Running Nvidia Surround with different monitors

Hello!

I'm having a bit of a quandary...

I was able to buy an Asus VG248QE at a dirt-cheap price to run with my laptop, but now that I'm upgrading to a desktop I'm looking at a triple monitor setup. I don't want to have to pay the +$500 price for 2 more VG248QE's, although I do love it. My question is, would I be able to run Nvidia surround (1 game across 3 monitors, using a GTX 780) by placing 2 VX248H Asus monitors on either side? All 3 monitors have a 1ms response time, and I could scale the 144mhz speed down to 60mhz. Can anyone help me out?

  1. If displays are not identical, this may result in a lower resolution than optimal. You can connect any connectors to enable 2D Surround according NVIDIA. Ports you can use are marked in green round label.

    Once you have everything connected;
    Start the PC-> Install the latest NVIDIA GeForce drivers-> restart if needs be-> Open the NVIDIA Control Panel. Inside it, navigate to ‘Configure Surround, PhysX’, and simply click the ‘Configure’ button that appears in the right-most window pane.

    Good luck :)

    So if I'm reading this correctly....

    I can run Nvidia surround, but not in 3D. (Meaning I can run surround, but can't run 3D with the glasses and everything). This is fine, I wasn't planning on running 3D anyway.

    yes you are right. You will only be able to run 2D surround from the 3 monitors you have listed.
