Best GPU for under 300$ for 3 monitor setup?

Recommended Posts

I would like to run 3 monitors (19 inch, 24 inch, 19 inch) from 1 or 2 GPU's. What's my best buy for under 300$ ? (i mainly use FSX, some xplane and Aerofly FS)I'm thinking HD6950? I looked at several posts and the FSX benchmark results but couldn't get to a conclusion.My PC:I7 2600K, 8GB ram, SSD

Well, if money will let you, go for two GTX 580's or get a single 7970. But if you have a limited budget, the 6950 will work.Although it is a good card, running FSX at extreme resolution will really toll your FPS and bring your system to it's knees.I used to have 3 1080P monitors but sold them off due to performance being absolutley awful.
