    3 output graphics card needed

    Trying to find a low profile pci-express card that supports 3 outputs is driving me made. I did buy one (MSI R5450) and although it's a great card, it only supports 2 outputs at once.

    Can anyone recommend a card that will suit me? Dont mind what combination of outputs as long as there is only one VGA, HDMI, DVI or Displayport are fine.

    I have an ATI Firepro 2450 for sale

    Runs up to 4 screens. Low profile. Special connectors allow it to go to DVI.

Long story short, it does not handle 3, only 2 of the 3 at a time. My machine only supports 2 and once a card has been fitted the on board are disabled.

    I remember seeing your thread about it, I thought you'd already whacked it up on fleabay and sold it.

    That sucks. But, it could be handy for @Danp.

    You still get to sell the card, and he gets what he needs.

    Win/Win.
