You are a

Pixel


I have 3 but I give millions.

Each pixel has three sub-pixels, which when combined can produce millions of colors.

People value me higher when I give more.

Greater color depth, or more colors, is considered desirable for video displays

People don't see my size until a couple are dead?

You don't realize how small a pixel is until you have a dead pixel on your display

If I die people throw me away.

People throw away TVs or monitors that die

If I break you will be annoyed.

But a broken/cracked screen on its own is an annoyance, and people will still use them

When I die I give one

A dead pixel always shows one color

    $\begingroup$ @VarunW.: I feel like "if I die" and "if I break" aren't referring to the actual answer.
