In my personal rig that I plan to build (http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/partlist/) I'm running a 2GB GDDR5 1536 CUDA core MSI GTX 770. I currently have an Acer S200HQL (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/acer-20-led-hd-monitor/8816...) and want to have a 1080p monitor for gaming. I want to have the 2 Acers on the left and right for productivity and the 1080 in the center for gaming/movies. My question, finally, is if my GPU will be able to handle running the three monitors. Note: Only 1 monitor will be used while gaming, no panoramic. Also any ~24in 1080 monitor recommendations are welcomed! Thank you!
It will just be able to do 3 monitors but gaming is going to take a hit if you have the other 2 monitors on at the same time. The main problem is the 2gb of memory. Each monitor is going to use a large portion of your memory so having only 2 is going to be a problem. My suggestion would be to buy one cheap video card with 2 video outs and use that as your card for "productivity" and your gaming will be unhindered.
