I have a low profile chasis and need to provide video to 3 monitors. I'm wondering what the solution you would recommend is? I have 3 slots available... 1 PCI, 1 PCI-E, 1 I have no idea what it is. So 3 different slots but need to provide video to 3 monitors at a reasonable cost. Desktop is only used for standard office use. Not graphics or games.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks, @ct1615 did you have a card recommendation that had a display port? or can you actually use the Diamond BV200 and BV300 together to run accross 3 displays I wonder? One would utilize PCI and the other PCI-E. Sounds like the lowest cost solution but if it wouldn't work it would be a huge waste of shipping!

i'm recalling this off the top of my head since I only read about it (and its been a few months) but if you look at the xfx I linked, you would use a low profile bracket and then run one cable from each port, you would must likely need an adapter for the display port.

You'd need one display port monitor, one DVI, and one VGA. That or 3 DVI/VGA monitors along with the required converter so you can actually use the Display Port output from the card.

Tried to find the 5470 but that Newegg.com link doesn't resolve when I click it so I searched for the product on their site and others to no avail. Is it an HD radeon 5470?
