Hi Guys,

All GeForce cards only support at most 2 monitors. If you want to drive 3 monitors, you need a second card.

I have 3 graphic cards in 3 pci-e slots. want 9 monitors connected, so each card must support at least 3 monitors,

so what kind of Nvidia graphic card can support at least 3 monitors with the lowest expense.

Thanks

You would need Quadro - and they're mighty expensive.

maybe you would like to try ATI?

Hey all,

I'm a retail sales associate and I was attempting to help a gentleman purchase a graphics card today. Specifically, the gentleman was interested in a $60.00 price point graphics card, the GeForce GT210, which I am aware is capable of projecting to two monitors simultaneously - however, the gentleman was interested in one card that supports three monitors simultaneously. I reviewed this thread briefly, but it seems to me that no certain concensus was reached as to whether one GT210 definitely can or can not support three computer monitors simultaneously or not.

Any help would be appreciated and thanks in advance!

Even if you could do it with a 210, the card would probably fail fairly quick. Get too hot, and use to much power.

Need to look at cards designed to run 3 monitors. Or use 2 cards on a pc that can run multiple cards.

The 210 does not support 3 monitor at the same time, any combination of 2 can be used at the same time.

If you had bothered to read the box or description/specifications before buying it, you would have known that, yes, the card only supports 2 displays at the most, at one time. It is not possible to use all 3 ports at once. If you want a card that supports 3 monitors simultaneously, you'll need to pick up a GTX 590, as it's the only card capable of running 3 monitors at once available from NVidia (at least in the gaming sector of cards).
