Hello everyone.  It's been a while since I've posted.  I am a newb. to computers.  I had the itch and desire to learn about computers a few months ago.  And I figured the best way to learn was to build one.  So I did.  For my build I had no specific goal.  Just build something basic and useful for basic home use ( not realy gaming...yet).  As you can see below I went way overboard for my specific needs.  Oh well.  I had fun, learned a lot, have a killer beautiful ( asthetically ) system that I'm very proud of.
i7 4790k ( non OC )
Noctua NH-D14 heatsink - cpu cooler
Gigabyte gaming 3 MOBO
32gb crucial ballastix RAM
MSI GTX 970 GPU ( non OC )
HGST 4 tbb HDD ( for files, photos and videos )
Samsung 850 pro 512gb ( or 500gb.. I don't recall ) SSD for my OS and programs.
Corsair 970 PSU
Corsair 970T case
LG optical drive
Rosewill card reader
Rosewill 4 fan controller
Acer 144hz 3D 24" monitor
Win 7 64 bit ( I will be upgrading to Win. 10 @ sometime. I just love the simplicity of Win.7 for the moment )
* I think that's everything...?
I have always wanted multiple monitors.  Now I can.
Here's my question........--->
Is it possible to run 3  144hz monitors off my 970 GPU?
 970 GPU - HDMI, Display Port, DVI-D and DVI-I
If I recall a 144hz is best support with Display port and DVI-D.
I just ordered 2 more Acer 144hz 3D 24" monitors.
Will my GPU run a total of 3 monitors @ 144hz?
My Acer 144hz monitors only have DVI-D, HDMI and VGA connectins.
I will run 1  DVI-D to a monitor.  And I was told if I get a DVI-D --> Display port adapter.  I can then have 2 monitors with DVI-D.
What about the 3rd monitor?  All I am left with from my GPU is HDMI and DVI-I.  Can it get 144hz from either of these 2 connections?  Or is there any adapter?
Thank you very much for the long winded post.  I look forward and appreciate your responses.
*** Do I need 3  144hz monitors?  No.  Do I want them?  Yes.  Am I a gamer now? No.  Will I be a gamer in the future? I'd like to be.

I don't think HDMI supports 144hz unless you have version 2.0, and dvi definitely won't.
