Three monitors with 2560 x 1440 needed, which graphic card strategy should I choose?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I need ultra high res displays for my stock market charts.

I have an HP computer model h9-1182 running windows 7 home premium service pack 1 microsoft signature computer. The processor is intel core i7-3770 cpu @ 3.4 ghz installed ram is 16 gb unit is 64 bit operating system. I am looking to install either a separate graphics card for each 2560 x 1440 monitor or one card with three dvi dual link ports but will need to achieve an extended desktop across 3 monitors. Can anyone recommend the best graphics hardware for this requirement? Anyone using three displays as one desktop?
Thanks in advance!

you can get SLI GTX Titan or 3 X Titan for it as the card got 6GB which that might help you to run the game that resolution on best texture setting .
if you go for 3 X 680 or 3X 670 or even 3X 690 the ram won't be enough and you will wish you get one with more ram.

edit : sorry ,i read but i missed the ' for the stock market charts ' bit lol ^_^

But if it's just for working and looking at stock (no gaming), there is really no need at all for 3 gpus. Mostly any current gen graphics card should do it.

Go with any midrange AMD card, 7770 for example. AMD has a much simpler multiscreen solution than nVidia. Eyefinity setup is really quick and easy. I run a 2 screen desktop.

Problem is going to be 3 DVI ports. At most you get 2, but you can always just get DisplayPort-DVI adapters, they still support 1440p resolutions

^ did not read a thing.


Any new gen card with more than 2GB of memory should push your applications easily.

Now getting into any kind of fast motion activity might give you a hassle.

Your best bet is to get 1440p monitors with displayport. Your computer is not the top of the line computer - an unknown 600W power supply powers it. Then use any AMD graphics cards with 2x miniDisplayPort, which will allow you to run the 3 monitors via 2x miniDisplayPort and 1x DL-DVI.

Avoid DP->DL-DVI adapters if you can at all do so. They are notoriously finicky under the best of conditions and will likely cause headaches because they semi-randomly fail to work (and are expensive to boot).
