I just won a desktop from a giveaway, here's the specs:

Casing: Cooler Master Cosmos SE
Power Supply: Cooler Master V1200
CPU cooling: Cooler Master Nepton 280L
Motherboard: ASRock Z97 Extreme4
CPU: Intel Intel Core i7-4790
Graphics Cards: EVGA GeForce GTX 760 Dual FTW 4GB w/ EVGA ACX Cooler 04G-P4-3768-KR
Memory: HyperX HyperX FURY Blue 8GB (2x4GB) 1866MHz CL10 HX318C10FK2/8
SSD: HyperX HyperX 3K 120GB SH103S3/120G
Headsets: HyperX HyperX Cloud KHX-H3CL/WR
Mouse: Razer DeathAdder
Keyboard: Razer BlackWidow Ultimate 2014

What I would like to do is (along with RAM and drive upgrades) is add 2 more of that card in 3 way sli, and get another 2 benq 144hz moniters(I already have 1) for three moniter gaming. I just need to know if this is at all possible and if there are any others conflictions with the build upgrade.

I also just a few months ago bought a $2200 laptop for the purpose of high power gaming. D:

well, you might want to read up on the 3-way SLI front and see if adding 2 more of those cards is worth the expense for the performance you'll get out of it for whatever game you're playing

IMO it's not worth it, sell that card on ebay and upgrade to a R9 290X

Not sure if I get the box for the card, which would be a problem. It looks ok to get 3 way, not amazing. The biggest problem I can think of would be cooling. Also need to know about the 3 144hz moniter set up. Would also need to know what 3 way sli bridge to use.

The mobo doesn't support sli with 3 cards. I know it says quad sli, but that's for 2 dual gpu cards.

I would just go run 2 760s, but I'd like to be able to play decently graphically intense games with the 3 monitor setup, 60fps with decent graphics settings. Like I said, the biggest problem I see is that I don't think I get the box and stuff for the 760, so idk if I can sell it easily.

Sell the 760 on ebay, i would suggest selling the laptop now that you have a desktop and buy: 2 R9 290X's, 2 R9 290's or GTX 780's. The R9 290X's would be best, you get the R9 290's if you can't afford the GTX 780's or you get the GTX 780's if thats as high as you can go.

it might be a bit squishy but i don't think you should fork that much money out on a card, go for a Gigabyte Windforce R9 290X or a Sapphire Vapor-X R9 290X. if you were to go that high just get the Sapphire, its the best R9 290X, lightning is a waist trust me the sapphire one will do you best. if you have anymore questions just ask.
