This poll is now closed.
I'll probably end up doing 3 monitors at 1080p If I can deal with those blind spots in between monitors. If not I'll be doing a single monitor, not sure if I'll go over 1080p. But I won't consistently high FPS.


I'll be playing games like GTA, Watch Dogs, Skyrim, Elder Scrolls Online...etc.

This purchase will be made Friday, so i'll keep bumping the poll until then and hoping for some good discussion on which would be best. I don't plan on anymore upgrades after this for at least 4 or 5 years.


Prices if this will help people.

7990 ~$700
7970(6GB) ~$500
2x7970(3GB) ~$600
GTX 780 ~$700
GTX 770(4GB) ~$500

Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.

I intended on getting the 780 So i was willing to kick out a little over $700. But If I can get better price to performance ratio that will last me. I'd take all the advice I can get.

On paper, but I'd like to know if anyone has experience with it. As far as stability. Also based on the states it's really only comparable to the Titan. But I'm curious about real world performance.

If it's an unstable card I was thinking I might as well SLI or Crossfire 2 cheaper cards

2 7970s ghz is the most powerful, 7990 the best deal, 780 is almost as powerful and you don't have to deal with crossfire.

You gotta decide what's important to you.

I'd say hold off until AMD releases the second part of their Crossfire fix. At this point in time, none of those setups will drive three monitors smoothly in any reasonably demanding game.

Good info, I heard July 31st was the date for the fix, correct?

That was the first part. The second part should be coming in a few weeks. As of right now, eyefinity isn't supported.
