I currently have a AMD ATHLON II X2 245 2.91 GHZ 2.00 GB RAM spare machine, I want to add 2 pci video cards to it to run 4 monitors in span mode. it will be used just to browse the internet and play online poker, nothing else. Can it be done without upgrading other things? Well, probably need a bigger power supply for 2 cards. Keeping the cost down is my main goal.
Thank you very much,
More about :quad monitors video cards older machine
i think hd 5850 maybe too much?? o.O
ive heard the radeon hd 6xxx series can go as far as quad monitors on one card...
but the lowest u can go with 6xxx series is 6850 i think... its kind of expensive of ur on tight budget...
other option would be using two low end cards... i think both manufacturers can go quad monitors with two cards... nvidia surround or ati eyefinity
The ati solution can easily pan out nicely if the driver works as expected. Going with two cheap nvidia cards is not a bad idea and you can do quad monitors on that setup. You can get more than 3 three unlike one up there had said. Had a friend that had five monitors working off one machine.
