I am building a PC for 3 x 27" gaming. I have the money to build the system but not with the second graphics card yet. I was wondering, what kind of gaming experience I can expect to get across 3 x 27" IPS LED panels using 2 2GB GTX 770 Superclocked cards with ACX coolers?

That is the card and I will be using 2 of them eventually. What kind of triple monitor gaming experience can i expect on that in terms of framerates and graphics quality and so on.

EDIT 1:

I forgot to mention that the monitors are:

And that they will be running at 1920 x 1080

Depending on quality settings, you can expect roughly 2/3-1/2 the frame rates in this review under the 2560x1440 monitors. 1920x1080 (x3 screens) = 6220800 pixels, 2560x1440 = 3686400 pixels, so a bit higher than 50% performance, subtracting ~10% for SLI performance scaling.

so basically i add one graphics card in SLI and 2 more monitors and i get around 50% of the performance i had originally?

thats pretty good actually because i arent a major quality snob so i can handle medium settings and play just fine.

I don't think you'll need to go down to medium, those benchmarks are ultra everything. I'd guess you will see some dynamite results just by turning AA down. Since a lot of titles behave differently with multi-GPU setups, there will be a fair amount of trial and error. Alternatively, that GeForce experience app that 'optimizes' your titles based on graphics setup will give you a great baseline to test from. Try to resist the urge to climb into your game haha, those IPS monitors are something else.
