I'm quite new to pc building. I'd like to seek advises about building a computer which can support up to 3 or 4 monitors, and as cheap as possible. I went to few pc shops, some recommend me to get GTX 1050ti while others recommend me to get GTX1060. So i'm confused now.

Purpose of the computer
- Screen 1 for main screen controls (Monitor)
- Screen 2 to display videos or image etc (Projector)
- Screen 3 to display theme text or title (Monitor)
- Screen 4 backup (Monitor)
All displays will be in HD (1080).

- Build based on Intel Processor
- Both Nvidia and AMD graphic are acceptable as long as it can support the function mentioned above (as well as other parts; Motherboard, ram etc.)

Please let me know if you need further details.

  • technically both types of card can do the job, the more interesting question is whether any concrete model has the right number of ports (which will usually be 3x DisplayPort + 1x HDMI). – SEJPM Oct 9 '17 at 8:59
  • @SEJPM Thanks. How about combine the ports on motherboard with the ports on gpu? Will that work? – Gilbert N. Oct 10 '17 at 7:09
  • If you plug into the integrated GPU (motherboard DVI output), you likely won't be able to use the discreet GPU as well. Best bet is to just daisy-chain the DisplayPort connection. – spikey_richie Oct 13 '17 at 10:56
  • @spikey_richie Thanks. I'll look into it. I just realized that i didn't mention that one of the display will be a projector. – Gilbert N. Oct 18 '17 at 0:40
