Video Card for 3 monitors
 
Hi, I need a GPU for my i7-2600k ( can use the iGPU on this motherboard) I'm thinking to get 2 GPU since I have 3 DVI monitors. I need the one who will take less power and produce less heat and capable to do the work. So what do you think will fit my needs ?

I use it for :

Photoshop Element ( very basic stuff for my website)
Web easy
Corel Draw 9
Office

I have 1 1920 x 1200 monitor and 2 1620 x 1050 monitor

A single GTX680, you can run 3 displays off of it.

A couple of lower end Nvidia cards, or to simplify, a single ATI card since they have Eyefinity. I would probably go for the latter.

The Radeon 7970 can also do 3 monitor setup. You will need adapters though.

Team Red FTW. LOL!

newer AMD7xxx series cards i believe can run eyefinity over diffrent resolutioned monitors. So since its mainly office apps I'd sugest a Radeon 7750 if not 7770 card.

Your purpose is just to run 3 monitors for desktop applications, and not for gaming?

In that case, most previous generation AMD cards will do the trick.

ASUS 6770

It comes boxed with an HDMI to DVI connector, so all you'll need to get is a VGA to DVI adaptor (they're dirt cheap) and you'll be set to run 3 DVI monitors.

Ah yes....forgot about those. That would do the job for sure. :doh:

this one look nice, I don't really need the VGA to DVI, my third monitor as a VGA connector and I use it only for "Remote Desktop Connection Manager"

I think the 7000 series also has better power management and lower heat. You may want to factor those in. The 7770 looks to be your best bet.

XFX Radeon HD 7770 Double D 1GHz 1GB 4.5GHZ GDDR5 DVI-DL HDMI Minidp PCI-E Video Card - XFX - FX777AZDF4

Here is one from the best of the Radeon makers....XFX.
