I have an Multicom laptop (Norwegian manufracter), and I was wondering if I am able to have two monitors and my laptop screen running at the same time. This is via an HDMI cable and an Mini display to VGA adapter. And will my graphics card eventually get overheated because of the 3 screens, and then pretty much be destroyed, or will it run fine?

I highly doubt nvidia would have designed it to overheat with that setup. Maybe the best option is to install msi afterburner. Do the monitor setup and then monitor your temperatures using afterburner.

Is MSI afterburner a downloadable program?

Yeah. Its free to use. I know some people have issues with the one from the MSI website not running on 64 bit. I downloaded it using

You should be able to do this by simply going into the resolution/display settings and changing the displays to extended desktop. If the GPU does reach the maximum temperature it will automatically shut down. Either that or the driver will crash. It will not continue on and destroy itself.

A quick question; What will happen when I change it to extended desktop? So that basically means that if my computer can't handle the heat that the monitors are generating my computer will automatically turn itself off? And I reckon there is no way to be ensured that this will not happen before I buy the monitors right?

Yep, 64bit is right. I'll give it a test after I decide whether to buy one or two monitors, Thanks!
