Edit: Many of the replies say you need three not two, if i ran my current gtx 670 with two monitors and then ran a third monitor on this http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX... what frame rate will it run at?

Won't run nicely, but why 2 monitors? As far as I'm aware, you can't play games such as bf3 on two monitors...

Open Nvidia control panel>>set up multiple displays>>choose what you want
Have both monitors plugged in & make sure both come up as displays, in control panel.

Should have no problems 30+ FPS can be expected, but you'll have problems aiming because the crosshair is in between the two monitors.

Best solution

one monitor and a 670 is way better. 650 can barely keep up with one, much less two. not even the titan keeps 60+ fps at three montior on ultra. Get the 670 and one screen, as the extra two only add a bit of peripheral vision.

Could I run one monitor for games and the other to have a recording software open while i play?

you can run the recording programs in the background. You don't need a second screen for this.

Oh and btw, take a look at shadowplay on the 760.
