business purposes only. I currently am running 3 1080p displays, but want to upgrade to 3 displays running 2560x1440(or 1600). What would be best video card to get? Best would be dual link DVI and not display port, as it seems monitors with dual link are still much cheaper then display port monitors. I know I can get a display port to dual link converter, but they are an additional $99 on Amazon. Any good solutions with at least 3 dual link outputs on one video card?

Your budget would help, but right off the bat you are looking at an Nvidia card as they tend to rely more on Dual DVI and HDMI, while AMD tends to favor Displayport. In fact, for business purposes, you can get just about any Nvidia GTX 600 series card which will typically have two Dual Link DVI ports and a single HDMI.

I can recommend a GTX 660 for just under $200, which is a good card and could even do some triple screen gaming with reduced settings. Depending on your specific needs and budget, you could also go for a 2GB GTX 650 Ti Boost for about $160.

Budget not a big deal if it's 200 or 400. HDMI will not support those resolutions if I understand correctly thus the reason I need dual link or display port

All of the above support higher resolutions. The only one that doesn't is single link DVI.
