post #11 of 15
If he wants to have more three separate resolutions no he does not need sli he can even run nvidia and ati, but if you want to have one big resolution spread out over 3 monitors sli or crossfire eyefinity is the only way to go

Second card would be your best bet. x4 wouldnt really matter much if you arent gaming. Even then it wouldnt make a HUGE difference

All a DVI Splitter or VGA Splitter will do is clone the same image on multiple monitors. That is not what you need. If you need to run 3 applications on 3 monitors you need a video card with 3 outputs and connect 3 monitors directly to those outputs.

will not work, up until the nvidia 6xx series nvidia cards only support 2 monitors no matter how many jacks.

^^ only 1/2 true, unless its a 6xx nvidia card, no matter how many ports you have you can only hook up 2 monitors. Now this excludes the sli cards such as the 590 or GTX295, because they have 2 cards on them, so 4 screens.
