yeah it should work fine as long as there are 3 dvi connectors (dvi to displayport adaptors are avaliable), but i can guarantee that performance might not be as high as you would like it to be on 3 high res panels

and also, id like to know what is the budget of your build, the country of in which you are buying in, and what parts you have already purchased. i can patch up your build

Ok thanks. Heres my build. Im starting with one 1440 monitor and one gpu. Go to 3 monitors and 2 gpus later. Im overclocking everything. I saw a single toxic 6gb 7970 get 16 fps with 3 1440 monitors. And my gpu matches it on benchmarks. Plus it will all be OCd. Hopin to get 30fps

first of all, have you gamed on 3 monitors and found out that you have increased your performance? if not, i wouldnt make that investment. i personally suck way too much on 3 panels and wouldnt ever make that suggestion

get this

the difference between OEM windows and full windows is that full windows costs around 200 dollars and you get 3 licenses rather than one
