    Single width Graphics cards

    Hi team,

    I currently am using an Asrock M3A770de mobo. I currently have 2 dsub and 2 dvi monitors plugged into dual nvidia geforce 9500gt cards on my win8 64bit pc.

    My Question
    I am looking for (probably) a pair of single width medium/high spec graphics cards which will allow me to plug in my 4 existing monitors, but the crucial part is that they occupy SINGLE SLOTS rather than overflow into DOUBLE slots of the mobo.

    My primary pc use is running cubase 7 across the 4 monitors.

    Thanks for looking

    I was looking for a single slot replacement for my 9800 GT and found the Nvidia GTX 650. It's been working very well for me. PNY NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 2GB GDDR5 2DVI Mini HDMI PCI-Express Video Card VCGGTX650XPB: Computers & Accessories

    They won't accommodate d-sub monitors

    This would have been ideal but according to the gforce site, this card has dvi- and dvi-d connections. I need a d-sub connection as i have a pair of dsub optiquest 24" monitors that need to be in the mix somehow.

    Thank you for letting me know.

    Have you tried these yourself?

    This sounds like just the solution I need. Have you tried these yourself? Can I just put this in between my dsub monitor and this graphics card and off i go, or do I need to do any sort of configuration?

    Thank you.
