dude why get that processor for 3x 4K monitor?

your CPU is gonna not be able to handle that load at all at gaming.
Get a 4930k or 4820K for 3 graphic cards like 3x R9 290 or 3x NVIDIA 780Ti.

I wanted to recommend a 4770K, but at 4K you can only effectively use 2 graphic cards max due to limited PCIexpress lanes. 4770K with z87 has 16 PCIe 3.0 lanes. At 3x 4k you will need more bandwidth. Only x79 provides that with 40 PCIe 3.0 lanes.

4K is no joke on graphic cards you will sometimes not even get 60FPS even with 3 GPU and certainly not with that CPU.


I just read that you are not gonna be gaming. Then your CPU should be fine sorry read too fast biggrin.gif
1x R9 290 should be enough as far as i know. The 4GB video ram is gonna very useful for 3x 4K resolution for everyday tasks. Idk what other GPU can handle 3x 4K monitors. I think you need minimum 3GB video ram I could be wrong though.

Make sure you get a quiet version fan like a sapphire tri-x. Do not buy a reference R9 290 unless you are going to watercool they are pretty loud .

I don't know if any other cheaper GPU will be able to handle 3x 4K someone else needs to chime in.
You can try using your integrated GPU in that AMD A10-7850K. Idk how many connector it has though. That integrated GPU probably doesn't have enough Video Ram though.

Btw what connectors do the monitors use Dual DVI?
