    honestly playing a fps game on 3 monitors is probably a bad idea given it stretches the cursor quite a bit causing heatshots to be extremely difficult but i gave you a 7970 just incase you want to do it. if you find out that one 7970 is not enough, add another one
  2. Are the monitors going to be in a separate budget or included? Because I could post completely different builds if they are.

    can your home PC hookup three monitors because thats really all i want, and i would like the monitors to be in it but doesnt matter

    Yes - I have a Sapphire GHZ edition which will support 3 displays no problem. But will they be included in a separate budget or not?

    i would like them to be included but im willing to go over $2000 just a little bit tho

    The extra $500 in the budget gives you a lot to play with when adding monitors and peripherals - I usually don't suggest those as that's entirely a personal preference thing.
  8. Add $40 to the above because of MIRs.
