You're going to call me dumb when I tell you this but, I don't run in surround. I think the idea is cool, but the interface is shotty at best. I'll explain. So normally I game on the middle monitor with a stream up on my right monitor and something to read on the left. The surround doesn't have "true" maximize so the windows are basically maximized but still show the border, that annoys me.
As far as the monitors, I love them, albeit I'd like to replace them for the BenQ 24" 120hz.
For me, the case is a sign of power. When I was much younger, my first job was at a computer shop and one of the guys there had a really big case with all kinds of badassery inside and ever since I started making money and building awesome gaming rigs, I've always got a big case.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001NPEC5A/ref=oh_details_o08_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&amp;psc=1 is my monitor stand.
It's an Ergotech 100-D16-B03. There is essentially no wobble.
Is this the stand you have: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001NPEC5A/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_2?pf_rd_p=486539851&amp;pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&amp;pf_rd_t=201&amp;pf_rd_i=B0023ED22Y&amp;pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&amp;pf_rd_r=0V3A26BY4JMQF3ZPWGET
The stand is an Ergotech (Model 100-D16-B03) and I bought it on Amazon
Does not allow you to rotate displays into portrait but I have no need for that and also it's a very heavy stand (25 pounds) which personally I like for stability without the need to screw it to a desk.
Ergotech has adjustable size and can support 25 lbs per mount, costs $230.
Look into building one yourself. Black steel piping at home depot isn't terribly expensive, and assuming that you don't care to move it while it's mounted a bit of planning will let you mount VESA monitors pretty much anywhere.
It's made by Ergotech
Not sure if Amazon has the best price or not, but that is the stand.
It's an Ergotech Triple Horizontal LCD Monitor Arm Desk Stand
You must get this. You really can't appreciate a 3 monitor setup until they're all mounted together on one stand. Having them lifted up instead of hugging the table makes a huge difference. Idk why, it just does.
This one. It's pretty easy to work with. If you want to get it exact you'd need a level and a ruler and take some time. I didn't have the time nor did i care enough to get it absolutly perfect
I got THIS I saw the $87 tag on it and thought it was too good to be true. If it's holding three $200+monitors I want something sturdy and reliable. How do you like the stand you got? :) Just curious. I might recommend the one you got to save my friends some money.
I do..a lot. I like doing a lot of editing so having three screens is very much helpful. Sometimes I start thinking that 3 monitors (for me personally) isn't enough lol.
The stand I'm using is the Ergotech Triple Monitor Stand w/ Telescoping Wings
Theres also one with non-telescoping arms
I use this: Ergotech stand with 3xx U2412m's and it works awesome.
Go for it, you will love it!
They are both IPS displays and coincidentally they both use the same 23" LG IPS panel. So... beyond a few case differences (The Eizo lacks tilt, swivel and height adjustment) and some calibration they will both wind up looking exactly the same. Whatever monitor you prefer and who offers the better price will be the ultimate factor. You should be able to score the 23"" Dells for around $230/ea
I debezeled my panels (http://www.wsgf.org/forum/forums/hardware-software-support/hardware-discussions/18530/bezel-less-diy-also-valuable-users) so that they would look a lot nicer than stock. I even recently put them on a Triple monitor stand from Ergotech (http://www.amazon.com/Ergotech-Triple-Horizontal-Monitor-100-D16-B03/dp/B001NPEC5A/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1341967480&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=ergotech+triple+monitor+stand) and it looks a lot more clean now.
Feel free to check out my videos too. I even have some Guild Wars 2 footage (http://www.youtube.com/my_videos?feature=nanahara72)
Once you have Eyefinity, you will never go back. Some of the older games require 5-20minutes worth of work but the experience is worth it.
So... I would recommend a laptop that you can dock and can do some virtualization.
You can upgrade the memory to 16Gb and then get a port relicator for multimonitor setup.
I recommend this one because it has 2 DVI ports, vga, hdmi, dsub, 5 usb (2 back, 3 side), and basically everything you need in a port replicator.
Those particular laptops come with a 256GB SSD (Samsung, Seagate, or some other vendor, just depends but I've found most use Samsung and Seagate).
You can get 16GB kit would should be plenty for most virtualization and the 2.7GHz has hyper threading as well.
Wireless is I think the Intel 7620-AC Dual band but there is an additonal slot for a secondary card. (I think there is actually 3 slots total but only enough wires for 2 cards).
Network is 10/100/1000
You're going to be hard to find a better laptop with all that for cheaper. Brand new these things run around 1200 - 1500 depending.
Now the only thing that really bugs me when buying those is it's going to be a grab bag on whether you get a 9w (extended battery) or not.
If you don't get a 9w battery then I'd recommend picking one up.
The monitors and everything else is up to you but that would be my recommendation for what you're looking for.
Edit: Forgot these are also super easy to take apart. 7 screws on the back and the panel comes off super easy.
Edit 2: Also, because those sell out, make sure if you go on overstock that the processor is the 2.7ghz i7 if you want to do virtualization.
Also here is the specs on the processor that come with it.
Edit 3: Sorry keep forgetting things. Those laptops come with some shitty chinese replacement chargers. They can cause issues with the touch pad while charging. However the port replicator (docking station) should come with a legit Dell charger that will work for the laptop as well since it's universal.
Edit 4: Decided to add my personal recommendations for monitors, monitor stand, mouse, and keyboard. You do your own research though.
Monitor x3: Dell E2414H - 1980, Vesa mount, DVI and VGA
Monitor Stand: 3 Arms I'd go with http://www.amazon.com/Ergotech-Triple-Horizontal-Monitor-100-D16-B03/dp/B001NPEC5A/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1450473096&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=ergotech+3+monitor
There are a lot of options with monitor stands but I like Ergotech so YMMV
Mouse: Tons of options but for I really enjoy my G602 http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Wireless-Gaming-Mouse-Battery/dp/B00E4MQODC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1450473201&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=logitech+g602
Keyboard: I love blue switches and having a numpad on a TKL is amazing. CoolerMaster has some pretty amazing mechanical keyboards. I recommend this one. http://www.amazon.com/CM-Storm-QuickFire-TK-Mechanical/dp/B00A378L4C/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1450473227&amp;sr=8-3&amp;keywords=cm+rapid+fire+tk
Otherwise I currently use a the Quick Fire Rapid with blue http://www.amazon.com/Coolermaster-SGK-4000-GKCL1-US-Storm-QuickFire-Rapid/dp/B0068INSUM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1450473343&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=cm+quick+fire+rapid+blue
I recommend browsing on https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/ or /r/mechanicalkeyboards
I use 3 ASUS VN247H-P displays with an Ergo tech triple monitor stand shown here. I love my setup.
Mount stand :) http://www.amazon.com/Ergotech-Triple-Horizontal-Monitor-100-D16-B03/dp/B001NPEC5A/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1370570573&amp;sr=8-2&amp;keywords=triple+monitor+stand
IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING.
They are a bit more expensive, but ErgoTech makes some amazingly solid mounts. great cable management, adjustable in just about every way, and can be free standing. This one seems to fit your bill for about $180 on Amazon:
I've been using this one:
[Ergotech Triple Horizontal LCD Monitor Arm Desk Stand (100-D16-B03)]
Very solid, frees up a heap of desk space. Have not had any complaints. Check out the Amazon reviews for more info.
I've been using this for about 2-3 years now: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001NPEC5A/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&amp;psc=1
is the company website: http://www.ergotechgroup.com/ they are very friendly people, emailed the company to ask some questions and they even sent me a link to the cheapest resaler.

I have one of these and would recommend it, if there is a way to remove the monitor mounting from the desk. Obviously there is a massive footprint on the desk, however there are other options available as I am sure you are aware. But that would be my two cents, again best of luck. :)
Desk: IKEA Linnmon/Oddvald. Pretty solid desk for the price, although leg room is a bit lacking, probably upgrading soon.
Chair: DXRacer Formula Series, really helped my posture and got rid of my back pain. Plus I'm a huge gear-head so it's very much my style.
Keyboard: Das Keyboard Professional w/ Brown Switches. This keyboard is fantastic, it's a treat to use every day, feels buttery smooth to type on and build quality is superb. I also have a CM Quickfire Ultimate that I use at work, also browns.
Mouse: Zowie EC2-A. Replaced my old Logitech G400 when it started intermittently cutting out, I think I like this mouse even more.
Mousepad: SteelSeries QcK+ for all that low DPI goodness.
Headset: Kingston HyperX Cloud II. I love this headset, it's super comfortable and has good directional sound.
Speakers: Cyber Acoustics CA-3602 FFP. I use my headset mainly but these are good enough for when I need them.
Monitors: BenQ XL2411Z flanked by two ASUS VS247H-P mounted on an Ergotech Triple Monitor Stand. Finally got the monitor stand this year after using two boxes to hold up my side monitors for far too long. However, the BenQ is probably my favorite purchase out of all of these, would've bought three if it served any real benefit to me.
Random Peripherals: uxcell extended power switch. I keep my computer under my desk so this is handy so I don't have to crouch under my desk to turn on my computer.
Inateck PCI-E to USB 3.0 5-Port PCI Express Card. My motherboard came with a fairly low number of USB ports so this allows me to plug in my printer and external hard drive, etc.
All monitors have to run at the same resolution, so you would have to run the center monitor at 1080p when playing in surround. If it's a different size than the other two, it will be difficult to arrange them so the edges line up smoothly. You'd have to have the side monitors significantly closer/further away than the center to make things transition smoothly from the center to the sides. It may not bother you, but even having my side monitors slightly off broke the whole "window" effect for me. I bought this stand, and it's been decent enough. The base is a bit cheap, you have to get a bit rough with the arms to get them perfectly symmetrical, but it works great once it's set up. If I had it to do over again, I might have gone with something like this, then used a separate arm for the top monitor.
It's a great stand.. http://www.amazon.com/Ergotech-Triple-Horizontal-Monitor-100-D16-B03/dp/B001NPEC5A
You'll get another 40-50% from the third card. The 2Gb will be a minor setback, but as I can see you aren't too fond of the idea of moving up to 7970s. $500 isn't enough to move up in monitor quality (Three catleaps would set you back $990) and two 670s wouldn't handle 7680x1440 anyway so sticking with the 5760x1080 setup you have is all you can do at the moment. You could alternatively spend that $360 on a nice monitor mount instead of a third card. Something like this would do the trick.
Not sure you'll get that, but good luck.
That stand is way overpriced, the ergotron is only 200 on amazon. Or just get 3 seperate stands from monoprice.
I figure 500 is more realistic.
I really appreciate it, I'm going to go with something close to your build. So I talked with him today, and he said "Can we find a thinner monitor? I’d be willing to sacrifice some size for that, or increase price.?" I'm going to set him up with a three monitor stand like this one, (have to do some research on it first.)
I don't think he appreciates the IPS, although I know he'd prefer it. The one he uses now is 1600x900 Acer 20-Inch LCD,, which I probably wouldn't use in the new build. (Others in the office would love another monitor.)
How about this?
So this thing is pretty freaking good. It does have important drawbacks tho. 1) it is VERY stable (they offer it for a 24in monitor and 27 in monitor version) 2) THe base is quite large, so if you dont have the desk realestate, consider other options. 3) I have 3 24in monitors that hang off to the very edge so one way or another, I reccomend getting the 27 in version (if you have the space). Here it is: https://www.amazon.com/Ergotech-Triple-Horizontal-Monitor-100-D16-B03/dp/B001NPEC5A
You could also mount multiple monitors on a single stand, like this, or get a mount that uses a clamp, like this. Those are just the first examples I found, there's a ton of other options on amazon, or newegg, or wherever.
Performs great, had to make my own base though because the stock one was too big. Yes stable
You have a link? I'd like to replace mine and I can't find "Ergolynx" ?
e: Ergotech maybe?
Ergotech has some nice offerings.

VESA mounts are just referring to the type of standardized mount on the back of monitors. How a manufacturer decides to use that mount leads to products like clamping monitor arms or multiple monitor stands or simply just stand replacements.
I can't seem to find any mounts with a weighted stand to use for a monitor arm.
Here's an example of how a clamp might work on a desk. There shouldn't be any damage to the desk.
It says 24 here on Amazon -

If you're considering spending $200 on a monitor stand, I will recommend this: http://www.amazon.com/Ergotech-Triple-Horizontal-Monitor-100-D16-B03/dp/B001NPEC5A/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1404837802&amp;sr=8-4&amp;keywords=triple+monitor+stand
The company I work for purchased 4 of these for our new computers and they are sturdy. Linustechtips just did a review for the "wing arm" varient. He does also mention a DIY or community made solution but I have not looked into this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-raKOW9LUc
This one seems pretty reliable. I don't know however, as I've only stuck with one monitor, but from the reviews it seems pretty good.
i am in the market for the same thing. based on this review i am looking at the Ergotech Triple and its $180
I wanted to go with one of those, but I currently have a glass desk and didn't think those would mix well. If you ever look for a tri stand, there are basically two that can handle 3 24"s: a reasonably priced one, and a really expensive one. I got the former and have been very happy with it.
Was looking at this arm
Reviews of it have been great and it looks like it suits be pretty well. However, wondering if there's anything just as good, but cheaper. I'm new to mounts, so I'm not sure if $200 is steep or not. There seem to be a lot more expensive ones, but also some cheaper ones.

Ergotech makes some great stands I think would work for you. They aren't clamp style so they take up a bit more space, but you only have 1 base on your desk instead of multiple.
They have a regular 2 monitor stand here:
They also have a triple monitor stand that I would probably recommend above it. You can still only mount 2 monitors if you want. Just move the mounts further towards the joint on the wings to accommodate your monitor size. The real reason I recommend it though is the base is completely flat, so even though it takes up some desk space, that space is still relatively usable because it is just a flat piece of sheet metal.
