post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
ok, my gran is giving me another 15" monitor, so tht means ill have 3.

but my 460 only has 2 ports (DVI) so will my mobo handle a card for physx, and then run video off a physics card, or would there have to be another way around it? thanks in adv.

you need 2 nvidia cards in SLI mode for nvidia surrond with 3 monitors (eyefinity is exclusive for ati cards). to do 3 monitors you need another gtx 460 in sli and connect the two monitors into the two dvi connectors of the first card and the last one into the second card. you need 3 cards for nvidia surrond and physx.

If you're just talking about running three separate monitors for regular desktop use, but are okay w/gaming on only one (or the two that run off the main card should probably work too) at a time, this config you speak of should be fine.
