Best GPU or pre-built desktop for 3 monitors non-gaming ?

or desktop setup for 3 monitors.
Looking for a not crazy expensive build for triple monitor 4k setup (or two 1080p and one 4K) ..

Mainly office work, youtube, videos, etc.

I am no longer a gamer but want a PC that might be able to handle the upcoming Diablo 4.


Any ideas?

Nvidia quadro p620.
Running 38in, 43in 4k, 32in 4k off it.
It was crashing until I added more ram to the system.

I have one in my other desktop that I got from the manufacturer pny and the new lenovo desktop I got with the card.

I don't game. Not even sure if solitaire is installed lol...

Paid 290, can be had for a bit less. I needed low profile

Get any GPU. They all will support at-least 3 monitors. Had you posted a few days ago, I have an cheap ATI/AMD GPU for sale for $30 that does 4 displays. Someones coming to pick it up today tho.

You even get USB to Display adapters on Amazon etc

Urm. They can't all push 4k lol. And definitely very few can push simultaneous 4k to multiple monitors.

Maybe not ones that came out 10 years ago. Anything with a DP can do 4K, and the other ports will handle 1080p with ease. I used my $30 ATI to drive a 4K display and it worked great. Driver support is not too great for that card in MacOS, but it is fine otherwise.

EDIT: Just saw that the OP wanted to drive 3 4K displays. For that you will need a modern-ish card as HDMI1.4 only does 4K@30Hz. HDMI2.0 does 4K@60Hz and so you will need a card that has an HDMI 2.0 Port. For 3x 4K Monitors, you'll need something with at-least 3 ports capable of the 4K res. I.E 3x DP or 2 DP & HDMI, etc

There's also a Quadro P400 out there.. have seen them for less than $200 before, they come with 3 mini displayport outputs. However, gaming wise it would perform worse than or equal to a vanilla GTX1050.... It'll be anyone's guess what Diablo 4's requirements will be or when it'll be coming out even. So plan for some wiggle room in performance if you intend on keeping the card for a long time. Other option would be a Low-mid range card like the 1050/1060/1650/1660/RX570/580/5500/5600, Just take a look at the port availability of the model first. Some of the higher end models will have multiple Displayports and HDMIs that'll work for your intended setup.
