A little help with a triple monitor and video card selection?

Hello I considering trying to setup a triple monitor setup for gaming with my computer, I currently am running one 7790 2GB video card and a ASUS 23.6 inch 1080P screen, and I'm guessing going to two more screens would put a pit of a stress on the video card so i was wondering if it was a good idea to buy another 7790 2GB and run a crossfire (witch my computer supports) if that would do the trick.

PC specs
Motherboard, ASUS M5A97 R2.0
CPU, AMD phenom II X4 965 @3.4 GHz
Memory, G,skill ripjaws series X 8GB
a 600W power supply
And of corse the ASUS 2GB 7790 graphics card.

Any help would be appreciated, and if anything els on the computer should be upgraded to help run the crossfire please let me know, thanks!!!!!

    I doubt that would be sufficient for max settings, 60fps. Something like a single R9-290 would give you more than double fps.

    3 monitors (which is effectively 3/4 of 4k res) and 6.2MP needs serious GPU power. I actually use 3x 1050 monitors, which is 5.3MP res, and the 290 is just enough.
  3. Thank you, that is quite helpful.
