Hello.
I have 1 VGA and 1 DVI hook up. My card is AMD 7660 D, 10GB Ram 3.5 ghz. One monitor is running thru the VGA. Can I run a splitter cord off of the DVI for two more monitors? Sorry but this is my first gaming computer.

Yes you can, but they are mirrors then. You have to get one graphic card more, if you want extend your desktop without mirroring.

What power supply do you have? You may need to upgrade your psu if your current one isn't strong enough, and what resolution are your monitors?

I have 650W PSU. I got one 1920x1080 and two 1280x1024 monitors.

@Zolicci. The question was for the OP, Iker.

I've ordered an ocz 700 watt psu. I thought the amd 7660d would run 3 monitors and I would not need another card. Will I need the exact same card?
