I would sell two of the three monitors and use the money to purchase one of these bad boys. However, is it guaranteed that they will run 120Hz? Or at least 96Hz? My current monitors are 120Hz and I'm an absolute sucker for refresh rates, I can easily see 60Hz and I can not stand it anymore..... What to do
I was at a similar boat, I had 3x IPS monitors in Portrait Eyefinity and I ended up keeping one as a secondary portrait monitor in conjunction with my Qnix. Although my screen estate and resolution shrunk, I am much happier with the larger screen, especially when it's at 120Hz.
There is no guarantee for any overclock, but 90% who try will get 96Hz and anything past that is pretty much lottery. Despite that, many people have been able to get 110~120Hz easily.
The biggest change for you will probably be the better colors, but you may not care for them. I'm not sure if the higher response times (6~8ms vs your 1ms) would change things, but from what I've read, it isn't noticeable.
Btw, really cool build, interested to see how that setup fairs when it's completed.
