iRacing Triple Screen Setup

Been nearly 10 years since I put together my own PC but now I'm putting together a 3 screen setup for iRacing. While the game itself is not terribly demanding, running 5760x1080 will require some graphics horsepower. This build is based on a current combo buy @ Newegg (mb, cpu, case, ps, RAM and HDD) plus the ASUS GTX760 ROG card. A number of folks @ the iRacing forums have mentioned the 760 as a good choice as it can run 3 monitors out of 1 card, run high detail and still produce good frame rates and for that in particular the extra VRAM is useful.

I have keyboard, mouse, OS and will shop monitors separately but wouldn't mind advice regarding monitors well suited to triple setups in the 23-27" range.

Thanks!

For your monitors first fugure out what you really want to be sitting next to.

23" triple setup like this http://i.imgur.com/jSa8A.jpg

or

27" triple setup like this(this is actually 46" but you get my point) http://i.ytimg.com/vi/o-trn94r5WE/maxresdefault.jpg

For the triple monitors you need 4-6 GB of memory on your gpu so thats the first thing you need.

Since you will be running i Racing that 770 will be great for you as long as you use 1080P or then you will need more graphics cards.

The pictures are quite help and I do get your point, thanks! I will want to sit quite close to help with cockpit effect so 27 is about as big as I could realistically want I think. Thanks for the confirmation on the 4GB video card as well.
