Hello! Here is my plan, I am going to buy one 24 inch 1080p gaming monitor. Once I have more money saved buy another Gigabyte GTX 970 and two more of the same monitors. I would be gaming on these, any ideas if it will work? Here is the rest of my build: http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/partlist/(Note: I have a 2.0TB HDD and a copy of 8.1 at home)
Oh quick thing, if you think it will work, what monitor do you recommend? And if you don't think it will work, any ideas on what will?
Thanks!

The ones I'm using are these: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00B2HH7G0/?tag=pcpapi-20
I enjoy these(although i don't use Surround because the bezel on these are kinda large), because theres a 1ms input delay, which is virtually unnoticeable, as well as running at a high refresh rate and being to rune in 1440p as well.

But more or less, as long as the refresh rate is high, the input delay is low, the only difference will be brand names. ASUS, benQ, Acer, and Samsung all make great monitors.

The link you posted isn't the link to the build you're thinking about.(At the top of the system build page, there should be a link that looks like http://pcpartpicker.com/p/letters&numbers. Link that URL and we'll be able to help you better in the future.)



But if you're going to run two 970s, you won't have any issues running three monitors.

I thought your question re triples involved only 1 970, as I have the same question (i.e. 1080p triples for sim-racing, like AC in high settings) with a single 970. I'm sure it should work fine w/ SLI though, but I'm searching for the cheapest single GPU solution.

Part of the issue that running a game across three monitors on one card puts a huge load on it, so apart from buying a really high end card, like the 980ti(when it comes out), or something like a Titan, buying two 970s would be cheaper and most effective.
