I'm building my first PC soon, mostly for gaming at 1080p. I've got an asus directcu ii oc r9 290 gpu which should be able to do that comfortably. But I'm thinking of buying two more monitors for racing games. I was wondering if I ran the games at 720p would the r9 290 be able to keep up?

Hey,

At 720p a triple monitor setup should run without a problem assuming you are playing racing games which are generally not too intensive. You might even be able to run them at a higher resolution but with slightly lower graphical settings.


According to Anandtech, the R290 will run GRID 2 maxed out at 1080p with a triple monitor setup, netting you a healthy 58FPS.

Hope this helps!
