Looking to get 3 monitor desktop for work, cheapest, most reliable way to do so?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So,

I'm looking to run 3 monitors at work now on my work computer. It has a Q6600 in it and 650w power supply. I'm running windows xp and not doing anything demanding off of it. Just excel stuff and internet, etc. I'm running 19" monitors, nothing fancy, low resolutions lol. What graphics cards to you recommend me getting, or is there an adapter to allow a single graphics card to run 3 monitors? Also this must be reliable, not looking to OC or anything, as it is a work computer.

Thanks for the help!

Yep, but definitely overkill for just a work machine.
