Usually I'm one of the guys giving advice here, but this time I'm looking for some input to come to a good decision.

 

My current video card is getting a bit outdated. It's a GeForce GTX 960 with 2 GB GDDR5 memory (ASUS GTX 960 Mini OC). Not much special these days. One disadvantage is that it only has one DVI output, so technically only one monitor can be connected to it. However I have three monitors and use a Matrox Triplehead2Go Digital Edition to connect them all to my system.

 

And while it's all still functional, I'm thinking about updating. A better videocard on which all three monitors can be directly connected, abolishing the need for the TripleHead2Go. This is mainly due to the drivers and software for the TripleHead2Go getting outdated (they're not updated anymore) and slowing down the system.

 

The video card I got my eyes on is the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 Mini OTX OC 6G. It comes with three DisplayPort connectors, so all three monitors can be directly connected (although I will need adapter plugs since the monitors can only be connected through DVI, they don't have a DisplayPort connection).

 

For details, this is the card I'm eyeing.

But before I make my purchase, I'd like to hear what others think.

 

By the way, the rest of my system looks as follows:

 

Motherboard: ASUS TUF X299 Mark 2

CPU: Intel Core i7-7800X

Memory: 32 GB DDR4-2132 / PC4-17000 (2x 16 GB)

Drives: 1x Kingston SKC1000960G NVMe 960 GB (for Windows and other applications), 1x Samsung SSD 840 EVO 750 GB (for P3D v4) and 1x Toshiba DT01ACA300 3 TB 7200 RPM HDD (for storage)

Optical drive: Plextor BD-R PX-B950SA

 

Any thoughts?
