I have a GTX 780 and a Intel i5-3570k and have a 1920x1080 monitor. I'm going to buy a new monitor with best graphics for the price. I were wondering if my computer could handle two monitors 1 1920x1080 and 1 2560x1440 or 2560x1600. Are they cost worthy etc. Thanks.

Ya 780 can handle two monitors.
But lot will depend on your RAM also.
How much?

2560x1600 tends to cost a lot more than 2560x1440. I'd stick with 2560x1440. Your GTX 780 will do well at 1440p.

Here's a sample:

GTX 780, Crysis 3, 2560x1600, 37 fps on very high settings

That's with a single 2160p monitor.

It also gets 25 fps at 5,760 x 1,080, i.e with 3 1080p monitors. That's pretty much the same resolution you would have with 1080p+1440p.

Your system should be able to handle 1440 just fine although not all games will be able to handle that resolution.

True. You will have to lower image quality settings or accept lower fps or lower the resolution if the game is very demanding. That's why SLI and Crossfire were invented...


What kind of motherboard and power supply do you have? Just curious to see if you can add a second card - if you ever want to.

Edit: a PC with two GTX 780 cards should have a PSU rated 850W or more. The motherboard would need two PCI-E x16 slots.
