12k [4k Monitor x3] Gaming?

So I recently saw a youtube video, where someone had 3 4k Monitors, and I was wondering if that was really possible?

Would 3 GTX 980's Be Enough To do This [And Still Max Most Settings?]

Would The 980's 4GB Video Ram Be Enough For 12k? [Or Does It Add Up, Unlike Crossfire?]

Would Something Like This Work? :

I know that the computer in the video was running 4-Way Titans, and 5960x Over Clocked, and 64GB Ram Clocked To 3000Mhz.

you could probably game like that idk what settings you would get however video card ram does not add up so you wouldn't get 12gb of vram. you would still have 4. you would want a video card with 8gb of ram for 4k.
