Question Preplanning Build

I'll be building a new rig in the next 3 months or so. Gaming (FPS) and HTPC will be the primary uses.

I plan to run 2, 27" monitors at 1440 (maybe 4k but not likely given the size) and a 65" 4K TV.

I may mine also.

No budget.

If I want to run all 3 displays at once, in all their glory, what card specs should I be looking at?

Hopefully by then cards will be available.

TIA

3080 Ti or 6800XT would likely work as well as the others, if available by then. That said, if you are going to game on 3 1440 screens at once, you would probably want the best you can get. I am not sure a 3090 would be enough, depending on the games and desired FPS.

Sure, but if you're going to pay a ridiculous markup no matter what, may as well get a top-end card. I also think that the higher prices on those gives them better availability. I was looking at a site that sells pre-built computers just to see if it was worth going that route and outside of some low-end cards, the only thing in stock were the top-end parts from both AMD and Nvidia. They're still marked up, but at least it's possible to get one without waiting.
