Hi there can anyone help me in finding a answer to this please?

i want to drive 3 monitors so i have 3 seperate displays from 1 card. will Asus Nvidia GT640 card do this?
http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/GT6402GD3/

if so will it be compatible in a PCIE 2.0 slot on a ASUS P5QL pro MoBo?
http://www.asus.com/Motherboard/P5QL_PRO/

i think it's ok, just want to have 2nd opinion.

if not, can anyone recommend a solution for that mobo?

just to add, it's not for gaming, but audio software so doesn't need to be intense.

many thanks.

Depends, what resolutions would you want to run the 3 monitors at?

i have 3 x 22" iiyama prolite e2207ws, again its for audio software ( reason ) so it doesn't have to be pushed to the max.

Thanks

Yes, it can run 3 monitors.

Just make sure to download the newest drivers from nvidia's website do not install the cd ones that would come with it.
