  • GPU Recommendation - Budget Dual Screen

    Hey everyone, I am looking to help a friend expand his PC out to be able to support dual monitors. So I am looking for some GPU recommendations.

    Below is the PC we put together for him:


    Usage: Internet Browsing, Forums, Watching Videos, Fusion 360, Photo Editing (No Gaming).

    Ideally looking for something that is sub-100 and really ideal if it is passive cooled to keep it quiet.

    Thank you

    if it's purely just to run 2 screens with no gaming, any low end card will suffice IE GTX610 Should be able to pick up a 2nd hand one for under 30 easily
    I am not losing weight! I'm getting rid of it. I have no intention of finding it again!

      idk if it is too late to change the build?

      as from what i was reading that platform will never receive a fix for the spectre/meltdown bug/vulnerability but also as some cpu/motherboard combo will output dual screens without the need for an add in card.

        We made this PC nearly 2 years ago now. Just looking for a way to expand the monitors now.

          Even onboard graphics should support 2 screens? I think i'm using the HDMI and DVI output of one of my office PC's.

            true - if you don't mind a little bit of screen tearing when scrolling in a web browser .....

              The board listed is HDMI only...

                Can't say i have noticed to be honest. It's only used for processing orders so no complaints.

                Oh, well this will be a problem...

                  then, as wonder said, any add in gpu will really fit your needs. you might find it works out best if you use the card for both screens as running 1 off the gpu and the other from the igp can cause issues.
