Best Possible solution?

What is the best possible solution for a three monitor non-gaming person? The card should be under #100, prefferably the lowest price without losing quality. The highest graphical performance needed is watching Youtube videos. What would be the best card for this, and how would I set it up (what adapters would I need)?

  1. what size power supply would this pc have?
    what type of video input do the monitors support?
    could you be more specific on how you want the monitors to function, 3 monitors acting as one or three independent displays...

    PSU is 450w, Monitors support VGA and DVI ( they are all the same monitors).
    Also, the monitors is just as an extended desktop, not duplicates. So, I can drag my mouse from one screen to another. This is what I would like to happen.
  3. Well the 7770 can be found right now for just below $100 but the 7750 should be good enough for driving 3 screens, even the 6670 would do fine IMO
  4. For non gaming, the best choice is a 6670, it doesn't require auxiliary power, it has a low power consumption, it's a good card for htpc and supports three monitors, no need for more than than, you can find a 1GB DDR3 for around 50$ or less.

    So, I have three of these monitors, with VGA and DVI inputs, (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236115)... So, if I were to get this card, (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125403) what extras would I need, and how would I set it up?

    So how would I configure this, if all three of my monitors have VGA and DVI? what adapters would I need, and how would I connect everything?
  7. ^ you would need an HDMI to DVI adapter, pretty sure they make those

    You need a displayport for it, this card has a display port : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161403
    There's some 6670 with dp, but in newegg, i couldn't find it.

    You need a displayport to dvi and a hdmi to dvi too.
