Nvidia surround monitor compatibility Help!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, Just need some info regarding monitor compatibility on Nvidia's 2d surround setups

I'v been building a system on the cheap. and recently scored another 460gtx 1gb cheap which is currently in the mail as well as another 22" panel for 80$. and i have found one more. the problem is these panels are mismatched. and i have heard bad stories about doing this

My original panel is a Acer AL2216W. the second is a Chimei CMV-225D. these 2 from the rear look identical and the front bezels are simmilar. as the Acer is infact a rebranded chimei panel.

The 3rd monitor i have found but have yet to purchase is a newer Phillips 220CW9.

My question is weather these 3 panels can work in a surround configuration. or which of them are compatible. and which i will have to replace, All 3 are 1680x1050 panels. However the sync rate and type are unknown to me

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

This is what i had hoped, however from reading up i'v heard there are issues with sync type as well. for example a monitor that uses interlaced sync will not function with a progressive sync monitor. Or so iv heard. Problem is these are unknown to me
