Need advice on computer for 3 42" displays

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I hope this is the appropriate section. Basically I need to display 3 power point presentations each on a separate 42" display and possibly using one computer. How can I do that?

I also need to buy the tvs and the computer. My budget is 500 max for each display and around 400 for the computer.

The displays will be around 20-25 feet away from the computer, therefore I'll be needing long dvi or hdmi or whatever ports.

Any input will be appreciated, thank you smile.gif

edit: basically I'll end up having 4 displays, 1 for the desktop computer and 3 others to view 3 separate powerpoint presentations. Is there a single GPU that can handle this configuration?

Any eyefinity 6 amd card can handle up to 6 monitors/TVs at once.

You can go for this HD7750 eyefinity 6 and TV's with display port

But since you only need 4 displays,
You can get a normal HD6670 for 3 displays, and a lowpower HD6450 for the 4th display.
It will be cheaper but you need a motherboard with two PCI-E slots.

How about this one?

that card, and all of nvidia's new cards only support a maximum of 3 displays.
(someone correct me if im wrong, but im 99% positive on this)

if you get the GTX650, you will still need a 2nd cheap videocard for the 4th TV, unless your motherboard can run onboard gpu and PCI-E gpu at the same time.
I can run 4 monitors with my signature rig "adobe workhorse" since my board supports using the onboard gpu together with the HD6850.

Look around for a used eyefinity 6 card, you may find a cheap HD5770 eyefinity6 version.
If gaming or speed is not important, just get any two cheap cards like GT610 / HD6450 and make them power 2 displays each.

This is the computer I've ordered from newegg, and this is the GPU. I also got 3 x 39" LED TV screens @ 1080p.

The CPU comes with an iGPU; so can I use the iGPU to manage the the desktop display and then the dedicated GPU for the big TV screens?

I was also able to find the software that will let me view multiple powerpoint presentations across different monitors:

edit 1 : according to the GPU specs, it should support up to 4 displays, simultaneously. If it's not going to work I'll simply use the iGPU to manage the smaller display smile.gif
