Question about GTX 570 and dual displays

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've recently ordered my first gaming rig, including a EVGA GTX 570. I plan to use dual displays, with cpu/gpu temp, other info on a secondary display and use the main display for gaming.

Sorry if this is a newb question, but can the GTX 570 render both the game on the primary display and keep up with the secondary display as well?

Also, do the 2 screens have to be in the same resolution? I already 24" 16:9 TN display and looking into a another 24" IPS display, but the one I'm interested in is current a 16:10, will that still work?

AFAIK that card can handle two monitors...hence why it has multiple output ports.

Yes. A second monitor really doesn't add much if anything to usage, unless your running something like flash on the other screen.
