I mainly do graphics work with Maya Photoshop and like software. My dilemma, unknown to me the 8700 only supports two monitors. I recently purchased a 3rd monitor a dell u2711. So now I am trying to figure out a way to get my 3 monitor setup to work without having to shell out a bunch of money for another graphics card for a monitor that I will mainly be using for extra space for panels and other non essential things. A friend at work suggested I use my motherboards on board GPU to power the 3rd monitor will this work and if so does anyone know of any caveats. I fear getting a performance hit with the 8700 it runs so well I’d hate to do anything to change that, but I really need this third monitor to work. Does anyone have any other ideas of a cost effective solutions which may fix my issue.
Here are the details of my system I believe needed.
Monitors> 1- Dell Ultrsharp U2711/ 2 - LG W2243T-PF
Motherboard> Asus M4A78T-E
Graphics card> ATI Firepro v8700
Operating System> Windows 7 64bit
PS. As a added note I have a Radeon 5770 sitting around collecting dust if that helps.
