how to configure 4 monitors

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
is it possible to use 3 monitors in surround vision whilst having an extra monitor hooked up as a seperate screen to the same cards? so the three screens will be flush with each other while the 4th one is above the middle screen, kind of like a tv. and would two 580's be enough to power these screens, all of them are 1920x1080

Ok are you running the two 580's in SLI? or are they just separately plugged into the PCI express slots?

I'm xurrently running sli using two 580s. I have three 23 inch monitors running at 1920x1080 connected to the cars for surround vision. I have a spare 21inch monitor that I have an idea for using. So I was wondering if it were possible to attach the 21 inch monitor to card that only has one monitor attached at the moment and have the sli treat it as a seperate screen so it doesn't use it in surround vision. Also. Would the 580s be enough to power that many screens?

I dont think you can. You need another card for a 4th monitor.

hmmm, so there's no way to plug the fourth monitor in and have the drivers treat it as a separate screen?

because my plan is to have my 3 23 inch screens as one giant display under surround vision, and have my fourth 21 inch screen above the middle screen and have that treated as "monitor #2" so it doesn't affect the surround vision during games etc.

sort of like this setup.
