    Hello everyone :)

    I plan to upgrade my system and i want to add 4 monitors but everywhere i read i read so many things and i got confused:/

    I read that you can buy 2 same Cards or you can use the motherboards+the card or take a single card that supports 4 monitors (Huge price)

    I would to know from people who have setup with 3+ monitors to give me some info and help about it.
    I don't need any epic graphics or gaming setup.
    Just more working area :)

    Thanks in advance!

    There are tons of ways to configure it. It really depends on your hardware now and your budget.

    What kind of hardware do you have in your pc now? Graphics card?

    It depends on your budget. Can you give me a price range?

    You can either have dual video cards, a single video card, or a single video card+motherboard video.

    The cheapest the better hehe :)

    I found a card at around 330$ that can support 4 monitors.
    I think if i take 2 cards it will be at the same price on average. And i dont know if i need something special to work with one card+motherboard video :/

    I currently have 6 monitors connected to my pc using an Asus 6950 triple slot card. I am using 2x DVI connections and the rest are connected through active display port adapters and hdmi cables. If you need any assistance feel free to PM me, I can steer you in the right direction.

    I assume it's possible to connect the 4th one as well using another usb adapter so this might be an option for you if lagging is not a big deal (guy describes the lagging part at the end of the video).
