Default Re: Best Gaming Card

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.
