i,m a novice 1st time builder and built a system based around Asus P8Z77 VPRO, i3570, 8GB ram, Corair 650w PSU, Windows 7 Pro.
All works well except won't run my 3 Viewsonic LCD VGA monitors. Realise it can't be don wirh current setup.
Have active adapters for HDMI-VGA AND DP -VGA.
Looking for a single card to run all 3 monitors with current above setup? Any help would be a huge help as baffled now!

Hey Get an AMD card, like a HD 7770 that should support the 3 screens, and there realy cheap at just over $100 and can also game and should be fine on the PSU u have.

If you game with full specs, a HD 7970 is advised.
If you're gonna do photoshop and mid-low gaming go for a HD 7770- HD 7870

Cool, Thanks guys but tell me, This is eyefinity tech right? My MB has no mini DP outputs just regular DP, HDMI, VGI AND VGA. As mentioned I already have 2 active adapters, don't really want to buy more, will these cards work okay with my current adapters?

I don't game, I trade futures ( hence the 3 screen setup) and just run regular windows apps.

Okay, having read threads on here, i,m concerned the Asus HD7770 cutop won't work with my 3 Viewsonic LCD VGA monitors?

I just want to extend the creens across 3 monitors, no gaming, just need individual windows available on the 3 monitors.

I have 2 active adaptors for DP to VGA, HDMI to VGA.

Eyefinity confuses me, dont want one large image across 3 monitors.

Will this single card work for what I need it to do with my setup?
