Hello,

I built the below "File Server PC" in 2012 and was using integrated graphics on it. Sadly, my gaming PC was built in 2011 and I'd like to upgrade but don't have the money so I've decided to buy a GPU to put in my "File Server PC" and use that to do some gaming.

I was looking at the below GPU to go with the "File Server PC" components below. I haven't built a PC though since 2012 and I know some things have changed. Does anyone happen to see any issues with that current setup? I believe that GPU will be powerful enough to run the below 3 monitors, as well as be compatible with the motherboard and PSU.

Could anyone offer any advice? Hoping I'm not overlooking anything.

Hm... the question which comes to mind is what are you expecting of a three monitor set up? If it's to game then I would think a more powerful graphics card is better suited. For example, the GTX 1060s are better for 1080p gaming and the new GTX 1660 ti is certainly good. The system is still fairly capable (dependent on expectations again).
