GPU for 2x 1920x1080

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just added a 27inch 1080 screen to my 24inch and want to upgrade my GPU as well. I've been looking at a few different 560Tis but am open to other ideas. Should I go with something with more memory to support those two resolutions. I'm willing to spend up to $400 CAD and would prefer a single card. Lower the price is better but if the step up is significant I don't mind spending more for significant performance increase.

Also, I assume I will need to upgrade my PSU so any suggestions on that would be cool too.

If all you want is a single card, a 700w will probably handle everything up to a GTX 580 quite comfortably. If you're not going to be gaming on them (I don't know why you would game on two monitors anyway..) then a 560Ti is more than enough power for two monitors.

I'd be gaming on the main and streaming hockey on the secondary
