    Unless you want the monitors to display the same things (that is even with specialised adapters IIRC), no.

    Another option is to add another video card, but that depends on the set-up of your computer.
  3. What graphics/video card do you have?

    I can hook up 2 monitor to mine. Else, I have to add another video card.

    Do you want different (and why wouldn't you) displays on each monitor.

    Think your solution is more graphics/video cards in the PC.

    We need more information: What motherboard, what video cards, what monitors.

    What your motherboard?
    In your case, you could get another Nvidia and connect the other 17 in monitors.

    Thats your CPU.
    Here, get CPUz and you should see it under the "main board" tab.

    Because it helps us know what model your Motherboard is, so if it does have more than 1 PCIe X16 slot, you could just buy another cheap Nvidia card and support the 17 inch monitors.

  22. Then I'm afraid you'll either need a new board, or the triple-head-to-go.
