How to display on 3-4 Monitors

What is the best way to utilize 3-4 displays? Is it as simple as getting another video card and putting it into an empty slot?

  1. Depends on the card, some can run 6 monitors on their own.
  2. I am currently running this video card.

    EVGA GeForce GT 610 02G-P3-2617-KR Video Card - 2GB, GDDR3, PCI-Express 2.0 (x16), 2x Dual-link DVI, Mini-HDMI, DirectX 11

    Just upgraded to this card. I do not do any gaming just want more desktop real estate. Occasionally watch some HBO stuff on the screen. At this time using dual Dell P2210 Monitors via DVI.
  3. That card does support running multiple monitors.
  4. its not powerful enought to run tri-display. whats ur budget for a new gpu?

    Yes it is, so long as the OP is just using the rig for 2D work.
  6. well i talt he needed for 3d also, but thats a low quality card, i have hard time beleiving u could run 3 monitors off of it?.

    i guess we learn something everyday.
  7. What kind of card is needed if I run to run Far Cry 3 at max settings on 3 displays simlutaneously. Or at least at medium settings. Woot. Woot.
  8. give me the rest of ur specs and ill let u know.

    Something a darn sight more expensive than that 610 that's for sure, FC3 is an AMD sponsored title so you might want to look at AMD cards if that game is important to you.

    I know it does but will it allow me to run 3 monitors? Can I use the mini hdmi to run a monitor if I can find the right cable.

    I'm pretty sure you'll find that there are people gaming on three monitors at max or close to settings that didn't spend $1800 on graphic cards to do so.
  22. ok maybe i was exaggerating but i talt he meant ultra quality on 3 monitors. thats pretty hard to obtain without 2 680-slis even than.

    I think the OP meant more medium to max as opposed to just ultra.
  26. ah alright than 2x670s ir 2x7950s would do the trick.
