Question  3 monitors support? by Ab


I was just wondering if I could use three monitors with this card, and if so will I need any additional cables?

With thanks,

Answer by gavin on Monday, October 4, 2010
You can use 3 monitors with this card. One of them has to be a DisplayPort monitor though.

buy it now by CooLhandLuke

Bought this card to play BFBC2 and oh boy it rocks!, maxed out the game on everything and the card is still cool and quite , GPUz reports the card to be only using 50% of it's potential , so this card should last you for a couple of years gamming ;).

Question  price increase? by bob

I was going to stop at Aria (whom I have bought all PC parts from for the last 6 years) and purchse this card but put off now as an hour before leaving work to get it the price increased on the website?

Think I may check overclockers or micro direct?
