No can do bru. I've tried it on my 580. I was bummed too! I thought it'd be perfect to have 2 monitors, 1 gaming, 1 desktop, 1 TV for news and such...nope...only 2 monitors work

Yes you can run the main screen off the 580 and the 2 others from the 450.

FFS NVIDIA YOU ASSHAT!! why give the card that much power and not be able to use it!!!

I know you can do 2 just fine..Never did try 3...

try to throw that 450 in...because I know you can run a 450 and 580 together just fine (for folding purposes), however not sure if you can get a display out of a secondary card..
