I have two 22 inch dell monitors (1680 X 1050) I have a small 17" (1280 x 1024) lastly I have a 40" Sony 1080P TV. I would like to run all four screens at once. I don't really game at all but do watch movies and stream tv shows. What is the best graphics card setup?
I am really looking to build a whole new system but I figured the graphics card would fix the rest of my budget. Was thinking i7.
In my current computer I have a ATI Radeon HD 3650 with 1GB. Any chance I could reuse it or would it just slow down the new computer?
Plan on using two graphics cards, and build using a motherboard with at least two pci-e slots.
Get a stronger video card for the monitors on which you might play games, and reuse the 3650 for the other two monitors.
But, since you do not game, then any graphics card will do. Assuming your TV has HDMI inputs, get a card with a HDMI output.
It would be best to make your second card a ATI card so you can use the same graphics driver.
I use a 5870 for a 30" main gaming monitor, and a 3450 for a second 30" monitor which mostly has e-mail and such static stuff on it.
