Cheapest graphics card that can handle 3 monitors

Post by jewgienij » Fri May 11, 2018 12:24 pm

Hi,

I am looking for a cheapest (and lowest power consumption) graphics card that can handle 3 monitors:
- 1 x LG 34UC88 UltraWide 21:9 QHD 3440x1440 (must be connected using DisplayPort)
- 2 x Dell U2412M 16:10 1920x1200 (preferably connected using DisplayPort and HDMI-DVI).

Right now I'm using a 1080 Ti, but that's an overkill (I don't play any games). I want to sell that card and get something with lower power consumption.

Is there any 1050 Ti that can handle such outputs?

What's your motherboard model/display outputs? You can always split between it and a cheaper gfx card like the GT 1030. Many are fanless and have one HDMI and one Displayport.

No, I cannot. My CPU is Ryzen 1700 and it doesn't have integrated graphics.

Next up would be the RX 550 followed by the GTX 1050 (in terms of performance). Most of them have 1 dual link DVI, 1 HDMI and 1 Displayport.
