remotely good settings with eyefinity, you'll need a 5850 or 5870 minimum. The other games in eyefinity mode can be done on the 57xx cards. All 5xxx cards can do eyefinity.

To run 3 monitors on one 5000series card, you need to have one monitor with a Displayport. In you are planning to use a 5770 to play on those 3 monitors, i doubt you'll max any game out, not to mention aa/af.
