What video card should I buy to reach a decent fps by maxing out the graphics setting in games i'm playing like Tomb Raider, Batman, BF4, CoD etc for 1080p and 1440p. Also I will try triple monitors in the future so there will be chance i will do SLI or crossfire.

My current specs.

i5-4670k
gigabyte z87x-ud3h
seasonic 520watts (I will upgrade this for my future SLI)
RAM (2x4gb) 1866mhz
nzxt phantom 410
sapphire hd 7770 vapor x oc edition

It's going to be really costly to max games at 1440p or higher.

Since you're going triple monitors I suggest sticking with AMD's superior Eyefinity.

A single R9 290 will do fairly well at 1440p. Maybe two 290X for three of the same monitors.

Your Seasonic 520W is enough for one card. For two, you need at least 750W.

For 1080p monitors, an overclocked R9 280X for one, or two R9 290 for Eyefinity.

Same power requirements.

I suggest waiting for the 280X prices to drop and the 290/290X custom variants to come out.

Please suggest a gpu which I can buy now for 1080p or 1440p then after for a certain months i will buy a 2 additional monitor then will buy the same gpu to be a crossfire.

If 1080p, get the R9 290

If 1440p, get the R9 290X

Nvidia sucks at triple monitor gaming.

Nvidia does not suck at tripple monitor gaming. Can i see your source because nvidia has delivered the graphic cards for years were Amd slacks abit.
Btw i would go for gtx 780ti. Its the best graphic card on the planet at the moment http://www.hwcompare.com/16369/geforce-gtx-780-ti-vs-ra...

last i checked nvidia had sync and pacing problems in multi monitor setup. i have not seen a single person recommend nvidia cards for multimonitor and have not seen any videos or pictures showing his nvidia surround setup. all i see is eyefinity.

520W would be dangerously low for an R9 290X.
