How to make games play on dual monitors

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I recently just bought two 24" asus led hd monitors and connected them properly to the computer. I can drag programs across screens but when I open games it will only run on one screen, and it does not give any options to increase resolution past 1920x1080. Also in the nvidia control panel the second monitor says it is connected by a composite cable even though I hooked up both monitors into the dvi sockets in the graphics card. The nvidia card is a gtx 275. Any help or suggestions on how to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated. And the games that I would like to run on 2 monitors does support it, like WoW.

Try looking into Nvidia 3D surround (I think that's the Nvidia equivalent to eyefinity)
Here's a link with compatible hardware:

Hope this helps

Any game on dual monitors is pretty much crap. The center of the display area is divided by a bezel.

Cipher, nvidia surround is the equivalent of eyefinity. 3D surround is like eyefinity + 3D combined.


If you want to game on multiple monitors, 3 is recommended.

Thanks De-Zant, wasn't sure.
That would be awesome by the way, 3 screen gaming plus 3D
