I didn't know under what section I had to post this but here's my question: what are the minimum system specs if you want to play at 5760 x 1080?


CPU: Intel Core i7 4790K @ 4.4GHz (cooled by Corsair H110) Motherboard: ASUS Maximus VI Formula RAM: 16GB DDR3 1600MHz CL9 | GPU: ASUS GTX780TI-DC2OC-3GD5 Case: NZXT Phantom 630 Storage: Samsung 840 Pro 128GB + 3 x WD Black 500GB  + WD Black 1TB + WD Black 2TB + Kingston V300 120GB PSU: SeaSonic Platinum 660W Monitors: 3 x Iiyama ProLite XU2390HS-1 Keyboard: Logitech G910 Orion Spark Mouse: Logitech G502 Protheus Spectrum Mousemat: Steelseries QcK Heavy (40x45) Headset: Kingston HyperX Cloud II Speakers: Logitech Z906

I'd recommend at least a quad core, 8 gigs of ram, and a 7850 with 2gb or VRAM, or it's nvidia equivalent.

Minimum doesn't mean good experience though.

if you run BF3, all on ultra & 5760 x 1080, can a single 660ti give more than 30FPS?

even a single 7970 is hard pressed in triple screen.
If you want to do triple screen i recommend a multi card set up. as whats the point of a more immersive gaming experience if you gotta lower the details to run it well?

Can a single GTX Titan handle that?

I'd like to say so, but is it the best value for money solution is the question?

What do you suggest? Should I wait for the GTX 780? (which will be like $300 less)

I'd personally wait if you can. More than likely, the 600 series cards will go down in price as well.

But newer games will require better/newer GPU's, not?

True, but in triple monitor setups, more GPU RAM is better, which the GTX 6 series doesn't excel in. I suggest either going AMD, or as you said the GTX 780, also remember the Titan will come down around $200 from what I heard when the GTX 780 comes out. So about $100-250USD price difference for 1gb VRAM (get the 780).

2x 7970's can give you acceptable performance at 5760x1080 with decent amount of settings. It is also the most cost effective choice than Titan.

For me graphics count a lot, if I want to go triple monitors I want to play all on ultra, price isn't going to be a problem  ;)

Eh, i would say wait for the 700 series to come out, and grab 2 x 4gb 680s when their price drops.

Or wait until AMD sorts out the xFire frame delay issues (Which they are working on releasing a new driver for) and grab 2 7970Ghz Editions.

Well, if price isn't an issue, 3-4 Titans will let you play even Crysis 3 at max settings at 5760x1080.

It depends on the settings, application, etc.

That may be a bit misleading to some people since Crysis 3 is unusually demanding, unlike many games.

Well, OP did say that he wanted all games on ultra at 5760x1080 and price wasn't an issue.

Crysis 3 like the original Crysis before it, is a good benchmark on how long your current hardware will last you. So if your hardware can run the game at full on max with higher than HD resolutions, it'll serve you a few years down the road.

The 700 series look very interesting
