Doing Upgrade - have GTX680 - Need more!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi There!

I am about to replace my i7 920 and P6T Deluxe with a i7 4770K and Asus Z87-Pro. I have a GTX 680 I was going to move. I have 3 Korean 2560x1440 Monitors, 2 connected to the DVI and 1 to the HDMI (Which has died so it looks like it is horizontally compressed). I am trying to find out if it's possible to use the GTX680 AND the Onboard video to get my 3 monitors working natively in 2560x1440, or if having a video card installed prevents the use of the onboard Graphics?

I did vaguely consider the GTX780, but it's about a grand here and I didn't budget for it and it doesn't seem THAT much faster.

Thanks for any assistance.

Some motherboards have Lucid Virtu software where you can basically SLI your GPU and the onboard iGPU...

 

However for me it never worked, and for some people things got even worse.

 

You can look into it.

Considering what you already have invested in that, I would suggest you just buy another GTX 680. Or at least get a Physx GTX 280 or something and just power the third monitor off that in the meantime.
