Best option under $300

Recommended Posts

Ok team, looking at options for a buddy of mine.  He currently has an Asus 6850, and is looking to upgrade.  Budget is 300 or less.  would he be better suited buying something new, or getting another 6850 for cross fire?  Also, he is using a ASRock 970 Extreme3 mobo, any conflicts with that?  Thanks in advance...

amd 7950 or the new gtx760 with a 3rd party cooler and he should be set for quite some time.

Can the 7950 run three screens?  If not, what would I need to make that work?

Gaming or just using three screens?

If it will game on all three, so much the better.  He would AT LEAST want it to run three screens while gaming on one of them.

You really need CF to run 3 screens. I ran 3 with one 7950 and it had some major slow downs(Burnout Paradise, Skyrim and Grid 2). When I got my 2nd 7950 it solved that.

asking to much, if he can afford a 3 screen set-up he can afford a better card.
