OMG I never dreamed I'd be looking at 1k for three 4k low end monitors!   Can't imagine there being that much better experience than the three I have.

I said cheapest video card just to emphasize that I don't feel that component is really important for your use case. It would of course need to be a somewhat capable card to support at least 3 monitors.

 

If your thinking of mail order name brand boxed systems here is one I would probably go with.

A hair more than the one you listed, but comes with a 256GB SSD additional drive.

 

Ha, no I didn't think to look at Walmart. I'll follow your link and see what they have there.

I followed your Walmart link and agree they have some good prices there.

 

The closest simular box I could find there was this one. The CPU is slightly less, but unless you are able to really load it heavily you probably would not notice much difference.

If name brand and future resale value is not that important to you, then I would probably go with the Walmart one to save a few hundred dollars. Also you might be able to find one locally on display to look at and take for a test drive.

I didn't catch that difference, but I would take the 256GB SSD over slightly faster memory for sure.

Thanks,

 

I am going to put the information in at benchmark.com to see the specs and price to build.  Guess thats what it comes down to.

But I will say I will be sticking with my two older mnitors and buying another lower quality. I can see no use in payng a grand for the monitor set up.
