Triple Display and different aspect ratios?

I am looking to set up a triple display for my gaming PC, mainly for sim games like Mechwarrior Online, Warthunder, Star Citizen etc. I am wondering how viable it would be to use a 27" monitor as the center monitor and then using 24" monitors as the side monitors, but set up in portrait mode. This won't let the cockpit wrap around as much as if you were using three 24" monitors, but I'd really like the extra real estate on the center screen, as the sides tend to mainly just be for excess eye candy and immersion. Will a single card be able to run this, or would I be better off using one card for the main screen, and one for the outside monitors? Will I have sync issues? Any thoughts or insights before investing in the setup is highly appreciated. Thanks.

Yeah I know I can power three monitors, but I haven't been able to find a way to set the main monitor in landscape and the "surround" monitors in portrait. Also not sure if the resolutions will limit me with trying to do it this way, and if I will be getting black bars somewhere on the screen because of resolution matching issues.

your GPU will adjust the resolution settings automatically
