yes thats normal, for 3xs 1080P and up a 680 is pushing it for BF3.

Yeah if your gaming on all 3 monitors that is a massive amount of pixels. You will need to SLI for sure to get good FPS, or just game on 1 or 2 monitors.

Turn off AA. Or, lower some of the eye candy. Personally, I can't tell the difference between High and Ultra.

I've seen people on a single GTX 680 playing BF3 with 6040 x 1080 ULTRA settings no AA with Nvidia surround. I didn't see any stutters. But, AA was off.
But, their CPU was a 3960x @ 4.5ghz. So, that might have a made a difference.

You're loading your graphics card down with 3 times as much it has to processor compared to one monitor. In order to get better frames on 3 monitor gaming sli or crossfire is a must.
