    One Nvidia gtx970 and three monitors?

    Hi, I'm thinking of buying either a tripple screen setup or an ultra wide 21:9 monitor. So my question is to everyone who is using one nvidia gtx970 with three monitors. What resolution, graphics settings and framerate do you get?

    Thanks!
    Windows 8.1 - Intel i5-4460 3.2GHz - 8GB RAM - NVIDIA GeForce GTX970 - Logitech G27

    Maxter what is your ram usage. The good ol 3.5gb thing might be an issue for the 970.

    Ps nice chip (CPU) you got there

    Folks, just remember that performance is only as good as your next bottleneck. If you have a lower CPU and purchase a high-end graphics card, you'll be limited by CPU.

    With pCARS, CPU is just as important as GPU. At least with GPU, you can turn down the detail settings to improve performance. About all you can do to help with CPU is to use few AI cars.

    That doesn't seem right... should be higher.

    Are your drivers up-to-date? What other programs are running in the background? What downsampling option are you using?
