    Inexpensive Three Monitor Graphics Card That Works With W10?


    I work in a mortgage office and the boss would like to have three monitors for certain people to improve productivity.

    Anyway I did some research and found that a number of people were surprised that cards they had did not work with Windows 10.

    Anyone know of lower end video card that will work with Windows 10 and support three monitors for business use? Don't need a gaming card.

    All AMD R7 2xx series cards can do that.

    Well, you need at least 3 x DVI/HDMI/Display Port outputs (depending on monitors inputs) and super cheap ones don't have all of them. Which kinds of monitors are you going to use ?

    I have three monitors, one is VGA only, the rest have the other connections. If anyone has a link to a website with a specific card I would appreciate it.

    How much is your budget for each graphics card? You can barely find any entry-level graphics card that will have no analog display.

    I am just researching for the boss. If it is too much, then the employees will have to deal with two monitors. If anyone has a link to a website with a specific card I would appreciate it.

    I have an NVidia GT 640 running three screens on my main desktop PC. Mini HDMI, DVI, DVI. I'm pretty sure the GT 610 in my backup desktop PC will do it too.

    The GT 640 looked good but is out of stock on all the places I looked.

    You aren't gonna find a large quantity if any at all of a card that old, they are no longer produced. I am almost positive the 710-740 are also impossible to find now, online retailers do not carry them anymore. Finally, if a 50-60$ GPU is "too expensive" you are asking for the impossible.

    The best you are going to be able to do is probably an R7 240 or a GTX 750. To that end, in order to drive 3 monitors, you must have a display port on the GPU. You can only use 2 of the HDMI/DVI/VGA ports together, the 3rd must come from a display port. That being said, this is probably your best bet:

    MSI Radeon R7 240 DirectX 11.2 R7 240 2GD5 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card - Newegg.com

    It also depends on how many you need. Since you are looking to order a bunch you may get a discount depending on where you buy, what you buy, and how many you buy. Letting us know a rough estimate would be helpful, but I assume not that many since if it was a big company they would have someone in the know on these things.
