Problem: I want to have all three Monitors...


I want to have all three Monitors working together.

I have looked at an external video (USB-to-VGA,DVI,HDMI)
$45-$50 (@1680x1050)

However, I've got a gift card to "BestBuy" $20 and I was looking at the sale they had on video cards.

I'm looking to spend no more than $50 ($70 @ BestBuy).

I am asking which is the option I should take:


Another video card using (One PCI Express x1 or PCI) slot
Get a card that supports 3 displays?

  1. You wand three monitors connected as if it is one giant monitor?

    Sorry to break it to ya, but first, your three monitors all have to be the same resolution, and you're going to need something like a $300 video card to run that system...
  2. They do not have to be the same resolution, I would like for all the to be working on the same computer. Example- One page excel, another word, last one a video. I don't expect to have one video across all three.

    As this is my first post, I am sorry for the lack if information.
  3. Ahh, in that case a much cheaper card would work. Donna much about the 6670 you are looking at though, sorry. It should work on paper...
  4. You posted more than enough information, dont worry there.
    vmem is talking about eyefinity with the same resolutions, dont worry about that.

    The thing is though that your nVidia card does not do more than 2 monitors, and your motherboard I dont think supports adding another video card, SLI.
    Next, the card you have picked out, an XFX 6670 does not support 3 monitors and thats roughly the best you will be able to do for $50. Any chance to increase your budget a little bit more?

    I will look for a cheap card that supports 3 monitors
  5. I think this is the cheapest card you can find that will support 3 monitors...
    $75 after rebate + $7 shipping

    For $50 you can get a usb to dvi or vga or hdmi, whatever connector you need for your 3rd monitor
