Hi, I am new to computer building in general, but I have recently finished building my first computer.
I was wondering I have a single MSI N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II/OC video card. Is it possible to connect triple monitors to just that one card?
If I can connect 3, which 3 monitors do you guys/girls suggest for minimum price/maximum quality?
in portrait mode also~

Thanks~ :)
 
going with nVidia it's "2D/3D surround" going with AMD it's "Eyefinity"
a single AMD HD 6K/7K GPU supports up to 4 monitors.
you need to SLI the GTX 560Ti in order to support 3 monitors.

i always recommend 3-way CF for Eyefinity, and in order to enjoy gaming at high resolution and high FPS you need to SLI GTX 580s

How come on this webpage http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0355794 under SPECS it says support up to 3 monitors?

thanks for the webpage, but im kind of new to this so dont know how to read it.
can u look at the page i post again you have to click SPECS
 
i clicked specs, in the specifications table it's 3D: yes no 3D monitors support, and the link i provided shows the GPUs that are capable of running 3 monitors.
the GTX 295, 590 can run it without SLI becasue they are dual GPUs, the rest GPUs beging from GTX 460 (you need 2 × GTX 460).
begining from GTX 260 you need 3-way SLI (3 × GTX 260)
a single GTX 460 or 560Ti supports only 2 monitors, you need to SLI the GTX 560Ti to hook up 3rd monitor

ahh ok thanks~ i think im starting to understand, so even in NON 3D mode i still need another card to hook up the 3rd monitor?

If I want 3 monitor setup do you think I should return my card (bought card for 250) and get a multi-GPU or get another one of the same card which way is minimize the cost/maximum the gain? thanks~

What if not necessarily always gaming sometimes just for more productivity like opening more documents or programs on more than just one monitor?
 

the HD 6950 has 2 DVIs, 2 Mini DisplayPorts, 1 HDMI
you connect the third monitor via a DisplayPort To DVI adapter
