Ok so I just ordered 3 30" Dell Monitors online, I've been looking around online and found that the 7970 6GB edition is coming out? I'm replacing my 1080p monitors with Dell 30" monitors would a 7970 6GB edition be better than perhaps a 7990 (if they are coming out)? Doesn't the resolution performance on games depend on the video ram a bit? Since when did AMD update their drivers?

If you are going to run three 30" monitors then you should go with two 7970 6gig to run at top resolution.I went with a ASUS GTX-670 DirectCU II because it is quiet and uses less power.But if you are going to run three 30'" monitors you need all te ram you can get.Amazon is a better place to buy from because they give you 30 days and they don't charge you restocking fee.

Why didn't newegg give a FULL refund, aren't they supposed to be good about that? Did they give you store credit or something? If not I'd raise hell.

Yeah well they are kinda pathetic when it comes to that sort of thing. I'm not sure if I'll shop from Newegg again. Amazon is much nicer about this kind of thing. Although Newegg is cheaper than Amazon for computer components. So I'm not sure what to think.
