I had a quick look around for a low cost card with three display ports. I could not find one. They seem to be performance oriented. Any suggestions?

Maybe I should check hdmi.

Just got an AMD FirePro W4100 for $299:

4x MiniDP however if you're connecting to MiniDP to VGA or DVI then at least 2x of those adaptors must be "active" ones (as opposed to "passive" ones).

Actually still have my old ATI FirePro 2460 which suspiciously stopped working during upgrade to Windows 10 (after 2nd reboot BIOS would not POST without removing it).


70% sure it's hardware faulty however don't have another box to test it so you can have it if you want to give it a try....


Pickup from Henderson or send me a courier bag.

I'll politely decline, as I've previously fried my brain with misbehaving graphics cards. I appreciate the offer it's just a time thing.

a 960 or 970 will do it. They arent really on the used market much yet, but if you can find one would be great, actually useful performance and 3DP/Hdmi2.0 on most of them which can give you a quad head 4k setup.
