ATI cards tend to do better with the higher resolutions and quallity settings. so something like a 7970 ghz edition.

that being said if you want to run all games at 5760x1080 with MAX settings you may be needing 2 cards in SLI or Crossfire. Especially if your wanting to play the latest and greatest games at these settings.

SLI 2 GTX 670 if you can afford that, If not GTX 660 SLI might work, but Im not too familiar with 3 monitor setups

^I'd avoid the 660s, due to memory bandwidth.

The 4GB 670s or 3GB 7970 GHz editions are the way to go. Personally I'd go with the 7970s if you have the money, but either setup will do what you're looking for.

See if you can afford a 690, though more expensive, you will not run intro any problems regarding heat.

If you do get some 670's, make sure they are 4GB units because 2GB can be too little with triple monitor setups.

Actually, I'd get triple 7950's.
