Hey, so I have a Galaxy GTX 650 TI and a much older Galaxy Geforce 8400GS.

I currently have my GTX 650 powering two Acer 21.5". My question is if I can take an HP 2211X 21.5" and have it be powered by just the Galaxy 8400GS. I'm not looking for SLI or anything like that. I'd just enjoy having a 3rd monitor because I do a lot of photo editing and want the 3rd one to just play a movie on while I'm using the other two for editing.

I'm using an AMD FX-8350 and AS Rock 990FX Extreme3 and 16GB of Kingston RAM.

The 650 supports 4 monitors though most only have 3 connections. But yes you can use a 8400gs to run more monitors.

Great, thanks mate. The 3rd port on my 650 is an HDMI and none of my three monitors support that, I figured I could use a host of adapters, but would rather just use the 650 specifically for my two editing monitors.

Thanks again mate, gonna get it all hooked up and ready to go now. ^.^
