I currently have a Galaxy MDT running 3 monitors. The software that comes with the monitor is not very robust. The MDT can only be set 4x1 or 2x2 configurations.
I would like to find a new video card to control 4 monitors and I would be able to place the monitors in any orientation. For online school, I'd like to have a developer tool, internet, ebook and another application open at the same time (Usually Word/Excel)
I do play games on the PC too, but not very often, I'd like to be able to do a game of Guild Wars with my son once in a while.
Can anyone recommend a video card? I'd like to stay round $200.
My computer has PCI-E 16x. (eMachines ET1352G-03w) and I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. I have 4GB installed on the motherboard.
AMD has pretty good multi-monitor software, and their hydra driver/utility can configure just about any combination of sizes and orientations. You do need displayport though for any third and above monitor connection.
edit: DO check your power supply first, it maybe unadvisable to run this card in that computer. Make, model, wattage on the 12v (picture would be nice). Consider yourself limited to a 7750 without more information.
