  3. 3GB or 6GB video card

I have three monitors and play games on 1920 x 1080; does that mean the 6GB video card is unnecessary?

Also...How do you even get the resolution higher? It depends on the video card? The highest it will allow me to go is 1920 x 1080.

Thanks.

You mean that you want to do 5760x1080 eyefinity/surround?

You wouldn't want more than 1920x1080 on a single monitor anyway, not unless you were downsampling.

Either way, 3GB is fine

Resolution depends on your monitor man.It will not go higher than what it made to do. Also 6GB would be overkill for that anyways.

Ah, I thought that's why you had 3 monitors..

A 3GB card would be fine if you have no plans to use Eyefinity or Nvidia Surround and only use the extra monitors for multi-tasking.
