I was looking for some advice on a silent video card that would support three 30 inch monitors. I don't play many games. What should i be looking for? One with more memory? What are my best options here? What would you go with? thanks!

Need to know:
- screen resolution and video input connector in order to answer.
- Heck, what's the monitor make and model?
- Do you want to game on all three screens or just one? What games?

I have a couple Dell 2407WFP monitors right now and plan to swap these out to something similar to a Dell 3007WFP with 2560 x 1600 or a Monoprice 30" IPS LED Backlit LCD Panel WQXGA (http://www.monoprice.com/Product/?c_id=113&cp_id=11307&cs_id=1130703&p_id=10734&seq=1&format=2) So to start would really like to do two 30 inch monitors and one 24 inch monitor with the ability to have 3x30inch setup. i'm not a big gamer so that isn't a big requirement.

For 1600p, you probably want to stick with Displayport. The fun part is trying to find video cards with multiple displayport connectors that aren't also big honking gaming cards. I did come across this R7 250 variant by Powercolor. Upside is it's only $140 and it has 4 mini-displayport connectors. Downsides are the cooler is an unknown entity and AMD's GDDR5 memory controller won't idle with more than one monitor plugged in....so it may idle/run 2D apps at 20-30W more power than an Nvidia card. The fan profile might be hackable using MSI afterburner or you could replace it with an aftermarket variety if it turns out it's louder than you like.
