The actual resolution you will set will be 5760x1080 as it's 3x 1920 but I strongly suggest you do some research on how to connect all 3 screens up before you buy.
I am no expert on multi display setups but I can tell you 2x 970s will run games just fine on 3x 1920x1080p monitors.

Off to bed now. Maybe someone can advise you better on physical connections.

Yep, each one at 1920x1080.

nVidia is notorious for being a pain for setting up multi monitors from what I can remember.

You'll have to look into multi monitor support at the nVidia website. It doesn't work like that I don't think, it's a right hassle getting a multi monitor setup with nVidia cards as I said earlier. You can't choose what ports to use, they do.

heres the benches with the reference cards:
GeForce GTX 970 SLI review - Introduction

Sorry but that is stupid advice. Have you ever tried gaming on 2 screens? You can't. Even if you can get the games to work with 2 screens, on FPS games the gun and main view point will be bang in the middle of where the 2 screens meet and you will be looking straight at the 2 screen borders. Same for racing games.

It's either 1 screen or 3 full stop.

And 2x 970s will be more than enough for 3 screens at 1920x1080 . 4GB of Vram will do the job a treat. The 970 is slightly more powerful than a 780 and 2 of them run 3 screens just fine.
oh, didn't know.

I know when i set up 2 Monitors Smart TV and my 27inch Viewsonic i had to plug in the HDMI while the card was running for it to recognize the second monitor this might be the key to when you install

Have the card running and the two other monitors plug them in One by One Via HDMI if you have 2 ports if not you will have to use DVI to VGA and Hdmi in combination to get the desired result

what about dvi and hdmi on one card for two monitors and on the second card dvi or hdmi for the final?? i guess ill probably have to play about with the cable connections to get it to work

23/24" displays will give you a little better picture quality @ 1080p than 27" monitors because of the pixel density. I only mention this if you are more interested in picture quality over screen size. Of course, there are 27" 2560x1440 displays that look absolutely amazing and that resolution is, in my opinion, quickly becoming the new HD standard.
