Well technically a radeon 5770 can run 3x monitors but you're not gonna be able to run most games at 5760x1080 without lowering the settings.

This is NOT something you want to do on a low budget unless you get free stuff that actually can do stuff..

what if I'm not setting this monitor up for games, what if I'm just using it to just multitask and open up multiple programs?

Then it all depends on what performance you want. I still recommend a used 5770 if you want it extremely cheap.

Or 6870 if you can afford it


If you only play on a single screen, both will do.
