Windows 7: GTX 560 Non-ti Tri-Monitor

11 Oct 2015   #11

Windows 7 Pro 64-bit

So it appears that I have discovered this:

Startech PCI Express Riser Card x8 to x16 Left Slot Adapter for 1U Servers Model | eBay

It's a killer deal, should I put it in my other pci slot? I don't have 2 x16 slots.

I'll state my specs:

CPU: Core i3 4160 3.60Ghz
RAM: 10GB (1, 8 and 1, 2)
Power Supply: Corsair: CX-600M (600 watt)
OS: Windows 7 Pro 64-bit
Motherboard: Not sure all I know is my computer is a lenovo h50-50.
GPU: Geforce GTX 560 1GB

I have a spare nvidia 8400gs that I'd put in the adapter. The only problem I see occuring is the power supply not giving enough juice.. besides that I'd imagine that everything else would be fine, right?

Or... in order to make it work would I have to have another 560 (the same model as my current)?

What`s your purpose for using the 8400GS ?

You need 2 of the same series cards to use sli, personally I wouldn`t bother with a riser card and another old GPU like that, just buy a new 980 or 980 Ti.

A single 980 or 980 Ti is more then enough. Can`t afford that, get a 960 or 970

How do I access my main monitor if broken in a multi-monitor setup?
I have a setup with 6 monitors. Today my main monitor broke and I couldn't find a way to shut the PC down since I couldn't access the main desktop to get to the Start menu. Is there a way to change which monitor is the main monitor without having access to the current main monitor?
