I'm planning a new build with an MSI Z77, i5 3570k, Gigabyte GTX 680 4GB, Corsair TX750 750W PSU, and most importantly, an LG 29EA93 aka a 29" display at 2560x1920. Will I bottleneck? In case your wondering, my case (no pun intended) is an NZXT Phantom 410 and I have 16 GB of RAM.

Best solution

Nope! No bottleneck in your system, even at higher resolutions -- the display size does not matter -- I have a 42" monitor and it makes no difference when I use my 23" one.

Alright, one more thing if it's alright: do you recommend a monitor at 21:9 or two or three individual monitors?

That's up to personal preference.

2x 21:9 would be a dream! ;) 

It is up to you, and your needs.

3x 21:9 + swivel chair would be a true dream

I'm confused by what you're saying. Higher resolutions and display size are two separate things. If your 42" TV is the same resolution as the 23" one, than yeah, there is no difference as far as the GPU is concerned. If you're talking about playing on a 1080p monitor versus a 2560x1920, that's a difference of some 3,000,000 pixels being rendered, and a single 680 will not be enough to run that resolution at the highest settings in certain games. So yeah, in that situation the GPU would eventually become the bottleneck.

Yeah it can be confused, mean resolution and display size -- just think that a display supports several resolutions: 1080p, 720p, and so on and forth.
