Windows 7: 3 Screen set up, Help needed!!

3 Screen set up, Help needed!!

Hello all,

I am new to posting on the forum, but have been browsing for a while and have always found a solution to any problems I have come across. This time, I am unsure of what I need.

I am currently in the process of building a 3 screen desktop to create an exhibition for a project at University. Basically we want to run 3 projectors as one large desktop.
I have tried searching the forums but am unable to find an answer, and wanted to make sure before i start spending money.

What I want to know is, will I be able to get another graphics card and run both? If so, does it matter what type? If someone can recommend a graphics card to me, I am hoping to go for the cheapest option, being a student!! :)

I appreciate any help you can give me.

You can get any other Geforce card to use for second monitors, so you could get a pretty cheap one, like a Geforce G210 or something, and just connect a 3rd display to it.

It will need to be a card that uses the same drivers as your 9500 though, or else your PC won't detect the second one.
