Two more questions,

How would i run into an issue with the DVI-D?
Will that videocard work with my current motherboard? (I am removing the GTX 570 so there will be an empty slot)

Mobo will work with the new GPU as long as it's physical measurements work with the case.....it should. I don't know enough about the differences if any between the DVI-I and the DVI-D ports, maybe I'm reading an issue where there won't be one...let's hope!

Yea lets hope it works, really don't wanna spend 50 bucks on a DisplayPort to DVI adapter.

Save up some money and get you 2 1080p monitors and ditch the other ones. No use in spending big money on a video card to run monitors over VGA...

I run 2 23" 1080p monitors off this card and gaming is excellent. It`s a 660 but it`s cheaper.

I`m really tempted to buy the EVGA 760 I linked earlier, I really like the looks of it.

OP, with only 2 monitors, what told you that 570 won't handle a 3rd?

You have a 3rd port, just need the right cables/adapters.

If expecting to game across 3 monitors I would suggest as high a tier as you can, even if it requires waiting to buy, a little while.

My Radeon HD 7950 or Nvidia equivalent or higher recommended.... $250 is getting close....

Use hwcompare.com to see the differences.

I googled around and was told it was impossible, how would i do it then? Could you give me some links to some adapters?

Also, just theoretically, if i wanted to hook up 4 monitors too the EVGA760, how would i do it?

Also i don't have the cash to buy 2 more 1080p monitors, maybe in the future but not now.

I also found out which ports are digital/analog (For the 760), so this means il have to get a display port adapter
Quote:
That GTX760 has four output ports. Three are purely digital (HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI-D) and only one is compatible with digital and analog (DVI-I).

So, this means, only one of the 3 monitors can be an analog monitor (ie monitor having VGA input only).

Thanks for following up, noted.

Don't tease users with 3 ports, as Cartman might say: YOU ...

You would think it would be time for all ports to be digital, you'd think.... but then again, USB 3.0 still isn't widely offered on EVERYTHING DATA related, USB wise: It's improving though.

Oh yeah, and that 760 should be a solid performer for you OP.

Display port wise: ACTIVE cable/adapters, very likely passive if not mentioned and/or cheap.
