HELP NEEDED ASAP can my pc run 3 x 27" Acer K272HLBID led monitors??

hi all, im new not sure where to post this, im wondering if my pc would handle 3 x 27" Acer K272HLBID monitors Buy Acer K272HLBID 27 Inch HDMI LED Monitor at Argos.co.uk - Your Online Shop for PC monitors. (or bigger monitors)?? im using the resolution 1920 x 1080 on my single 40" led tv (its 1080p)

my pc has the following specs

Asus Maximus VII Ranger, SLI, CrossFireX, 6 SATA 6Gbps, 1 PCI-E M.2, SATA RAID, ATX motherboard

Intel Core i7 4790K, Haswell Refresh, Quad Core with Hyperthreading, 4GHz, 4.4GHz Turbo, 8MB Cache (overvclocked up to 4.6GHz)

16GB (2x8GB) Corsair Vengeance Pro, 2133MHz memory

2x 4GB EVGA GTX 970 SC ACX 2.0, 1165MHz GPU, 1664 Cores, 7010MHz GDDR5 in SLI

750W Corsair PSU

my 40" led tv went faulty and store will give me a credit note so thats whi i am asking about the monitors


the main games that i would play on 3 monitors are euro truck simulator 2, FSX (possibly x-plane 10), grid autosport, nascar 14, train simulator 2014/2015, titanfall and a few others

so can my pc handle it?? or what would be recommended??

depends what game. you have 2 GTX 970's so it will play them, how well, idk. TBH, i would just shoot for 2 1080p monitors instead of 3.

heres the benches with the reference cards:

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.

thanks for advice, would 3 x 24" monitors make a difference (i.e better performance) than 3 x 27" monitors??

i dont want to get them and find out that the pc cant run the games on them lol coz i wont be able to take them back

No worries.

No, the screen size will make absolutely no difference to performance provided they are 1920x1080.

so does that mean set each monitor to 1920 x 1080 (if thats even possible, i have obviously never done more than one screen before)??
