Hey,

I've current got two widescreen monitors setup and was thinking about going to three or four. My current graphics card can support 3 if I use the display port as one of them, but I can't use the two DVIs and the HDMI for some reason.

I have a SAPPHIRE HD 5770 1GB GDDR5 PCIE. It seems to be a little old, so can't get the same card. I'm looking for a really cheap card I can install which my computer will run using SLI technology? My MB supports it (an ASUS P5N32-E SLI).

How can I tell which graphics card is suitable?

I'm not too bothered about games - mainly just the number of possible monitors and watching good quality movies etc.

Thanks!

Hello krismac

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but only Nvidea video cards can be used in Sli mode, using a pair of AMD cards is called Crossfire and according to your MB details it is not Crossfire capable http://uk.asus.com/M...775/P5N32E_SLI/
