Also, as far as I know, 3D Vision drivers are still in beta for Tri-SLI and Quad-SLI setups, so you might be relegated to playing your triple monitor setup in 2D until NVIDIA releases better 3D Vision drivers for Tri and Quad SLI.
A standard 15 amp line in the US can handle 1440 watts @ load and I have a separate circuit and can add another if needed. This rig on is on 15 amp circuit by itself withnothing else will be fine.
