I am looking at the GTX 1650 because I want a graphics card that can handle 5 or more displays (one 4k HDMI, and four 1080p DisplayPort).  The 1650 has 3 output connections (one HDMI 2.0 and two DisplayPort 1.4).  The Each Display Port should handle 4 1080 displays. That would mean that the video card should handle 9 displays but the specs state that it will only support 3 displays. Is that a misprint?
 
Also, where do I get the manuals for any of these cards?  The link only has manuals for 1080 and 2080 installation.

    AFAIK, RTX 2070s and higher can handle a max of 4 displays. 
     
    As for the lower line of GPUs like the one you alluded to, there might be some of those external adapters for monitors but I'm not too versed to get into that.

    Maximum digital resolution the card supports is: 7680 x 4320

    Assuming that you can find adapters which function correctly to increase the number of display connectors, it should work.

    I can confirm that the 1650 will only handle 3 displays. Some cards come with a basic installation guide and the manuals we do have available are for hybrid cooler or water block installations on certain models.

    as far as I know, no Nvidia card supports more than 4 monitors from a single card.
     
    I found this in regards to getting a bunch of monitors working at once:
     
    https://hardforum.com/threads/cards-that-support-more-than-4-displays.1700484/
     
    some of the options involve things like display hubs, others involve AMD eyefinity cards.
     
    At the very least, if you want more than 3 displays on that card, it'll need some sort of hub and perhaps software that will make say, 2+ 1080p monitors appear as a 4k monitor. even if the card can put out the needed number of pixels to drive that many displays, connections and software limitations may make that hard at best.
     
    However simplest option is to have 2 cards, provided your motherboard has options for that. If some of those monitors are just going to be used for low stress tasks like web browsing, the second card could be fairly cheap (or both, depending on your needs)

    So JoseR please help me understand this 3 displays only.  Do your DisplayPorts not support more than one display with MST?  I can get 1080p Monitors with DisplayPort V1.2 (like the ViewSonic VP2468) that Daisy Chain up to 4 monitors off of one connection to a DisplayPort on a graphics card.  Are you saying your graphics cards do not support MST 1.2 or 1.4?

    So this is frustrating.  Everyone here is saying that EVGA cards do not support DisplayPort V1.2 or V1.4 MST (Multi-Stream Transport) so I can't utilize the Daisy Chain capability of my ViewSonic VP2468 displays.

    The 1650 does support Display Port 1.4 and you can use an MST hub on the card or daisy chain through the MST on the monitors, however that will still limit the number of monitors to only 3 per card.

    "The 1650 does support Display Port 1.4 and you can use an MST hub on the card or daisy chain through the MST on the monitors, however that will still limit the number of monitors to only 3 per card. "
     
    If it is compatible with Display port 1.4 and MST then I don't understand how it would limit to 3 monitors if I was using Viewsonic VG2449_H2 monitors that daisy chain and support MST.  Where is the limitation? What in the Card limits to 3 monitors? (and now I am looking at the 1660 with 6GB GDDR5 not the 1650).  The 1660 is supposed to support up to 7680 x 4320 digital resolution. This resolution is equivalent to four 4k monitors.
     
    Four 1080 monitors are equivalent to one 4K monitor. If I use four daisy chained monitors like the Viewsonic VG2449_H2 I only use one display port connection to the card.  That would give me four 1080 monitors and use only one connection.  That leaves me 2 more connectors on the 1660 where I could connect more monitors (up to 8 more Viewsonic VG2449_H2).
     
    Please help me understand what limits this card to 3 monitors if it supports MST.
