msi r9 280x tf 3gb ( http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-video-card-r9280xgaming3g ) it has 4 ports so can it handle 4 monitors?

I wouldn't buy that new, you could get a R9 290X for that price which would decimate it.

GPUs in the Radeon R9 family support up to three HDMI or DVI displays, and you can add up to three more (using DisplayPort) to rock six monitors in all. There are some stipulations: All the displays must support identical timings, and you must configure the display clocks and timing at boot time—hot-plugging is not supported.

Note that to achieve the extra 3 monitors you may need to daisy-chain monitors using DP 1.2 or higher, and with multiple DP ports on each monitor using DP as signal (one for input, one for output to another monitor).
