what upgrades do i need for a decent 3-way monitor setup

#1DarkAssAssIn051Posted 10/12/2013 1:08:31 PM
this is my current build

i5 2300 (upgradeing to an 3770k later)
geforce 660ti 2gb reference card
16gb crusial balistics ram 1866hz (i was using it in a a10 5800k budget build i just put it in this build)

i was thinking of getting a better motherboard that supports lga 1155 and 3 way sli and getting two more 660 ti would that do 3 way monitors perfectly i'm not looking for much just each monitor running the games at 1080p each monitor

it may be cheaper for you to pick up 2 7970's and use the 660ti as a physx card.

I wouldn't worry about the CPU as far as the monitor setup goes.

also... is this the ram you have? if so we have the same kit... doesn't really matter, just thought it was worth mentioning. (well mine is 4x4gb, but they're still the tactical brand)
