Double or Triple Pane Windows?

We are replacing some windows in our townhouse, it sits at 9200 feet in the rocky mountains. Cold is -20F. Hot is 85F. Double and triple pane windows end up costing about the same (with in a few dollars). But the triple pane are known to have more hardware issues (they are heavier).
I am not an engineer, so the question is: Given Low E glass and similar construction are how much more efficient are the triple pane windows compared with the double?
