I have looked at the NVS 310 with 2 x DP outputs too.

Thing is the onboard graphics score better than that card itself. So what benefit would a low level card have for me?
No one here recommended getting a low level card, we gave you suggestions.

2 identical monitors should look exactly the same, no matter the source

All seriousness aside, the worst computer speakers sound better than the best built-in monitor speakers (and one can always get even better speakers than the worst computer speakers). I have never used built-in monitor speakers. I would never let something like sound keep me from using more monitors when the extra monitors make life so much easier, especially when it is so easy to get better audio anyway.
no, my speakers wre made by a fine finnish company called genelec and cost as much as a kidney in some countries.
I added the term audio to make it clear i'm kinda changing the subject.[/QUOTE]

Lessee. I wear trifocals. Nope, vision is already gone.

I'm sorry, since were were discussing monitors, I put two and two together and got 3.7...er...I assumed that that the speakers were from the monitors. Separate speakers can be put on a desktop under monitors or hung over the monitors, either on the wall or from the upper part of a monitor stand. My audio speakers are 6 1/2 feet apart but that's so I get better stereo separation when listening to them in bed. It's a bit wide when I'm at my desk but I'm usually just playing background music then.

all good. what we're looking for is a ~60 angle between speakers, regardless of distance.

Mobo's that can drive 3 monitors are not uncommon. One of my machines has an i3-4130 in a MSI B85M-E45, and the board has HDMI, VGA and DVI-D. Although I don't use it in that configuration, I have tested it with 3 HD screens and 3 HD streams/videos and it wasn't overstretched. Not bad for a budget system. See snip from mobo manual
