Resolution 1080P ,24"inchs ,1 OR 2ms reponse time I know that I will be able to run it virtually but physically do I need 3 HDMI port or 3 Dual link dv i ?
How I am supose to connect 3 monitors on 1 graphic card ?

Here are the specs of the PC

CPU Cooler- Corsair H100 92.0 CFM Liquid
Motherboard- Asus Sabertooth X79 ATX LGA2011
Memory- Mushkin Essentials 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR3-1333

Video Card- Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 2GB
Power Supply- Corsair 750W ATX12V / EPS12V

Thank you very much :)

Your card will have 2xDVI, 1xHDMI, 1xdisplayport. Use any 3 connections. If your monitors only have DVI, use the 2x DVI and get an active displayport adapter (converts displayport to DVI) for the third.

Just be aware that hdmi 1.4 won't handle 1080p@60hz 3d, (It can do 720p@60hz 3d or 1080p@24hz 3d)

do you think the adapter will reduce the response time ?

Get yourself ddr3-1600, it is pretty much the standard today. And when you say 2 ms, it is from Gray to Gray, not from the Gpu to the display, so no it will not reduce the response time.

Like Feanor says, the monitor response time is the limiting factor. Not sure if you have monitors or are buying new ones, but quite a few new monitors have displayport inputs so you may not need an adapter. Also, yeah, if you are spending the cash on a 2011/3930 build, get some 1600+ ram and I'd definitely add an SSD for your boot drive. OCZ vertex4 128GB is only $120 and will be the most noticeable upgrade for day to day usage.
