Hi, my current setup is -
Asus B450 Prime Plus
Ryzen 5 2600X
16GB RAM

ROG-STRIX-RX560-4G-GAMING

I start off with 3x AOC G2590VXQ (1920x1080)
Last year I updated my centre screen with an AOC 34G2 (3440x1440)

This Black Friday I bought 2xLenovo G27Q-20 (2560x1440) to replace the two AOC G2590VXQ's.
Will the card cope with this?

I was thinking that if there was an issue I might upgrade the cpu to a Ryzen 5 5600G. I'd run the AOC 34G2 off that and the two G27Q-20's off the RX560.

All thoughts/ideas welcome, thanks.

You forgot to include the make and model of the PSU and it's age in your system's specs. If you're looking at real estate space, the GPU will handle them all. If you're looking for gaming then it'll struggle.

You might want to bring yourself up to speed, if you use a discrete GPU in your AMD build, the iGPU in the APU gets disabled, so you won't get display out from the motherboard, which is what you'd see on an Intel platform(and how multimonitor setups have been done for the past decade).

Hi, the psu is an iCHOOSE A-700BR and nearly 2.5 years old. Hopefully not too old.

I'm obviously out of date with APUs plus discrete GPUs.
My previous build, which this one replaced, had an APU that did accept a discrete GPU.

I'm what you might call a casual gamer. Currently the only game I'm playing is Snowrunner. I'm not into tense, stressful "shoot 'em ups" or frantic car racing.

For now I'll swap in the G27Q-20's and see if Snowrunner's performance deteriorates. If it does I might twist the wife's arm to buy me a AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB for Christmas. it looks good value for money for what I want.

Sadly the ROG-STRIX-RX560-4G-GAMING doesn't seem to want to provide max resolution for all three screens:(
I can get the AOC 34G2 at 3440x1440 plus one other of the Lenovo G27Q-20's at 2560x1440. The second one will only go to 1920x1080:mad: (Doesn't matter which actual monitor I select).

Looks like I'll have to upgrade the GPU. At least Snowrunner runs okay on the big screen:)
Do you think the AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB will be a good choice? I don't want spend loads of dosh.

BTW - thanks for the advice re. the PSU.
