Discovered through trial and error, and also reading a post here) that just because my AMD Radeon R7 200 series has three outputs, does not mean that it supports three monitors. So this leave me with a question: What graphics card can I get, that will support 3 monitors, that is compatible with my MSI A88XM-E45 (MS 7721) motherboard?

Thanks!

What are you using the PC for? Just want to display 3 screens for office work? Or are you gaming on one or more screens?

Don't know if you've heard, but GPU prices and availability are the worst they've probably EVER been.

If your GPU has three outputs, you probably just need an active adapter for one of them. DP, HDMI, and DVI, pick two. But if you get an active display adapter for the DVI port you should be able to run three displays. Something to look into rather than trying to find a GPU at the moment.

Most of the 200-series were two simultaneous outputs, so you are indeed stuck with two-out-of-three outputs with those.

If you have an FM2 APU and your motherboard lets you force the IGP enabled, then you could use the motherboard's DVI or HDMI port. Otherwise, your next cheapest option would be to toss whatever the cheapest GPU you can find in the bottom x16 slot as a secondary GPU if you cannot find a newer triple/quad-output card for a reasonable price to replace your R7-2xx with.
