GFX Card for Triple 1440p WORKSTATION - Recommendations?

Hi guys.

I'm planning on building a home workstation.  I wish to do triple monitors, 1440p resolution at a high framerate (well above 60hz, ideally 144hz - seems to reduce eyestrain and the smoothness is just nice).

 

My computer's workload is going to be primarily electronics CAD and programming, maybe a bit of light mechanical CAD in future.  My programs are highly CPU intensive.  Barring GPU acceleration features, GPU requirements are low; lots of GUIs, 2d drawings, and occasional low-res 3d rendering.  

 

As far as gaming is concerned, I rarely play games.  So for gaming i'm totally fine to compromise as necessary by reducing framerate and / or # screens.

 

A secondary goal of my build is to reduce system noise.  Not having a card sound like a jet engine 24/7 would be nice :)

 

To me it looks like this problem boils down to: what card can realistically push this many pixels continuously for light graphics tasks, and bonus points if it's quiet?

 

I should also note that I'm still researching monitors, and i'm ok with getting a GSync or FreeSync specific monitor if i absolutely have to.  I will be running Windows and VM / Dual Boot Linux, if that affects the AMD vs NVidia selection from a drivers perspective.

 

So what graphics card would you guys recommend?

Any modern card will easily run 3x1440p at 144Hz.

Just pick the card suitable for your workloads.

 

Don't bother with GSync or FreeSync outside of gaming.

Any card with 3 DP ports can do that no problem, of which there are many.

 

CAD work might want a Quadro, those things can also play games but not as well as Geforce cards.

All cards that have tripple output can power you monitor.

But to game in all of them need the gpu horse power, i say a single gtx 1080ti can run all the monitors at 60fps.
