580 Dual monitor question

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So as I think of more things to waste money on I am thinking abuot upgrading from my current samsung 23 in that I'm pretty sure is this one, and picking up a Dell U2711. My question is this, will I have issues running both screens from my 580?

Ideally I would like to have the 27 for gaming and the other screen for watching temps and afterburner and movies.

Any potential issues?

Nope no problems - 580 will run that monitor beautifully, and the 2nd screen monitoring FPS etc. while the other one is gaming should only take 1 - 2fps off?

Yuh. Before I got my second 580 and switch monitors around, I ran one big (28") and a smaller (22") without a single problem. Handled it like a boss.

Nope, no issues. Mine was 1920x1200 and 1680x1050. I just adjusted the virtual height of the smaller monitor so they lined up when I dragged windows over.

I wish I could see one of these in real life, I want to see how big it will be on my desk but nobody sells them near me...

Yeah, it will work. I use my 19" with my 24" sometimes, and it works fine. I can even play dirt across both screens .
