Help with nvidia surround

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys my rig is in my sig and right now I actually have one Acer S232HL 23" monitor. I want to buy two more to have a triple monitor setup and also do eyefinity.

It it possible to set this up with the one graphics card I have? If so ... how? I read suggestions of using this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814999034&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-RSSDailyDeals-_-na-_-na&AID=10521304&PID=4003003&SID=pgpjg8gmf0ck
but how does this work if the monitors don't have a display port?

To be able to run Eyefinity,first of all you need to have an AMD Graphic Card.

Your sig rig have Evga Gtx 460 1gb (NVIDIA).

You can add another GTX 460 and try NVIDIA Surround (2D)

Also 460 1GB doesn't have enough Vram, you want ablest 2GB for surround.

Yeah i meant surround... sorry. and ok so if i got another 460 1gb would that be enough? I might also just buy a new better video card.
IF I am not using nvidia surround for games but just want three monitors is it possible to have all three plugged into the one gtx 460? two dvi and one hdmi..

Adding another 460 in SLI doesn't give you an extra gig of memory as its mirrored. You would still have 1GB of usable Vram. While it will still work almost any modern game will be held back by the 1GB of Vram. For surround gaming I usually recommend atleast 2GB cards.
