I'm planing to upgrade my setup to 1x 2560x1440 and 2x 1440x900 monitors. As my actual graphics card, a HD 6870, would be too slow for gaming in these resolution i'm searching for an upgrade. So i looked for a R9 280X or a GTX 770, both are comparable in price and performance. For gaming i like AMD's technologies like Mantle API and Eyefinity but i often read about problems with multi monitor setups on the 280X. For the GTX 770 i don't either found informations about support for multi monitor or the useable ports.
Maybe one of you using one of this cards and multi monitor could give me some advice :)

The rest of my system:

Intel i7 2600k
GigaByte Z68 UD3H B3
Corsair Vegance 4x4GB @ 1600MHz
250GB SSD + multiple HDDs

Hey bud, which card did you end up going with?

Did you get the three monitors working?
