Hello!

I was wondering if anyone could suggest a GPU for the build I have going on. Here's the link to the parts I was thinking about using. (If you have any suggestions for other parts, that'd be great!)

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1FOll

This is primarily being built for algorithm design and the software I use for that, is almost all cpu dependent. Hence the FX-8350.

Although, since I have 3 monitors to hook up to it, I figured I might as well add a gpu that can play Team Fortress 2 on all 3 monitors, cause that's a game I enjoy and all I really have time for.

The monitors are Acer X221W's and they are 1680 x 1050 resolution.

Other notes: I'd like to go as cheap as possible but with room in the case and on the PSU and Mobo to upgrade to more of a mid-range GPU later on, that I could play Battlefield 4 on.

Any help is much appreciated! This is my first build, and although it's exciting, somewhat daunting being a noob.

Thanks!

Hi, if you are looking to play TF2 in eyefinity, then you dont really require a massively powerfull card as the game is slightly old and does scale very well.

Anything from the AMD 5xxx and above series will work just fine, also since Nvidia GTX6xx they now support 3 displays (nvidia surround) from a single card.

The 7770 you have in your list will work well for TF2 :)
