[Official] nVidia Surround - Page 129

post #1281 of 8962
Sort of a noob question but here goes. So I have three Catleap monitors that only do Dual Link DVI-I connections. I'm about to purchase two 680s and I've been trying to find out how to set up Nvidia Surround with these three Dual Link DVI-I connections. Problem is that the 680s have 1 Dual Link DVI-I and 1 Dual Link DVI-D. I know that I must connect two monitors to the first card and the last monitor to the second card. I just dont have enough Dual Link DVI-I connections on the cards. Anyone have this situation before and know what type of adapter I will need?

Dvi-I to hdmi is what I would do but I have my third monitor on hdmi and it has a issue with sleep mode so I manually have to turn it off. Other than that it works fine

Correct me if I'm wrong, but from what I have read both DVI ports are Dual-DVI on the 680's (as has been the case with pretty much all mid/high-range GPU's) - so you should not have a problem using both DVI's on the top card and one DVI on the bottom. thumb.gif

You're right about that. Its just that one is DVI-D and the other is DVI-I. I think that has something to do with an analog signal? Not entirely sure about that? I only have DVI-I ports so I'm wondering how it would work in surround.

Following Nvidia's recommendations, your maximum resolution of 7680x1440 (landscape) or 4320x2560 should just inherently work using the available DVI ports without anything extra for your two 680's:

If you use a single card, however, then you would need an adapter for the Displayport, assuming your monitor does not come with a DP connection already. smile.gif

So I would only need a DVI-D cable? The DVI-I has 4 additional holes and I'm still having a hard time wrapping my head around this. Thanks for you help thus far though!

Yep. smile.gif The cables from here will work perfectly - just have to pick the right length:
