2 monitors on 1 GTX480

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I got a quick question. Will 2 1080p 120hz-capable (on native res, of course) monitors (2 of the ones in my rig below) in a multiple monitor set-up both run at 120hz when connected only to 1 GTX480 through its DVI ports? I've already got one of those ACER's running at 120hz in my GTX480, and I want to add another one but I'm not sure if they will both run at 120hz like needed. Thanks for the help, guys.

Max refresh rate for GTX480 is 240hz.
Should be good to go I think.
