I have a computer-related question and I didn't know where to put so I'm just making a thread for it.
I'm currently running a dual-monitor set-up and I want to add one more monitor, but apparently the graphics card I'm currently running (Geforce GTS 450) can't do three monitors. So I thought I'd add another cheap card and connect my two extra monitors to that, while my main monitor could use the 450.
I'm just a little worried since I've never really tinkered with a computer. Would this actually work, and are there any special things I need to consider?

IIRC, there's nothing stopping you from doing that as long as your motherboard has an unused pcie slot and your PSU can support the extra load.

Couldn't you just hook it up to your motherboard directly and use the onboard video?
>> No.31769  
Not all mobos have onboard video. If he had one, I'd imagine that he wouldn't be asking here.
