New Build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Good Day, Everyone!

 

I recently upgraded my PC aside from my PSU, my pheriperals (mouse, keyboard, monitor and speakers) and some of my hard drives. Below are the new specs:

 

CPU: Intel i5-8400

RAM: 16GB G.Skill DDR4 2400hz

GPU: Palit GeForce 1070ti Dual

SSD: Samsung EVO 250GB

HDD: Seagate 3TB + 2 existing Seagate 1TB

PSU: Corsair 450w

MB: Gigabyte Gaming (forgot the exact unit)

Monitor: LG E2442 - I know this one needs an upgrade as well. Soon!

 

My question is, can it handle a triple monitor setup at 1080p? (I don't have a lot of Ultra or Quad HD content so 1080p works fine for me.)

 

Or do you suggest getting a single ultrawide monitor instead?

 

I mainly use it for content consumption, photo editing and a little bit of gaming.

It will support resolution up to 7680x4320@60Hz. You're fine as long the card has enough display Connectors.

A nice ultrawide is eye candy for anyone, but they're expensive. Your GPU can definitely support 3 1080p monitors.

only thing i worry about is that 450w psu. it sure is enough, but some headroom wont hurt with such pricy components. as for your question, yes 3x 1080p will work just fine. a 1070ti can drive 4k quite well, wich is 4x 1080p when looking at the amount of pixels. you may want to look up triple monitor support for your games tho
