Hi, could i get a recommendation for a Nvidia graphics card that supports 144Hz (or at least 120Hz) for three monitors (BenQ XL2411T). Or how i could get all three monitors working on my current GPU (2GB XFX HD7870 Black Edition DD (has 1 x DL DVI, 1 x SL DVI, 1 x HDMI, 2 x Mini Display port)).

Just use some converters, I would use the HDMI and the two display link ports, really any combination should work though.

I cant have all three at 144 Hz though because of the single link DVI supporting only 60Hz and the HDMI supporting only 60Hz and the mini display ports supporting 60Hz (what i've been told)

sounds like your gpu maxes out at 60hz. hdmi 1.4 goes higher, and so does displayport. Yes, you do need a dual link dvi cable to support that resolution at that frequency, but if even dp is stuck at 60, then it must be either your gpu or your monitor.

Your current HD7870 should support 3 monitors at 144Hz just fine, assuming you can connect the 3 monitors to any of the 3 ports on the video card.

Edit: cancel my first post.
This *might* work:

Displayport 1.2:

I am not 100% sure it will work, but I think it will based on various spurious information. Can someone else confirm or deny?
