Dual Monitors + Clone TV Help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've recently bought an HD TV and wanting to hook it up to my computer and use it as a mirror to my main monitor. I'm also running a dual monitor setup connected by DVI to my 9800gtx+ but will be upgrading to something with 2 dvi + hdmi (Looking at 6850).

If I go with the 6850, would I need to get a display port adapter to get everything running? Or perhaps using a dvi splitter for the main monitor + tv and keep my current card?

I'm also using ultramon to manage my dual monitors so I could switch between profiles (Main + Secondary and Main + TV) and go without a display port adapter?

Otherwise, any other card suggestions to manage all three? All three screens are on 1920x1080.

Cheers

I think you need all displays to have a display port for the 6850
