Hi all,

 

I want to extend my desktop from my 32" to my 24", any decent graphics cards with dual HDMI connections? I do a little gaming here and there just to throw that in. Motherboard is a MSI Z87-G41. Budget would be under £100

You can get DVI to HDMI adapters for cheap.  Just another option for you.

Being a Z series MB, you can use the ports on your MB (harnessing the power of the almighty iGPU) to run a second display.  I use my HD3000 to run my two other displays as to not bog the GTX when gaming.

 

A few months ago I upgraded from a GTX 260 to a GTX 760 and the difference is amazing.  All games max at 1920x1080.

 

Check out Tom's Best GPU for the money to see what fits your budget.

When you upgrade again you can get a TITAN Z Quad SLI setup.

It's great, not much of a gamer anymore to use it to its fullest extend - only play CS:S and L4D which run without hiccup. Only needed it for dual monitor setup but I'll be somewhat future proof. Curious about the temps it outputs, will check later, read good things about its power usage too!
