Specifically from the 780 Ti TF4 to the 290X Lightning? Eyefinity is what I'm interested in. Nothing else matters. Power consumption, noise, none of it.

Just performance and triple monitor support.

Good question. I would not really know what to tell you but you may want to add more information..

What resolution do you want to game at?
What fps are you reaching for?
What games are you playing or going to play the most?
What cpu do you have? I still think this is one place everything can get bottlenecked, but again, my opinion ;)

I always prefer Nvidia cards but that's just my personal preference.

PS4 is nice but with nothing really out for it, I would wait for some deals before buying it. I have a ps3 and am going to wait a while before possibly upgrading to ps4 (it wont play all my ps3 games and that is a big investment) Also it wont do nearly as good as your pc!

Remember, I am opinionated and nothing I say or do reflects on anyone or anything else but me :finga:

The MSI GTX 780 TF4 video card you have can run three panels in what they call NVIDIA Surround. Have you not tried that?

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti is a powerful card and if you read my original review of it you can see 5760x1080 performance numbers versus the 290X.

The article is a bit dated, but the performance numbers were vaild at the time and shows that a single card with three monitors runs just fine on NVIDIA. ... iew_128012

I guess the TF4 is a pretty good card for that resolution. and as you already have one why changing it?
