  1. It's going to be reasonably difficult to build a computer possible to run games at 5760x1080 (assuming that's what you mean by 3 1080p monitors). I might be wrong though, maybe you can squeeze in a couple of 7870s or something.

  2. iT doesnt has to be 3 monitors if the budget isnt enough. just 1 will work
  3. Look at this thread I wrote yesterday http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1660017/build-idea-budget-builder.html
    Should do what you need.
    Since you have the OS you can bump the GPU up or save money.

    You could get an FX-6300 and a 970 or 960 motherboard for a bit better performance/dollar, as well as getting the 7870XT would be a nice addition, this combined could really benefit your build as a whole.

    Anyways everything else on this list is fine, though a z77 motherboard for an i3 is a bit of a silly idea as you will never use it, H77 or B75 would do just fine. As well as the Cooler, since you can't overclock why get one?
  6. Im using the Microcenter bundle offer. so i can only either buy a intel core i5-3570k or a intel core i3-3225 with these motherboards.

    and i was thinking that what about if i change the 7870 and buy a 7950 from Newegg . its $755 after rebates
