Finally got some time to get it all together and I can confirm that GTX285's in SLI + Vista 64 Ult + 3 22" Dell 2208WFP work at 5040x1050


If you dont know what the Matrox TripleHead2Go Digital is .... Basically its a signal splitter for DVI output from your video card and allows a single DVI port to run three seperate monitors. See more here

Screeens below are at 5040x1050 and 3840x1024 as some games I havent config'd correctly yet

The unit on floor:


Left 4 Dead:







Far Cry 2:









Crysis Warhead:









Far Cry Quick Bench

Also you'll need to get the Beat Matrox Powerdesktop for it to work with new nVidia drivers at 5040x1050 & Vista
Contaact the and theyll email it to you while your on phone.

Benches are around 30-60 fps in Crysys Gamer 4xAA , 80+fps in every other game maxed out so far.

You could use a peice of software called softH which does a similar thing without hardware. It requires two graphics cards and does not support SLI/xFire and unless your on some serious hardware kills framerates, which is why I went with the TH2GO Digital

Well since they are diff gpu families you wont be able to SLI them
But you could set up the 9800gx2 as your primary GPU and use the 260 for PhysX. Then connect one dvi from the 9800GX2to the TH2GO and then to three monitors.

ah ok i currently have 2 monitors with differnt resol (1920x1200 and 2048x1152)
would be able to have a task bar across the bottem of both of them? or do i need them to be the same size for that

if i bought the THgo would i be able to have all my games across both my 2 monitors? does it actuly render more or does it just strech the image across?

do you see a drop is fraps per seconds compared to just letting windows vista sort it out and no THGO?
