Do you want all 3 monitors to be 27" 1440p? I ask because I dont think that even crossfire HD7970 would be able to run modern games on decent settings with that kind of a resolution. Keep in mind that 3 27" will take up a lot of space on your desk so make sure you have the space for it, also 1440p monitors aren't exactly cheap either.

It would also help if you could give us an idea of what your budget is since your statement of "dont cost way 2 much" can be quite relative.

I agree with iCon. Very good questions iCon you raised.

Also, MSI-PC-Gamer, please don't shorten words. If you want a proper, nice and helpful answer from people, respect your readers. We usually type a lot more than you in answering your questions. Its the least you can do. Thanks :)

+1 for this!

Few questions should be answered:

1) What's your budget?

2) What type of panel?

3) What resolution for all three?

4) What type of system do you plan running for all three of these monitors?

There's more, but start with that.

You're obviously going for surround gaming? Do you 3D game much?

For me I would pick something like this:

images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSGyCdpVz0KlMKZyI5TbuJLkr0QPGgUVY5OUwi4uX01z4B1f4aQHw

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236309

Something with a small bezel, Nice panel, good build.

Something you are looking for? or want better?

If you can find this:

http://www.asus.com/Commercial_Monitors_Projectors/PB278Q/

I can't find it on Newegg.com, but suggested retail is $699. It's over your $650 budget, but not sure if you are going to find one with higher resolution for that price range.

Hey MSI_PC_GAMER, I can not send you private messages anymore? I just tried to send you one and it was denied it said that the user had either blocked me from sending messaged OR that another party has prevented me to.
