Wow great post. Will adding a 2nd card increase performance on 5760x1080 (3 monitor) display, or do I need more VRAM for that?

What a the cards?

Generally I go for 4GB of RAM for 3 screens though it can be done on 2.

It's a 7970 3GB, my concern is I only have 3gb even with another card. so is it worth it?

It would also be good to note, that for someone building a PC for the first time, AMD's latest chipset (as of today) is the 990FX

Very informative and I agree; although Intel is a little more expensive than AMD, in some respects, it's really worth paying the extra buck!
