Until the prices come down I bought a GTX-960 4GB to tide me over. I've built the new system with a TUF x570 plus wi-fi, with the requisite Ryzen 7-3700x, an EVGA 650 GR (gold), a couple of M.2 half TB NVME drives, and that's as far as I've gotten. I'd like to add a super- or ultrawide monitor, and was wondering if the GTX-960 can drive it for just ordinary desktop stuff until I can upgrade it... That should NOT be a problem, right? I used to have three screens (I'm a writer) with a document or two open, communication programmes, and reference materials, they all ran on my onboard video plus a Radeon HD 4570 to drive the third one. I'd also like to use another of the 960's ports (DP, DVI, HDMI) to drive a 1068 x 1280 monitor (portrait mode) that I use to keep full pages of documents visible while working... I was thinking of an AOC CQ32G2S 32" Curved Monitor 2K QHD, 1500R Curved VA, 1ms, 165Hz, with FreeSync. I don't really need 4K for anything... Will that work?

The 960 will drive those screens for you for normal use.
Depending on the variant it my support all three.
What model did you get?
I can give you specs… It’s an SZMZ GeForce GTX960 (PCIe 3.0 in the 16x slot), has a double fan, 4GB of GDDR5 with a 128 bit Mem interface, with the (real) NVIDIA chipset (only 14 nm, yeah it’s older yadda, yadda, yadda), MemClock is 7000MHz, with DVI, HDMI (1.2), and DP outputs, a core clock speed of 1253 MHz, supports DirectX 12, and sports a 6-pin power connector… I don’t really know what else to tell you except it can use GURU II OC software, supports PhysX, NVIDIA Boost 2.0 and has a max res of 4096x2160… Does that help?

pretty much it, the driver will auto drive the screen without problem
