I'm building a custom AMD-based desktop computer. I need to connect 3 monitors to it. It is for office use, not for gaming, so I'd like to keep the cost of the graphics card down as much as possible.
1) What video card / hardware should I get for this computer so that it supports 3 monitors? Anything special on the motherboard I need to be concerned about?
2) Can you use the onboard graphics on the motherboard in at the same time as a discrete graphics card, in order to get support for 3 monitors? Does this actually work?
For Q2... please only answer if you are *sure* - if you've actually done it before. There seems to be mixed opinions on the Internet and my personal experience has always been that the onboard graphics are disabled when a discrete card is present.
Thanks for the insights.
