The only thing you can do, keep AA levels down on Crysis. Besides that, a standard 770 will run everything fine with the rest of that setup.

It does, but the TX650 will push even a GTX690 by itself easy.

The 770 can run Surround (3 monitors) if that's what you're aiming for, but on a lot of games you will need to turn down the settings.

Monitor recommendations will come from what kind of setup you're aiming for and size of monitors you want.

Generally, anything 1080p+, Asus, Dell, Samsung, or NEC.

im kind of indifferent on size. I currently have a 21' atm but dont mind going bigger or staying the same. I just dont know what im looking for. I know 1080 but I want something with a small bebble (border around the screen is small so not huge gap between the monitors
