Hello All,

Im having great difficulty trying to find a proper card that can run (3) 30inch LCD screens, there will not be much intensive gaming on this PC, and even if there was to be gaming it would not need to run across 3 screens.

Basically, more interested in being able to have the 3 monitors run independently of each other as they own screens, not stretched as 1 screen over the 3.

Thank you in advance.

Most of the GTX 580's have 2x DVI and 1x HDMI. I don't think there is a card with more HDMI ports than DVI though.

GTX 580 seems kind of high priced, are there any alternatives?

Looks like a lot of cards have the same setup, 6770, 6970, GTX 550 Ti, 560, etc.

If you are looking for a single card solution then, your choices are limited. The following Galaxy 56NGH6DM3TTX MDT X5 GTX 560 Ti ($293 after rebate) is the only video card from Newegg that can support more than 2 HDMI monitors:

Otherwise you need to install two video cards, one of which must have 2 HDMI ports while the other must have at least 1 HDMI port.

Well, how about any mix of DVI HDMI then as long as it can handle 3 monitors.

Be careful when you buy a graphics card with HDMI slot. My new GTX560TI has a Version 1.4a slot and my TV a 1.3. Of course they are both different sizes and now I'm struggling to find an adapter.
