6 Monitor GPU

Hey I'm looking for a 6 monitor GPU such as the 5870 and 6870, along with the asus 6950. Can someone please give me a link to a used or new card. (One of those 3) for the cheapest price? I've been looking around and a lot of those cards aren't available on Newegg, so a url for a cheap price would be awesome, thanks.

  1. Hello,
    If you are going to be playing games on those 6 monitors, 1 video card will have a problem with decently new games at that high of a resolution.

    But anyways to answer your question http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121431

    BTW to enable more than 2 monitors via EYEFINITY, you will need 4 native displayport monitors, or use active displayport adapters.

    EDIT:
    Can you please answers the following questions?

    Will you be gaming on all 6 of those monitors simultaneously?
    Will you be using eyefinity or seperate monitor setup?
    What is "cheap" to you? $300?

    Yes
    I'll be running 6 24" Asus monitors on one card
    Cheap is under 300
  3. Going 6 monitor gaming setup with a under $300 graphic card is kind of a bad idea. You'd ideally want to crossfire 6950's at least.

    I completely agree with the that posted above me... hence why i asked you if you will be gaming.(If you weren't then there wouldn't be a problem, but you are so my followup response would have been- you will probably need to get another one of those for crossfire)

    Would would I avg FPS on crysis with that setup?
  6. Based off a benchmark i found, a 6950 will run crysis 2 max settings at

    47 avg fps
    66 max fps

    BUT these numbers are at 1920 x 1080. (I'm guessing that is just 1 of your monitors resolution)

    So if you were to run it with all 6 of your monitors... it probably wouldn't be at a stable/playable fps.
  7. when running a 6 monitor setup you have to make sure your video card can support it. If running eyefinity technology for instance made by amd/ati, make sure your ati card can support a 6 monitor eyefinity setup. it seems you are only getting 3 out of 6 displays to work, possibly your video card is not advanced enough to handle the 6 displays. google amd eyefinity FAQs. this will show you which cards support up to 6 displays. to get up to multiple displays through nvidia technology you must be running sli. i hope this helps you solve your monitor issues.

  11. lol @ inzone getting a few threads mixed up (i think thats whats going on :D)

    aaanywho, i highly doubt you would even get above 20fps on medium with dual 6950s at that res...

    11,520 x 6,480 i would take a look at the performance difference between 1920 x 1080 and the 2560 x 1600... http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-6950-1gb-benchmark,3041-11.html

    thats JC2... the least demanding (currentish) game i can seem to find :D
