I highly suggest you pick up thin bezel monitors if you can fit it in your budget. Your GPU will be sufficient for triple monitor gaming, but some games won't let you play max settings and give you good fps.

If I had a choice between tripple monitor and a single dell ultra sharp 30" I'd choose the latter

Cool setup! the card is probably sufficient to run the games on 3 monitors but most likely not at ultra settings on most games. Maybe if you have a little room you could upgrade to a 780 or something. Have fun with it anyways :D

How much experience have you had with triple monitor? I haven't had any experience with a 30" high end monitor, otherwise I'd comment on one vs the other, but as it stands I am loath to move to a single monitor again.

Get a bigger video card, the biggest you can squeeze out of your budget. I love triples, will never go back to anything else. I have a 4GB GTX 670 and it is able to do well, but it does have limitations, I need to SLI in my opinion.

Get a 780/780ti. Money well spent. Skip the SSD and get a better video card.

I had a stock GTX 680 for a long time on triple monitors and I did not have any real complaints. Sure, I couldn't max out the settings in BF3 or Metro 2033, but both games I could still make look sexy and give me playable frames. The 770 has higher memory bandwith to boot, so it should even perform better than my 680. Only reason to go more than a 770 if you want to run 120hz on all monitors or turn your settings up to the absolute max.
