Setting up triple TV's
1 1

3 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

I currently run a single toshiba 40" TV and a Playseat F1 as my setup.

I recently got a Sony Bravia 32" TV (Item Code: KDL-32R433B) and have been thinking about buying two more of these screens and making a triple screen setup out of them. I am also upgrading my PC and I plan to get an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Graphics card with an i5 processor. I understand that the 1050 doesn't have 3x DisplayPort's and and even if it did I wouldn't be able to use the TV's as they don't have DisplayPort's. So I understand my only option is to use the 1 HDMI port on the 1050 and use an HDMI Splitter to link up these three screens. Is that ok? Will it affect my experience? Which splitter should I get?

Thanks a lot, any feedback is much appreciated.

Ben

Agree with Killervette.  I'm unsure you'll get satisfactory performance from a GTX 1050.  It's well behind performance/specs of my GTX 970, and the 970 sees challenges with some heavier games on triple 1080p.  But if you want to try, yes it's perfectly fine to use a mix of connections (DVI, HDMI, DP...) to connect multiple displays for nVidia Surround.
