You can't run more than 2 displays with an nvidia card. You would need 2 for that, and since you want cuda this is kind of going to screw you over. Get a 6950 then.

you are looking at 2x 450 if you want cuda and 3 displays for $200 which is kinda a bad deal for everything else.

no nvidia single gpu currently supports 3 displays. you'd need 2 of them for what ever you choose.

by CS you mean adobe CS? cuda is supported in that and does offer some nice things.

Heres the gpu support list but you won't be able to do 3 monitors for any single of the gpus.

oh nvm, that gpu will work with 5 displays, just make sure you have the mini hdmi cables. I was no aware they made a special card for multiple displays. It should work well.

Worked perfectly out of the box. Ran 3 x 22" LCD monitors off of one GTX275. If you arent looking to spend an ungodly amount of $$$ for a GPU that supports multi-displays, then go with Matrox Triplehead2go.

Do you do anything professional in photoshop that would require gpu processing because the cpu can do fine, just a bit slower.

you can do with a radeon in that case which would probably be much cheaper for the same gaming performance than that specially designed card.

Worked prefectly in gaming, Adobe After Effects, Sony Vega. Don't really mess around with PS, so idk. What I do know is that you can find a TH2G for 200-300 easy, you wont have to upgrade your GPU (unless you want to) and it splits your 1 x digital signal into 3 x digital signals. They way your attempting to go about it, will likely end up with you having 1 digital signal and 2 analog signals, which is not optimal for what you are trying to do with 3 displays. IMO try it out, and if you dont like it, send it back for a refund.

You would need an sli setup, how about buying 1 gtx 560ti for now and then getting one later for sli? Also I have seen people run 2 displays off of 1 card and then another display with the intel hd 3000 and z68 board.

Only option I can think of is getting a GTX460 2win or a 560 2win, or a GTX590.... But 600 series is rumoured to support more than 2 monitors, as a nice change.
