Hi guys,

I have a PNY GeForce 8500 GT

and a

Evga-E-Geforce 8800GT

I also have two PCIExpress 2.0 16x slots so I could theoretically install both.

I want to run two 1920x1080 side by side LCD's and one 1024x768.

Will these cards be powerful enough?

Also, if I leave out the 1024x768 monitor, will either of the two cards be enough by themselves to run the two full HD screens?

Thanks!

Are you just trying to fun the monitors or game on them at the same time?

Forgot to mention,

I am running Windows XP Pro 64 Bit SP2
2GB DDR2 800 (this will be upgraded to 4GB before end of the week)
Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4 Ghz
I will be running one or two charting programs, no games. I keep it running very light, no unneeded programs open.

If you aren't gaming or anything then it doesn't matter how "powerful" the video cards. Honestly you have overkill for what you are doing, so you are good to go.

Just connect two monitors to one card and the third monitor to the second card. If you're not gaming, it really shouldn't matter.

As simple as that was, I needed that direction. Thanks!
