3x displays at 1440.........what do you need to run this?

I have a bug up my rear. I want to game out in 1440 x 3 screen with 60fps+ on most games. This may be a silly question but if a single video card can output 144fps on 1440, and I put a 2nd monitor next to it would the FPS be cut in half? Would a single 1080ti be able to run 3x 1440p? SLI?

Yes, but you would get lower than 40 fps on some games.

You actually need 2x GTX 1080Ti's for getting 60 fps and some games must be tweaked for that as well.

Also keep in mind, not every game scales nicely on a SLI configuration.

So, you must make a research...what games are scaling well on a SLI setup.

I'd also look into the possibility of using 3 separate cards (presumably ~1080 or so) and giving each monitor a card. This should avoid those pesky SLI issues, although it isn't clear how this is suited for each game.

There's also motherboard compatibility. Few motherboards supply even x8 to three cards, so you would likely find one (or more likely two) cards being fed at x4 (which might not hurt as much as you'd think).

This seems to be going out of favor, and limited googling didn't tell me anything about this, so it might not be the possibility I thought it was. But don't expect simple solutions (other than using a 1080ti and accepting 40fps).

I'm confused by your first statement. If you did this, you wouldn't be able to game that way, as far as I know, unless I am missing something? Sure, you could use one card per monitor, but you would be stuck gaming on one.

You should be aware, not all games support 3 monitors
