Gtx 580m or gtx 580. Two completely different things. Can you enable nvidia surround? Where are your monitors plugged in?

For 1x1 you can have different resolutions...

For 1x3 You cannot have different resolutions...

So in English, if you do an independent setup you can have 3 monitors...If you have different resolutions you CANNOT do surround...It's always been that way...Same thing for ATI's...

What I recently did is dropped surround because it was literally, way too much work.

I now have a GTX 590 controlling the center monitor ~ Asus 3d 23" ~ and a 580 doing Physx and controlling the outer 2...Works wonderfully.
