Am looking at possibly upgrading my current Dell Precision Workstation with this HP H8qe:
which comes with 2 PCIe (x16), 1 PCIe (x4), 1 PCIe (x1) slots.
I am currently running 4 19 inch dell monitors.
My question is this: One of the upgrade options for the graphics card on the H8qe is
2GB DDR3 NVIDIA GeForce GT 530 [DVI, HDMI, VGA adapter]
I talked to tech support and they said that if I used an adaptor on one of my 4 screens to fit the HDMI and a splitter on the DVI I can fit all 4 screens on the card above.
Is that a good idea? Or would that tax the card and cause overheating/noise? My workstation is noisy and pretty annoying.
Also, could I get a less pricey model (one of the home pavilions) instead and find a way to run 4 monitors on them?
Thanks for any pointers/ideas.
