3 monitor set up, SLI running

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My box has SLI 580's in it, what do I require to get 3 monitors like I had when using ATI tech in windows? From reading the nvidia site it sounds like I need another card that does not have the same GPU that is not running in SLI to get this. If so, does it matter what card I get as long as it is geforce 8 or above? I am thinking something cheap like GT 220 off this page http://www.scan.co.uk/Shop/Computer-...72/673/683/608 as it is only going to be powering a monitor in windows, right?

Next part of the question, how do you get 3 monitors in games liek bc2 using nvidia tech??

If you want 2d surround (gaming) then you just need an SLi setup. Connect two monitors to the first card and the third to the second card.
