I wanted to build a new computer (My first computer) that can do 3 screens as an eyefinity that will work for games like Battle Field 3.

These are all from Newegg, and all other parts like Hard drive and Power brick I can strip off my old computer.

My main focus is if the cpu, motherboard, and 1 graphics card, all work well enough to do 3 screens. You can also tell there is 16gigs of ram.

I am trying to keep this low cost, so please just tell me the basics I would need to run a game like Battle Field 3 at a pretty High Quality. I know its asking a lot, so thank you.

you only need 8gigs of ram and for 3 monitors to play battlefield 3 on ultra a 7970 ghz edition card would be better but with one card your fps won't be super high like 30-45fps.

Ok well if that is the case then I would rather keep my current board and processor in order to save money, I also already have 8gigs ram that work with this board so that is good. The reason I wanted to change was because the lga 1156's were discontinued. But would this set up work?

Sweet, but if theres a way for me to do it at its best for cheaper I would much rather do that. Any suggestions on 2x graphics cards that I should use to save money? Also Thank you all very much.

Well I decided to keep my old motherboard, it works fine just wanted to change cus the 1156 was discontinued. I can always build a new comp later and carry over the graphics card. And reason I choose those monitors is because its the Thinist bezel monitors I could find, I want a thin bezel between monitors for when using eyefinity.
