Hey my computer has the following specs:

GTX 560 TI graphics card
8 GB RAM
ASUS M4A88T-M/USB3 motherboard
AMD Phenom II X2 560 processor
Silverstone Strider Essential 600W Power Supply

My question is:

Is this good enough to run two monitors at the same time or do I need to upgrade anything.

Any help or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

With 2 monitors your 560 should do great if you have at least 1024GB memory on your
graphics card.

It will run fine, but multi-tasking will cause some slowdown since your cpu is a dual core. I'd upgrade that first.

your system is fine to run a multimonitor set up and multitask. i have no problems image editing in PS, html editing 10 documents and having several browsers open with several tabs each.

Looks fine to me.

I run two monitors most of the time. Idle temps are about 12-15c higher though. - I do a lot of online poker, so I have my main monitor setup while multi-tabling and run my PT3 software on the other. Temps are usually around 43c.

Running a 23" 1920x1080, and the other is fairly low-res.

I have a 560ti 2gb and i7 w/ 650w PSU.
