I play mostly racing and flight sims.
Have already 1 x Benq XL2420z and 2 x Benq XL2411z hooked up.
Anyhow, can get only 60Hz for one of the monitors and therefore when configured for surround view all 3 only on 60Hz.
The 295x is an option, and currently the fastest single graphics card solution that will most likely run decently on that resolution however a very expensive one. It does provide 8gb of Vram which is also a plus, but still it's overkill. I'd say you need 4gb at least but 6 to be safe.
So that narrows it down quite a bit. (5gb would of course be fine, but that's an odd number that's non occurring to my knowledge)
Nvidia offers the Titan, but that will be even more expensive since you're gonna want two.
or Tri-SLI 780's 6gb version, but that is also more expensive compared to a 295x and you will most likely have scaling issues with the 3rd card added.
AMD's r9 290x has 4gb, which may be narrow. But that would definitely be the cheapest if you crossfire 2 of them.
It highly depends on the games. i have no clue on what demands flight sim/ racing games have. But i've never used up over 1 gb of Vram on a single 1080p monitor. And i do play lots of the latest games.
My advice would be either go for two 290X and crossfire them.
Or wait it out a bit and see if the upcomming Titan Z will be usefull, but i suspect it will be insanely high priced, beyond any of the previous options.Edited by unseen0 - 5/16/14 at 7:37am
