Can I do a dual display?

Hello All,

I have a EVGA GTX 670 FTW, and was wondering if I would be able to do a dual display setup.

I currently have a 1200x1600 monitor that supports DVI-I, and am planning on buying another monitor that is 1920x1080 and supports DVI-D.

Now, my graphics card has 2 HDMI ports, 1 DVI-I, and one DVI-D

The 1200x1600 would be used simply for displaying teamspeak, or mumble. No gaming involved. But the other one would be use for games.

Would I be able to do a dual setup with these monitors?

Thanks a bunch (And sorry for the sloppy writing, I'm very tired),
Mitch

Can you explain how this works?

I'm not going to go and buy a cable and monitor just because some guy on the internet says, "yes"...

The gtx 670 supports up to 4 monitors. You can use any ports and different res is no issue. It really is just plugging it in and you're ready to go. Windows will see it and should set it to the correct res. You can go to screen resolution and configure the position. The game will come up on whichever is set to primary.

Off topic a bit but you don't have 2 hdmi, it's 1 displayport and 1 hdmi. Many people confuse displayport if you just glance at it. Take a closer look and you will see it's different.

Ah, yes. At a glance, I thought they were both HDMI. Thank you.
