Triple Panel Gaming
 
What kind of horsepower it would take to drive 3 1920x1080 23" panels?

2X 7970 OR 2X gtx680

2 x GTX580s still does a good job...

What about overclocked 670s or 7950s? What if they have a higher memory?

I know there's nothing wrong with them, but I was looking for something a little cooler running/less power hungry :blarg:

670s in SLI should do just fine, they are probably faster than 2 x GTX580

I have a buddy, [Killswitch],and he runs 3 monitors with only ONE Radeon. I think it's the 7870.

To be honest I'd recommend grabbing a single 2560x1440 or 2560x1600 panel, I find the experience much better for gaming.

One single panel is certainly less of a pain in the ass. However in games like BF3 the triple panel definitely gives you a bit of an edge.

It's a shame you can't buy a single panel that is the same length of two monitors but without the bezel. Add a slight curve to it and I'd buy....
