I'm currently running dual monitors but would like to use 3 monitors as my screen real estate is becoming limited. I cant install another graphics card without replacing my motherboard as there isn't another slot for one and I don't want to install a new motherboard really as I'm not that confident doing that type of things.
Can anybody recommend a good graphics card that will support 3 monitors? By the way I'm not interested in gaming or having the system class it as a single monitor or anything like that. Just need 3 monitor supports my current card doesn't.
Thanks Guys Woody

If you don't care about gaming or graphics performance then I would check out the AMD HD 5670 or HD 5750.. Those cards a very cheap and support Eyefinity for 3 monitors.. If you want 3 monitors and a better yet cheap graphics card I would check out the 6850 or something like that. Although they support 3 monitors, you have to use one of them with the Display Port or you can buy an active Display Port to DVI converter

Im currently using an hdmi and dvi port of my graphics card . There is a vga port of my graphic card spare but if anything is plugged into it it just say it cant support more than 2 monitors so i will lose one of my others.
From what i have read i cant have both the graphics card and on the on-board vga port enables?
So i thought the best way would be to get a card that supports 3 monitors as standard

look for the USB to VGA devices all over ebay and amazon some even support dual monitors so you could get 2 more output added for using just a usb port. they arent the fastest but they work well for what they are. expect to pay $65 USD for a single output usb to VGA device.
