Selling my r290 soon because I don’t really have time for gaming these days. Also it takes up too many PCIe lanes for work related reasons, I had to pry the 1080 out of my newegg cart many times.
I’m looking for a lower tier card with stable drivers. I’d also like it to be pretty silent, not sure if a fan is necessary. Lastly, a minimum of 3 simultaneous display ports is crucial, I’ve heard of some cards providing 3 but only 2 work at the same time.
question - Does the amount of VRAM or processing power matter with multiple monitors and video playback? The 1gb cards are pretty cheap at newegg
Samsung LED 39" 1080p
Soundcard: RME hammerfall
mobo: GA UD5 x79
ram: 1600mz gskill 64gb
OS: Windows 7 ultimate
PSU: Silencer Pro 1000w
My price range is under $60, the more outputs the better but I know anything below $150 won’t have more than just 3. I’d also like it to work on newer chipsets like Haswell.
