Alright, good to hear and good luck. Check out the thread in my signature to see what games users have found that have 3 monitor support. You will also realize not a lot of games have them, or some that due have piss poor support (like menu screens not readable or HUD stretched).

Yeah it's good that you're starting with 1. If you're fine with your performance and results with your single card, then you won't even need to buy a second card.

I run surround at 1080P on a single 680 without any overclocking (on the GPU) and it's more than sufficient for modern games. Even BF 3 can be played a pretty good settings and max resolutions. I only own 3 games that I can't play max settings on surround and skyrim could be at max settings vanilla (no .ini tweaks or mods).
