Might look at these (http://www.ergotechgroup.com/products/heavy-duty-17-30-36/triple-lcd-desk-stand-from-ergotech-62/).

only holds up to 24" though.

Here's what this guy used. It holds 30 lbs max, 10 lbs per monitor. Be sure to get the desk clamp if you do not want to wall mount it.

Just get three wall mounts with arms, should work fine.

that was my original plan but my walls are weird the studs are really far apart and those drywall jackets for screws wont hold my monitor i tried already.

You can get bars with clamps to attach them to your desk. Something like this. That one may even work since it will support the weight.

ETA: Three of these should work for sure if your monitors have standard VESA mounts on them.

wonder how much though, probably pretty expensive.

Home Despot sells some drywall anchors that are rated to 100#. I've used them and they seem to work as advertised.

As an alternative, consider screwing a 1x2 horizontal cleat to your studs, and anchor off of that.

whats is the purpose of three monitors?

1.more space
2.wanting to run eyefinity
3.gaming

even with 2 monitors i need more space. i always find myself opening a browser and full screening it to my second monitor while using another browser on my primary monitor.i use tabs on both browsers. then that leaves no space for I.M's or anything else so a third monitor i could put my I.M's on that or whatever im doing at the time. then theres the gaming part of it. sometimes i like to play some MS flight simulator and i'd like to get the whole view on the cockpit. kinda like a poor mans flight simulator setup.then first person shooters and all that good stuff.

yeah i considered the cleat idea. was gonna take a piece of wood and anchor it to the studs but id have to have a long piece of wood because the distance between the studs is pretty far apart and then the wood would be sticking out passed the monitor and i wouldnt want that.

That's why I suggested getting the arms that you can bolt/clamp to the desk.

So I think I decided on something. Don't want anything fancy and this should do the trick its a 72" kidney shaped school activity desk.My current desk is 60" and holds 2 27" so this should do the job.http://www.schoolfurniture2go.com/product/IBA152/72-in-x-48-in-Blow-Molded-Kidney-Shaped-Activity-Table-by-Correll.aspx
