My System Specs


Either high end Nvidia's or AMD's will run 3 screens. (Nvidia will actually do 4 now, 3 in game and a extra desktop screen)

For 3 monitors any single card will struggle (depending on the settings used) but I wouldn't suggest anything short of a 7970 / 680 (and overclock them) for gaming across 3 monitors.

2 560 ti's were quite a bit more powerful than a 580(approx 20 - 30%) and the 7970 was about the same.

Driver updates and the Ghz / OC editions would take it past those levels where a 7950 is scoring about the same as 2 560ti's in 3d mark and a 7970 is showing 20 - 30% faster than the 560's

Very hard to compare the cards through different generations of drivers and software revisions of games etc. But if you look at any of the reviews they should have your res covered.
Some may be in a different section others withing each tests results. you can take from that what you will.

I know what I would be choosing (especially with the games they're giving away now)
