Goal: I want to upgrade my system, so I can have 4 monitors.
Below is the current system and I need help with determining if I need a new PSU and what kind of mother board I should go with and so on.. I don't want to spend to much, however I do want the best value.
To run multiple monitors you'd need a graphics card that can output to each . AMD's eyefinity system is probably your best option . If this is for gaming you will need a very powerful graphics system , as well as more powerful cpu to get playable frame rates .
A graphics card needs a pci-e x16 slot , but can reach almost all of its potential in an 8x slot . That means its OK to crossfire or SLI using an x8/x8 motherboard , but a mb with a x16 and a x4 slot can only run one graphics card effectively
My goal is just to have 4 monitors for developing purposes. I can careless about running a game across 4 monitors. I do however want to get the best bang for the buck, so crossfire / sli graphics card is the only way to go?
