Just curious if anyone is using a single GTX 680 or GTX 670 with tri-monitors. Wondering if I should pick up a 3rd Dell Ultrasharp U2312HM. From the benchmarks I've seen a single GTX 680 gets roughly 30-40 FPS on 3x1080p with fully maxed settings. I'm wondering what kind of performance it can get in the med-high setting range.

AMD has a good history of multi-monitor setups , now i'm sure 2 monitors won't be a problem for a 680 , is it 2GB or 4GB?

I don't think nvidia supports more than 2 monitors at a time without Sli . I could be wrong but ATI has the multi monitor down

The GTX 670 and 680 both power 3 monitors. Those days of needing two cards were gone when the 600 series was launched.

I <3 my tri-monitor setup on my 4GB 670.  Though, the only game I really play with all three monitors is GRID, and that game is old enough that my 670 eats it up without a second thought.

It looks like I need to get into the 600 series. I really want to get a 32" tv to hang above my monitor setup to add a little more productivity to my sound production... as well as being able to watch tv from my bed :teehee:

Just picked up 3rd monitor for $150. I'm sure if I drop AA down a bit, it will hit 60 FPS easily. Just need to find a display port cable.

I'm running two 32" Samsungs (UN32EH5000) @1080p on my GTX680 without breaking a sweat. If I had more desk space I would throw in a third, but I don't. At least not at this time.
