You have to choose a resolution of monitors that you want. 1920x1080 (1080p) monitors are usually the most popular so maybe get some of those.

If you do though, I don't think a 6870 will be able to handle a lot of gaming on high settings. You will probably have to turn the settings down to low. You also need to make sure your monitors supports Display Port or get an active displayport adapter.
