  Hello to all,

 I am currently running (4) monitors, all are different makes and models. I have them all set at the same resolution.

I have an AMD Radeon HD 5570 video card, with (1) gig of DDR3 memory. I use a i5 - 4670 CPU @ 3.4 Ghz-3401 Mhz with 4 cores, ASUS mother board, and 64 bit system.with 16 GB DDR 3.

 My job requires me to be looking at a computer all day, and I think because of the different monitors my eyes are subject to a lot of undue strain.

 I am going to purchase (4) Veiwsonic VA 2409 wide screen LED monitors, max. resolution of 1980 X 1024.

 My question is will I be able to make use of maximum resolution of monitors with current Video card? I am  using a 4 way VGA connection adapter so I can use all (4) monitors off the (1) Video card. I would use the same set up for new monitors.

Your professional advice would be greatly appreciated.Thank you for your time.

I'd also look at heat and total power required to do all of that.

It looks like that card supports:

 

  • Integrated VGA output
  • Max resolution: 2048x15369

Off of the VGA output so it looks like you should be good to go.
