I'm planning to add two more monitors and would like comments on - how will adding 2 addit monitors effect my frame rates. 

Win 10 64bit,  I7-4790, Asus Z97 mobo, 16G ram, GTX660 GPU, Samsung HD monitor.

I tried out a GTX1080I and not enough bang for the buck. Will upgrade GPU but would like to understand the multi-monitor effect on frames.

Not enough horsepower for 4k resolution, but probably would work for 1080p resolution.  Also, I've found that it's best to have all three monitors the same make and model or else you'll never get the colors to match precisely

When I went from one 1280 x 1024 monitor to three my FPS dropped by 20% and my GPU usage increased by 60%. My system is a long in the tooth 3770k at 4.5 ghz & 780GTX. Surprisingly my FPS recovered by 4% going from the triple monitor setup to 4k, but my GPU usage went up another 20% with the 4k monitor. This was with P3Dv3 and the results are averages as different aircraft and scenery produced different results. I have not run the exercise with P3Dv4.
