So I currently have one 1440p monitor hooked up to the dual link DVI port on the back of my gpu. I recently ordered my 2nd 1440p monitor and I plan on plugging that in to the mini display port using an adapter. So my question would be where do I plug my third monitor into when I get the money to order it? The only ports left are the HDMI and regular DVI ports and neither of them have the bandwith to achieve 1440p. Would I have to buy a 2nd gtx 770 and use the mini display port or dual link DVI port on the 2nd card? Thanks in advance!

For one gaming and two browsing one 770 would be OK and use the hdmi or dp if your monitor also has them . for 3 gaming you'd need 2 780s for 3 x 1440p
You'd need 4gb vram

I dont really max out games and I was definitely planning on upgrading my GPU to run this kind of setup. My plan was to have all 3 1440p monitors hooked up to my 770 and just use it until I can get a better GPU. Is there such thing as an HDMI to display port adapter or something like that? Mainly looking to achieve 1440p on all 3 monitors without adding a 2nd GPU.(if thats even possible)

Both dvi ports are dual link dvi and support 1440p.

Thanks for the responses I really appreciate it. I tested it out and in fact both DVI ports are dual link so I can hook up 3 1440p monitors to one GPU. Thanks again!
