Will this work for a 3 Monitor Set Up

http://imageshack.us/a/img715/2672/computerw.png

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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?

    Two of those vapor x 7970 would murder BF3
  4. What exactly do you mean by that?
  5. I mean it will do very well.
  6. 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.
  7. Ty so much, I think that is what I will go with
  8. Your welcome!
  9. 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.
  10. don't do it o,o low res monitor ^ get minimum 1920x1080
  11. Wow, didnt even notice that, haha I need to pay more attention when im doing this >.>
  12. Fixed - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1889638&CatId=12
    and if you have anything with a even thiner bezel for a good price please tell me.
  13. Yea... All of those are out of my price range, I know I should be going High End for this, but I cant afford it =/
  14. That one looks nice xD

    when i got my monitor i wasn't thinking about bezel but i wish i did but yea love my monitors

  15. Wow, thats a very nice setup. And yea I definatly want to keep the space between the screens to as little as possible.
  16. Asus VE228H would be my choice out those two.
