    You have to "upgrade" the psu, specially if it's a no name brand one, get a decent one within 450-500W.
    Other than that, yes it's compatible.

    Ahhh ok, is there any card that would be better for around the same price line? im looking for a card that can support 3monitors and have decent FPS with High graphics settings on most games
  4. There's the 7850 from amd, which is better for just a bit more.
  5. Yea I agree that the 7850 would be the card to go for and I would try and get at least a 2 gigabyte card when going into a multi monitor setup as a start. However one thing that needs to be specified do you intend to span your games over the 3 monitors or just one.

    as an example.

    I found that would that also working knowing my Motherboard only has a PCI-e 2.0 x16 slot?

    It really depends what game im playing...Although i will most likely span it over 3monitors if i can :)
  8. Yes, it will work, pcie 3.0 is backwards compatible with previous pcie.
    I'd get this one : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127663

    Alright I guess i will go with a 7850 then...which way would it be better to set up the three monitors? just split the DVI into 3DVIs? the monitors i have do not have HDMI output..
  10. Only dvi ?
    You must get a displayport adapter to dvi.
    Also the asus card will be better for that, it has two dvi, so you just need the dp adapter.
  11. If you use eyefinity (spanning) you will need 1 display port and two dvi. If your monitor doesn't have display port you would need to buy an adapter.

    They have 1DVI-D dual link 1VGA and component?
  13. You have to use the displayport in the card, get a dp adapter to dvi.
  14. Here is a DP to DVI You would want something like this I know its out of stock but this is the item.

    ahhh ok thank you for your help :)
  16. Thank you both for your help...
  17. From my understanding it should do, need atleast a 400w powersupply though at minimum, maybe a 450w-550w if you're planning on upgrading in the future.

    Out of curiosity what is your current graphics card? And what games are you planning on playing with this new card?
  18. Not a problem. Just remember spanning a game over 3 screens will be taxing on your GPU and your frames will reflect it.
  19. Yes, a single 7850 won't cut it for a triple monitor setup, you'll have to play with the lowest settings.

  22. Hmm, interesting interesting. If you were going with a multi monitor solution I would recommend something like a GTX660.
