    Second Monitor on a R7 240 Video Card

    Hi All

    If I was to invest in a Second Monitor, would it work ok with current graphics card I have, AMD Radeon R7 240, or should I wait on adding a second monitor til I get my Rx 470 or 570 graphics card in the way future (money wise not gonna have enough for a while on that aspect). Monitor wanted to use is 1280x1024, think DVI-D and VGA options on it,

    Second Monitor would be used for Streaming Shows, and that aspect of things if worked well, though I may wait and just get another wide screen 20-23 inch in the future, and a different desk so I can have both monitors on one desk

    There should be 3 connectors at the back, VGA, DVI, HDMI so you can use up to 3 monitors providing they have some of those connections.

    Just keep your eye on the card temp, the more monitors you add the harder the card has to work.
