what we need to know:
processor:
Ram:
Monitor resolutions:
what you consider an 'acceptable' fps (eg 30, 60, 120):

Only the highest end GPUs can do tripple head gaming with decent frame rates, but we need to know if there are going to be any other system bottlenecks.

I'd suggest HD7970, because it supports 3 monitors. Else it would be GTX570 SLI, but it would cost around $650..

So the Hd7970 would work with my computer in the pci-e x16 slot

Yes it would. Though, what is your power supply? I needs at least 500-600W quality unit.

No no no no no no no no...

Get a quality Corsair, Seasonic or Antec unit, like:

If you don't have budget for it, drop the card down to HD6970 for 3 monitor support and lower price.
