Base system specs right now:
i7 930 2.8GHz
18GB DDR3 RAM
GTX 460 1GB
3 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (x16, x8, x8 or x16, x16, x1)
I recently acquired a third monitor. My GTX 460 only supports two monitors. Gaming on three monitors would be nice, but I'm on a budget, so for now, I'd just like to be able to game on my center monitor but have other things open on my side monitors.
What GPU should I buy to allow me to use the third monitor? And should I then have my center monitor plugged into the GTX 460 and put the other two monitors on my second card or put only one monitor on the second card?
Here are two I'm considering:
$31.99 - EVGA 01G-P3-1312-LR GeForce 210 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP
$34.86 - ASUS GeForce 210 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Low Profile Ready Video Card, EN210 SILENT/DI/1GD3/V2(LP)
Would either of those be adequate?
Bonus question: If I wanted to game across all three monitors at 1920x1080 and 30 fps minimum, what's the minimum I'd have to spend? And would I be better off with a single GPU or two?--
