Graphics card for multiple monitor support

Posted 24 August 2014 - 09:35 PM

I am looking to replace my work computers graphics card to support quad monitors. Currently, I am using an Asus GeForce gt610. Any recommendations? Top of my list now is a GeForce 660. I prefer cheaper to a $500 card as it is my work comp. Right now I am running dual 2k's and just don't have enough space for documents, IRE, and all of the browsers I keep open.

Don't know if you bought yet, but the card you are using is not bad. However, ATI have served me well over the years, and to be honest, Nvidea cards tend to burn out to quickly. Depending on your needs, (maybe you're an occasional gamer in your spare time.) Then maybe take a look at the 7x series. There is the previous 6x series if you find the 7x versions to expensive.

Thanks. I just wanted a sub $200 card. The most intensive thing it will possibly handle is Adobe Photoshop.

If you want something cheaper than what I recommended, then you'd be looking at the 5x series or even the 4x series as such; 4800 from ATI or the SapphireSapphire R9 270x. Alternatively against my better advice, you could also try Nvidia: GeForce GTX750

The 4800, I had one of them, and it served me a few years before she died. :( Most recommended, and well within your budget Aston.

FYI - I was looking at a EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB .. it looks to support up to four monitors so two shouldn't be a problem.

I'm looking for support of 4, the gtx610 handles dual 2k monitors without any issues. And I have found the std 660 for as little as $160

Most of the links i gave you can support 2 monitors. Also with the adaption of split cables you can cut your cost ^ See Modi's post. ;)

AMD Radeon™ HD 6670 Graphic Card: supports multi-monitors with DirectX11, link:6670

ATI Radeon™ HD 5550 Graphics Card: supports playing using 3 monitors with a 24.5-28.8 GB/s DDR3 or 57.6-64 GB/s GDDR5 speed, link:5550

ATI Radeon™ HD 5750 Graphics Card: you can use multi-monitors with it for the 'ultimate multiple display panoramic gaming experience', link:5750

and the highest in the 5000 series: ATI Radeon™ HD 5970 Graphics, supports multi-montiors with a super bandwidth memory of 256.0 GB/s and GDDR5 memory its good for multi-monitors and for high gaming so you got 2 in 1 which is nice 5970

theres lots of other graphic cards that is better but those are the mid-power cards. i use ATI Radeon HD 5450
