Running dual monitor on gtx 680.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I need some help clarifying regarding running dual monitor on gtx 680.

I am planning to run dual monitor, one for gaming, and other one for browsing and such.

Gtx 680 has both dvi d and dvi I connector

Pic : Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

So in order to run dual, do I simply just plug both monitor to both dvi port?

Also since ports are dvi I and dvi D, I would have to get dvi d cable separately right? (I do have dvi to vga adapter) but it won't fit into dvi d slot because it is dvi I)

I heard dvi i both transmit analog and digital whereas dvi D only transmit digital? I am running a lg 23' lcd tv. So that is consider digital signal?

Sorry for long list of questions. Questions may seem a bit confusing. Ask me and I will be happy to clarify it.

Yes, just plug in the cables to the DVI ports, that will be fine.

Yes, you will need a new cable to fit in the older stile DVI-I.

And, yes, your LCD tv is digital.
