I would recommend the Gefen HDMI Detective+

It's a hardware device that sits between your PC and the TV and emulates that the TV is always on and available so your PC does not reconfigure the screens when you turn the TV off.

I use it on my accessory (4th) monitor between my PC and receiver so that if I switch my receiver to another input (like a Tivo) the PC thinks the screen is still on and it solves a lot of the glitches you might otherwise experience.

They are around $65-75 but well worth it in my opinion.

This question seems appropriate for this group - I'm planning on going triple wide (1080p) in the next month or so. My setup has many uses, but I want to get a third monitor for racing simulations (Euro Truck Sim 2, Assetto Corsa, Game Stock Car Extreme 2014 and RaceRoom Racing). I was just wondering if a single r9 280x (ncix has a pretty good sale on a particular model) would be able to do the trick? I'm not expecting to put all the settings to the max, I'm just looking for something that can run three wide and still offer high quality graphics.

My other option is to wait for the 3xx series release and decide than between the new installments of the nvidia and amd cards.

Edit: It seems I missed the boat on the sale in question (they sold out of the model) mad.gif. However, I was still wondering if the 280x would be sufficient or should I go for something like a 290 or a 290x?
