Dual setup or Triple setup with a single 1080Ti? -

I have a few questions actually. I currently have a single monitor setup with a Asus 24", 1080p 144hz monitor. I have a 1080Ti which I use mostly for 4k on my 4k TV.
But I think it's time I look at upgrading my old 1080p screen to either one nicer 30" or larger widescreen with all the bells and whistles like G-Sync, 165hz and 2k resolution.
I've also been interested in doing a multi monitor set up. 3 might be overkill right now but 2 could be good. But I also don't want to break the bank on this whole thing and not sure I can justify buying 2 Acer Predator Z35BMIPHZ 35" monitors at $1400CAN a piece.
I'd like to find something a bit more budget friendly. G-Sync I guess isn't a must. I'd like 120hz minimum and a 2k screen. I've also heard some people that have a triple monitor setup and something about using low resolution monitors on the side monitors and having the better one in middle? I just assumed you'd want 3 identical monitors. Is this something I can do if so how does that work properly?
As mentioned I have the GTX 1080Ti so I'm not sure it's powerful enough to run two 2k monitors. I'd like to avoid treading into SLI land. Definitely not looking to buy a second video card either if I can help it.
Also, any suggestions on a half decent 2k monitor with a higher refresh rate? I saw the AOC C3583FQ 35" Curved 144Hz 2k Ultrawide Monitor. Not sure if that's a reputable brand but it's only $750CAN vs the $1400CAN for the Predator. Open to other suggestions. Prefer something under $1000.
