need help on doing 3 monitors

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi. I currently use an LG L227WTG 22inch 1680x1050 monitor, it's not LED backlit and I'm thinking about getting 2 monitors for gaming WoW. I don't know if IPS are good for the price, but this are my choice..

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824005230

maybe get 1 that is not IPS so it would be cheaper. but I don't know if the setup would be nice.

it would be, OLD MONITOR (not LED)---IPS---LED MONITOR

but, the 2 monitors I would be getting are 1920x1080. So my problem is my current only do 1680x1050 and the new ones 1920x1080. would they be compatible?

Thanks!

In extended mode (gaming on one display only, the other displays are there just for extended dekstop space) it will work.


In eyefinity mode, all monitors will be set to the 1680x1050, since that's the highest resolution all monitors can do.

In nVidia surround mode, there's a huge chance that they won't even work in surround

aw. Can I do nvidia 2D surround with just 1 gtx 570? and if it won't work, why? because the 2 are 1920x1080?

nVidia surround requires the same sync polarity for each display. If, for some reason, the ismatched monitors don't have the same sync polarities, they will not function properly.
