Depends on the game. I got maybe 18-20 fps on Crysis 3 in the nVidia surround mode when I used it GTX 680, roughly comparable to the 970 I beleive

The 970 isn't powerful enough to properly run 1080p Surround or 4k by itself. The 970 is significantly more powerful than a 680. Some games like Crysis 3 aren't playable at Surround resolution, and some other games like BF4 are barely playable with lower settings. VRAM isn't an issue here, it's simply the amount of power the GPU has to push such a resolution.

Cheap and surround gaming do not belong in the same sentence

This. 2 960s would be the cheapest option, but that'll only give you enough performance to run medium-high settings with no AA. A friend of mine has 3 780ti in for his Surround and he still has issues with some games.
