Bought monitors for a surround view system. What do I need to hook it all up and how do I go about doing it?

I have recently purchased three of these monitors: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=24-236-...

If possible I would like to do an all HDMI setup. If this is not possible, what cables/adapters will I need to get this up and running? I currently have an AsRock z87 Extreme3 MoBo and an ASUS GTX 770. I will be upgrading to an EVGA Titan next paycheck (No need to debate there, already done that on other threads).

The 770 only has 1 hdmi port so you can't do 3. You can use any port and the monitors come with dvi cables so you can just do 2 dvi and 1 hdmi.

Well you would be better off adding a second GTX 770 in SLI there is no debate that is simply the truth. But if a Titan is what you want to waist your money on it is your choose so good luck with that. As for doing all three monitors though HDMI well even the Titan only has one HDMI port so you would have to get DVI-HDMI adapters for the other two. Although you could just go DVI>DVI since it is still digital. The monitors support DVI so that should not be a problem. I have three VK278Q Asus 27" monitors all running though DVI.

Sorry, I failed to mention that my GTX 770 is a 2GB card which will not be able to run a triple monitor display for new gen gaming and some heavy photoshop work.

Thank you for the help with the monitor setup though. Glad to know I don't need to buy a bunch of cables.
