Hi, i am creating a triple monitor gaming pc for flight simming, and would like a good graphics card (approx 500.00) but it needs to have 2 x HDMI and 1 x DVI can anyone help please?

Outside of a GTX 590, your only options are AMD-based solutions or a dual-card setup.

I would go with a HD 7970 since it has 3 gigs of memory and should play all three of your monitors as for as that goes the HD7950 also has 3gigs of memory and should play all three of your monitors and has plenty of power most I read about will overclock past a 1000mhz and around 1150mhz with voltage tweaks and up to 6000mhz on the memory.Just lookind at the reviews the 7970 is only around 2 to 4 FPS faster,so the HD7950 is the better deal.What makes a big plus is that the 7950 only uses around 150watts of power compare that to a GTX 580 which uses around 240watts.IMO the HD 7950 is just the best card out at the moment for the price.Nvidia probally want have nothing out untill this summer and you would have to go with a SLI set-up to play three monitors.

+1, unless it's out of your price range, then a 7950. You'll need that 3GB of VRAM for triple monitor gaming.

I think the HD7990 is coming out on the 12th of next month, pretty hefty price though..$849

the gtx 590 has 3 dvi and one mini-hdmi. Your best bet is the galaxy gtx 580 mdt x4:


it has 3 hdmi and a displayport. the package comes with a dp to dvi adapter so you will have your 1 dvi.
