Okay that's fine, it was more of me being curious about multi monitor than me actually running that set-up.

Any idea when the 4GB 770's will be here? I am getting antsy waiting BUT I really like the idea of the Boost 2.0 since I have read that Nvidia chip sets are harder to OC compared to ATI. That alone makes me want to wait.

Thanks

They aren't harder, just Boost 1.0 went by a TDP limit due to the 600 series being 6+6pin. The 700 series has a higher TDP and has a 6+8pin configuration to draw more power. They go by temp rather than TDP and you can adjust that temp cap for the boost.

So basically speaking, unless you had a modded bios you couldn't go very high with the 680s and 670. That is resolved with the 700 series.

I have no idea when they will come, but I predicted Haswell later in June and they are already here so hoping sooner than later. I want to sell a guitar for a 4GB 770 because I would rather have that over a 3GB 780.

Hmm interesting thanks,

Well guess I'll wait, after doing some research the 770 series seems worth the wait (hopefully not that long of a wait). I guess I can have a glorified web surfing/Minecraft playing PC for a little while longer lol.

Thanks

Yea definitely worth the wait. It's a 680 for the price of a 670. The 4GB 680s were closer to 600 bucks and these should be closer to 500 until they start dropping.

YES 4GB's are in stock, any reason not to go with this card. http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130925

Or wait for something else?
