Windows 7: Need new graphics card for 3 monitor setup

Need new graphics card for 3 monitor setup

I'm pretty sure it's been narrowed down to my graphics card being bad from the following post: BSOD - Random - Usually When Playing Video

So, I guess I need to buy a new one. Any advice? I currently have two 17" Dell 1280x1024 LCD monitors and a 40" Sony 1920x1080 LCD TV hooked up for watching movies/tv shows. My current card is in my system specs. I just want to be capable of standard tasks on the two 17's and 1080p video on the 40 at the cheapest possible.

Thanks

I recommend anything made by EVGA, preferably something in the 700 or 900 series.

A 750 Ti would be a great choice.

That looks like a great one but I'd really prefer to be under $100. I basically want the minimum to do what I want to do. No gaming at all. Just standard tasks and video. How would I find the make/model of the power supply?

I've had this computer for 6 years with no upgrades/replacements by the way.

You can search the EVGA site for any card in your price range.

The power supply is Delta GPS-400BB A.

So, any of the <$50 cards on the EVGA site are more than capable of 3 monitors and HD video?

I don`t know about that, you`d have to read the specs on each card you look at.

Research, research, research

Is this the PSU ?

YeongYang - GPS-400BB-A ATX 12V Switch Power Supply - Professional manufacturer of computer case

If so, you only have 1 6 pin pci-E power cable to work with to plug into any card you buy, but a lot of cards do not need to be powered, they get the power from the motherboard.
