I have considered multi-monitor gameplay. I don't have the money right now to buy the screens for it.

One problem I have heard about with the Nvidia on multi-monitor is most of theirs cards are 2GBs. Doing multi-monitor is very memory intensive for the cards and 3GBs (or more) is recommend. You can buy 4Gb 660 tis, but they do cost more of course. SLI I heard helps but I haven't had the opportunity to test it myself (see previous comment on money). Note on SLI, 2 cards does not mean twice the memory. Memory is duplicated in each card so you have the same as one.

I bought all 4 of my monitors for under 200$ at 24" and they work fine excluding the big bezels

And of course I know that and it plays plenty of games fine until you get into crysis and AC than I get very poor 20FPS
But as above, mass effect works great

I got my 27" for 200$. I like it a lot. I may change setup later but I am happy for now.

And Crysis 3 is beast even to play at 1080p, let alone on 4 monitors. I don't know what the requirements are for the new AC but they must be pretty high too. I've seen 3 monitors setups but I haven't seen someone do 4. Must be a pretty sweet setup.

You cannot play more than 3 on Nvidia the 4 is just to see shit while I play


I do want to upgrade to 30" to get over a 7k res by 1440p but I do not have sufficent funds and I need a new card

Yea, I thought only 3 monitors but I wasn't sure. I knew AMDs only did three.

Still, nice setup. 7k by 1440p. That would require some serious hardware. But seeing as you already spend 800 on monitors and at least 400-600 on graphics cards, plus all the supporting hardward... I am guessing your willing to pay the price. At least when funds are available.

Heh, I guess I had it backwards.

Yea, the Phenom 965 is pretty good but I think for that setup you would do better with an FX 8XXX chip or Intel i5/7. of course as budget allows. ^^
