Question about 3 monitors and GTX 770 SLI

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok guys, I am getting a new computer and the specs are going to be listed below but before I list the specs I would like to know if it is possible to run 3 monitors, 2 will be 23 inch Asus and one will either be a 24 or 25 inch Asus. How would I go about doing this? Do all 3 monitors plug into the primary card or can I do 2 screens on one card and then 1 on the other? I have never had an NVIDIA card or used dual cards before so I have no idea what I am doing with this. I need the 3 monitors to work from home effectively and my current PC can't support that so thats why I am getting a new one (and to play games on Ultra of course)

Thanks for any tips or help!

to connect 3 monitors to your GPU there is a few ways you can do it.. Now running in SLI I think you can only use the outputs on the primary card. You want to connect 2 via dvi then 1 through your display port IMO. It's very easy and once you go with 3 monitors you wont go back biggrin.gif

I found this link for you to help you make a decision on triple monitor gaming! it is extremely useful! I hope this helps thumb.gif
