Hi there,

I currently have a

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC Low Profile 4GB Graphics Card with 4 outputs.

I am wanting to know if I can add a second and output to 8 monitors on windows 10.

I will not be using it for gaming, just work office apps etc.

my motherboard is as rock z97 extreme 6.

I have a m.2 ssd using 4x pci lanes too if this will effect anything.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

Yes if the card can output to 4, adding a second with the same capability will give you 8.

There are some cards specifically designed for a large amount of displays for business purposes

Maxtor is a good company to look at if you want a dedicated card for multi monitor support.

If the 1050Ti you have has the connections you need and is fine with 4 screens then you can use that and it will be faster than the other cards I linked, and probably cheaper.
