Last response: in Graphics & Displays

Hi All,

I am not a gamer. I need help selecting a graphics card. I need a card that will support 3-4 monitors (desktop) at 1920x1200, or some high resolution. I am a scientific programmer and need a card that likes to display FFT's, graphs, etc. with Matlab and other visual program material. Can anyone help? This is the last component I need to have a complete "scientific" build. TIA,

chuck??? :lol: 

In what budget? And can you give detail specs of the rest of the components? Like Motherboard, CPU, PSU, Case, etc.

I'm sorry for not giving all the info in my initial post. My budget is about $250-$300. I currently have in my possession or on order:

-- Asus P8Z68-V/Gen3 MoBo
-- Cooler Master HAF full tower 932 Advanced case
-- Asus 120 GB S511 SSD
-- Corsair HX850W Pwr Supply
-- Intel Core i7-2600K CPU
-- Lite-On IHAS424-98 DVD/CD
-- 16 GB (4x4gb) Corsair DDR3 memory
-- Cooler Master V8 CPU cooler
-- Seagate Barracuda 1 TB 7200 SATA III HDD

This is my first build. I just need a graphics card and 3 monitors to finish up and get building! Thanks for your help!

Why do you have such a crazy PSU if you don't even need one high-end card?

Go AMD for sure, as Eyefinity's just generally nicer.
Hold on for GPU.

The IGP on your CPU can handle 2 monitors as can any low end discrete card. You don't need to spend more than $40 or so.
