So I have learned that you have for Eyefinity you have stretch or extension.

I have a VERY TIGHT $150 BUDGET for video card and PSU.

*Buy a PSU from micro- center (500 Watts) put a replacement plan to see if the Inland Gold brand can hold up more than the stereotype of off-brands)

*I want to do Eyefinity?
*3 Dell, Vga only, 17" inch Monitors, max resolution 1290 x 1024 .. (No chance of getting new ones)

So my bro is gonna give me $150.00 for a video card

I'd rather get a new Video card and PSU for $150.00 but I know I might have to push the PSU alone another week (which is fine i'd can spend 50 bucks for a thermal-take)

So with that being said please mention nothing about monitors please..
I can get adapters of course, but if resolution isn't high that's fine I am not totally hardcore.. I just want this to run like BF4 and titan fall decently..

From Experiences... Whats the bottom low card I can get and run eyefinity across 3? will the 1024 res work with extension monitors? Heck no? I have to get a Triplehead?

Which Video cards should I get.? Do I need a display port adapter to be used if it's 2 Video cards like 5970? Then that way I can do Crossfire/SLI? Or use 1 and get an adapter?

Please guys/gals advise on my 3 dell 17" monitor with 1024 res and $150 budget.

My local micro-center store is Maryland /Rockville. I'd rather buy there...

I don't think you are going to be able to run 3 monitors for games like bf4 and titanfall on a 100$ gpu.

How about you get a single 1080p monitor, and put how much you saved off the others toward a nicer gpu.

Also, the gpu, a 5750 will not run current games above low settings on a single monitor

Honestly, I think you should give up on the triple monitor gaming until you get some digital monitors. Not to mention you'd need a video card that supports eyefinity. So that's one display port plus hdmi or dvi. You'd have to get so many adapters. Plus there's no telling if it'll sync well with all of the passive/active adapters.

However, that being said, if you can get your hands on a monitor with a digital port, buy the new GTX 750 Ti. You won't be gaming on triple monitors with it but you can certainly game with tweaked settings of your choice.

Best of luck!

Ok well buying new monitors are out the windows, What would have been more constructive to a few answers above was "how about you just buy a triplehead2go.... since your using VGA" DUE TO my budget.

But I do appreciate that, I have a 6450 asus edition NON-CROSSFIRE.. and it handles bf3 well on low.. I am fine with low..I have a 360 and a Asus G75 .. this is gonna because I can and for fun .... I already have a stupid 6450 HD better than people claim it tobe and a 8400gs working together for a regular extended desktop.. Plus a LIFE ..

I said $150.00 is the budget lol not give me more things to buy.. now if it's impossible to spend $150.00 on Video card (even after market ones) and get surround/eyefinity with 1024 RES VGA MOnitors ..tell/show me .. but

Can someone perhaps find something on Microcenter.com Rockville location and say maybe hey get this for $xx in your budget and then upgrade to this later.. ( Mind you when you buy a replacement plan.. at any given moment you can take that 150.00 item and get all your cash back plus tax.. and use it for lets say a 190.00 item)

There is no way in hell I am getting 3 digital monitors for less than $100 bucks.. If I decided to pull $100 extra out my butt lol . So help within the range please.... EVEN if the gaming has to stay on low and it MIGHT BE possible but I might make a trip back to the store a month later to upgrade... I am a Guy who works in the Tech world and literally game maybe 4 hours a week if i am lucky... I won't be sad to have to play on low.

I already have 3 Dell 17/19" 1280x 1024 max resolution monitors..

My Hd 6450 now can run on crysis barely on low.. and battlefield 3 fine on low/med . It doesn't bother.. me.. this intrigues me to have but I am not about perfect awesome graphics.. Hell I love the gamecubes graphics..

It's a blessing to finally have put the money I have so far into this but I don't have much ... That's why I am pushing something like


http://www.microcenter.com/product/409617/GeForce_GTX_5...

would two of those work?

I actually saw a triplehead to go for 125 on amazons...

Now as far as the 3 DIGI monitors.. EVEN if i pulled another 100 something ( like asked a certain someone) I would only be able to do like $100 ish. )

Thanks alot for the help.. what ya think?
