- Three computer monitors
If you’re doing professional CAD, AMD makes specific FirePro cards that are designed for multi-monitor setups:

ivy bridge processors will support up to 3 video outputs. so getting an ivy bridge processor with a Z77 motherboard that has a D-Sub, DVI and Hdmi outputs will help you without getting a graphics card. the integrated graphics on ivy bridge, while being horrible for gaming, will be fine for viewing spreadsheets.
My current card is an NVIDIA Geforce 210, it was only £18 but it drives two monitors fine. It has D-SUB, DVI-D and HDMI outputs so apparently having three outputs doesn’t actually mean it can drive three monitors all at once (all my monitors are LG ones and each one has the same three types of connector)!Posted 4 years ago
I’m currently running two monitors on my PC using a video card and not the on board video which appears to be disabled when the extra card goes in. The card has three connectors but when you plug three monitors in only any two of them can be used. Windows recognises all three as does the video card driver but it can only display a picture on any two of them.
So, what’s the cheapest way of being able to use all three monitors? I don’t game, its just a bit of light CAD, SketchUp plus email or whatever.Posted 4 years agoCougarSubscriber
