hey i want to know if my motherboard and graphics card can support 3 displays with none of them being duplicated; i have a Gigabyte Z77-D3H motherboard with an intel core i7-3770k processor. my grpahics card is a galaxy GT610 silent edition 2G. and i was wondering whether this can support 3 monitors or if i need to upgrade just my graphics card or my motherboard aswell

cheers!

not games on all 3

2 of the outputs would be computer monitors for gaming and the 3rd output is a tv for movies and tv shows etc

GT 610 is like the slowest/weakest gpu among the 600 series, sorry but i would not suggest using that card even for single monitor

i would suggest (of course the decision is yours), that you get 1 decent monitor, then use the remaining money to get a good GPU. You have a very good CPU, its like one harm having huge muscle, with the other hand an arm of a baby

dont get me wrong, 7770 is a decent card if you dont have a budget. but paired with your cpu, it would still be a serious bottleneck
