I've recently purchased the XFX Triple Stand: - Buy XFX Fxtristand Triple LCD Display Monitor Stand - Supports 3 LCD Monitors From 17IN to 24IN Each - XFX - FXTRISTAND - in Canada

and Three Dell U2410 monitors: DELL Dell - UltraSharp U2410 24-inch Widescreen Flat Panel Monitor : Computer Accessories and PC Components | Dell Canada

I need some advice on the GPU(s). The standard I want to meet, is to have the right components to enjoy triple monitor gaming with good fps and great picture quality.

The trouble is, I don't know what is required for this kind of set up. I believe I can run each monitor on 1900x1200.

Your thoughts, please!

Thank you

PS Any guidelines for the CPU/Mobo/Other Components is appreciated

The whole job will be on GPUs if you have all filtres on (which you should) so there won't be any big differences between Sandy Bridge and Phenom II. So I'm choosing AMD, due to lower platform cost!

AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDT90ZFBGRBOX

With dual graphics, it's a good idea to overclock your CPU, to avoid bottlenecks. For that reason you need a good and reliable Heatsink.

An 150$ Motherboard with everything you' ll need. Especially the dual 16x / 16x will help you to "drain" all the power from your GPUs!

Dual 6950 seems the best case scenario, perfomance / $ wise!

8GB of high speed RAM, making your system "Plug n Play" for Bulldozers (they'll need high speed RAM)

That's the core of your system! The two most important parts are Case and PSU, because you need everything run stable and cool!

High AirFlow is what you'll need, and HAF 932 is all about that! Plus it has USB 3.0 infront!

And a powerful PSU, from XFX!
