3 monitor setup - Is my video card ok - Suggestions
I currently have two monitors (32 in. & 27 in.) connected to a GeForce 550 Ti graphics card: EVGA 01G-P3-1556-KR GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) FPB 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card - Newegg.com
This is working nicely without any issues, but I would like to get another 32 in. monitor and wanted to get any advice on a decent video card upgrade OR if my video card will handle 2 large monitors and 1 med. sized monitor. I do see that my card has two DVI ports (1 connected to the 32 in.) and one HDMI port (which is connected to the 27in.); common sense is telling me 3 ports, 3 monitors right? Just wanted to make sure.
I'm not a hard core gamer, but I do play various high level detailed games like Half Life, Call of Duty, etc.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

That would be asking a lot of the 650, but I`m sure it could do it.
I bought this card a month and a half ago and it performed just fine.
But a 4 GB card is really only needed when playing games across 3 monitors. ( is that what you wanna do ? )
But you could seriously consider getting a 770 or higher.
I`m currently running Part Number: 02G-P4-2770-KR and have no complaints yet
