No kidding! It's one of the perks from having an overkill system. Pity my notebooks can't handle that (of course, they cost less than 1/10th of what I paid for my desktop).

Pretty much all halfway decent cards can handle three streams (support three independent monitors) for most purposes other than hard core gaming. The recent cards can handle up to four streams and the high end ones can also handle serious gaming. Many of the really good cards have three Display Port or miniDisplay Port outputs in addition to an HDMI and a DVI. Of course, 4k will require more graphics power, most likely meaning multiple cards.

My comparatively ancient card (MSI R7850 Twin Frozr II) has one DVI, one HDMI, and two miniDisplayPorts. I'm using the HDMI, one miniDP with a passive HDMI adapter and the MiniDP with an active HDMI adapter. I needed my primary monitor to be HDMI so I could use a powered splitter to split the stream between the monitor and my TV. I used HDMI for the other two monitors to ensure the picture I got on all three monitors were of the same quality. Even though HDMI is limited to 60HZ, that has easily been enough for my purposes, including watching high definition TV. Obviously, gamers would need a more powerful setup but, depending one the size, resolution, and number of monitors, it could be accomplished with a single, high end card (the kind that require the sale of kidney's for the down payment).

I have a 3d Vision Surround system. I used to have GTX480 SLI. With the new card, my 2 displays are connected with DVI. The 3rd one is disconnected at the moment, I need the active DP-dual link DVI for that reason. Or else I can connect the 3rd one with HDMI or DP to whatever for normal Surround, which is connected to TV currently.

I started to suggest that but I was afraid it would be perceived as too facetious.

Narrrr it's all good Lady
The more I read about it the more it goes back,

The best post I've seen is
You don't buy cards for the games of tomorrow,
You buy cards for the games of today and upgrade later

980TI hybrid maybe but dagnabit the asus 20th anniversary gold 980 is at 630.00
If still around come 4th of July it's likely.

Honestly, I would get two GTX 980Ti 's. They run at 98%~ of the performance of a Titan, yet they are half the price.

If you don't need the extra 2Gb VRAM, get the Ti version.
