CHEAP GPU FOR MULTI-MONITOR

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, the question is easy.

I need a cheap GPU (150€ max) that allows me to use 4 monitor.

No 1080P, the 4 monitor are 1366x768.

I only do presentation and local video streaming, no 3D or heavy programs.

 

I have a Lenovo H50-50, i5-4460, 12GB DDR3 RAM, Corsair CX450M

 

Thanks LTT forum!

New or used? Used you can easily find 50€ options that will more than do the trick new you are looking at double the price. A new gtx 1050 will do used about anything that was midrange.

New or used, I don't care. I already have a GTX 1050 Ti in that system but it only support 3 displays

A gtx 660 would be the cheapest option altho it is no longer getting driver updates. That is a 30-40€ card at max.

A 760 still gets drivers but is about 10€ more expensive.

 

Do make sure you get one with 4 outputs and that you have the neccesary connectors on your screen and or adapters.

 

@narrdarr just made a good suggestion if your computer allows it enable the igpu in the bios togheter with the gpu and get 4 displays that way.

and or adapters.

do take note 20 series GPU (in extension, 16 series) do have issues when using adapters, so it's not recommended really

personally had issue using HDMI->VGA active adapter on 20 series card (it works fine on 900, 10 series, and even rx400 GPU, using it now)

and 2-3 other people on this forum that ranged from intermittently working to not even working entirely.

 

(funny enough, going into CSGO smoke caused 2 individual cases of adapters to stop working, not sure why CSGO smoke though)

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Was going to recommend a couple cards but looked at current pricing wtf is going on with the market. 1030 for 100$. 770 for 130$. I gave away 2x 770 a year again for free.

It's an Intel build run 3 on the gpu and 1 off the igpu.

I already tried it, but I think I haven't installed the iGPU driver.. I have to try it.

If I put a GT 710 (PCI Express x1) and the 1050 Ti (PCI Express X16) it will work without any problem?
