    Triple monitor gaming with slightly different monitors ??

    he is looking to play project cars 2 and maybe battlefield 1. I was thinking about will he need more power cos I don't know how it works. so if he uses all 3 is it like running in a higher resolution so he will need to turn graphics settings down to keep fps up ? or does it not work like that ?
