I would just use the GTX 1080 Ti. Its not going to break a sweat with 3 monitors. https://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html

Also Fedora 25's end of life was "2017-12-12"

I am using the Ysplitter dvi, yes.

Xorg is below. It looks off though...? I think I am on Wayland.

I've never used Wayland yet, but the following is the result of the current F27's Xorg having been attempted:

And the following means you need to remove the file, or fix whatever's on or follows line 76 of, /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Show it to us if you want help figuring out what's wrong with it.

If you reconfigure the bootloader to remove rhgb quiet from it you may see useful boot messages providing clues to problems. The Grub2 bootloader menu may already have a selection that provides this equivalent, termed recovery or rescue or some such. (My Fedoras are installed sans bootloader, so I don't know the precise language in current use.)

This is my Xorg.conf

Wayland is being used by default.

Line 76 is the start of section 3.

Looks like the line 76 error is triggered because the previous section is missing an EndSection line.

I'll fix that.

I can see what the results are ASAP. Can't restart my computer right now to find out.
