Hey guys I need a beefy single GPU for my triple monitor setup running at a bezzel corrected resolution of 5980 x 1080. Would a single 770 or 7970 be enough? Not planning on having games super maxed or anything like that but i'd like to game on decent settings / 60 FPS

Specs:
i5-2500k @ 4.6 Ghz
16 GB G.Skill DDR 3 1600
Corsair TX 750 V2
Asus P8P67LE mobo

If your 660Ti doesn't, it's unlikely 770 or 7970 will. Go 780 or wait for the new AMD cards.

I like to upgrade every two gens, so wait until the new AMD cards, as above, or wait for the 8xx Nvidia. I hear they are coming Q1 2014.
You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

Well, how many FPS is your 660 Ti producing?

I think for that resolution you'd really want either SLI or a Titan.
Fan of metal? Don't mind covers? Check out my youtube and give me some feedback

The new R9-290/X will probably be what you want.

Leaked surround benches are looking good.

Thank you so much for advice guys, I'll make sure to heed your suggestions and wait for the R9 series cards come Q1 2014.

@MasterDonGero - On most less demanding titles like COD, Crysis 2, SR 4, Mass Effect, Far Cry 3 etc my overclocked 660 Ti can still pull 30 FPS on average as long as I turn off AA or keep it at a minimum but that's way too low for me. ENB modded Skyrim is a nightmare to run on a triple monitor setup.
