Hi all, I am in the process of getting a new GPU for gaming, I am thinking about getting this card: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-Nvidia-DDR5-PCI-E-Graphics/dp/B00CU9GOAO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1409667398&sr=8-1&keywords=770+4gb+windforce

I currently have 3 Asus VN247H's: http://www.amazon.co.uk/VN247H-23-6-inch-Widescreen-Multimedia-1920x1080/dp/B00A4415KG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1409667445&sr=8-1&keywords=vn247h

My other specs are:

CPU: i7 4770K
RAM: 8gb dominator platinum @ 1600mhz
Mobo: MSI z87-gd65
HDD: caviar black 1tb
SSD: evo 240
PSU: corsair cx750m

Now, will this card run all three screens with high settings on most games for the future year or so with 30+ fps? Will 750 watts power this card and the rest of my system? Any better/cheaper alternatives? I really appreciate the help!

If you could tell us how many GHz your CPU is, that would be great, that is most likely a factor too.

In Windows, open Control Panel, click on System and Security, then click on System, then under System, it should be under the Windows Experience Index Rating. It should say something like "Intel Core i7 [model number] CPU @ -.-- GHz." If there are two numbers that say different things, for example Intel Core i7-000000 CPU @ 2.55 GHz 3.55 GHz, then the higher one is the turbo boost if you decide to do that (sometimes this is called overclocking).

That should be more than enough, though you may want to consider upgrading the RAM to 12 or 16 GB, as sometimes when alot of resources are being consumed because of the programs, monitors, etc., 8 GB may not be enough. But when the system runs out of memory, it does what's called paging, where it reserves part of the disk as memory. 8 GB may be enough, but you may want to consider upgrading.

Upgrading RAM is simple, but if you need help, consult the internet. Or YouTube.

Also, when I saw the monitor, I was like, I want that too.

Yeah I am more of a software person so I know about RAM, Paging etc ;) I am getting another 8Gb eventually as running Visual Studio, Eclipse and games VM's get's a little too much :).

Thanks, so I should run all three screns at 1080p with good frame rates for a while? :D And my PSU is enough?

Sorry I never replied, I've been busy.

You may want to consider getting a bit more powerful power supply. 750 should be good but you may want to consider it. But running at 1080p with high frame rates should be good with 8GB and 750W.. It's like 4K you'd need more powerful. One thing about 4K, that is 2160p.
