single gtx 780 dual monitor?!?!?!?

will a single asus gtx 780 be able to run games on dual monitors? (fx-8350, 8gb 1600mhz ram)
I will be playing games on one monitor and keeping skype or twitch open in the other one. Will i be able to keep steady fps at high settings?

  1. Best answer
    Yes - at 1080p anyway. With only one gaming, should be easy.
  2. Hard to really say im sure twitch is more optimized between the two, but im sure they use cpu and memory as well. crapshot till you try it.
  3. I did it just fine with a radeon 7870 and a gtx 780 is much more powerful than that.

    And i'm running a gtx770 currently with two monitors just fine.
  4. As far as I know (I may be wrong so please correct me if I am :)) Nvidia cards dont support dual monitor gaming you need 3 for Nvidia surround (ATI do with eyefinity). You can run some in window mode and extent over 2 but not always. You will definatly be able to game on the one and run something else on the other (internet or something).
    *Edit*
    I Miss read your post lol you wont have any issues there.

    You are correct though, you can't do a combined resolution (i.e. 3840x1080) with only 2 monitors on an Nvidia card, but it will do two separate resolutions just fine (1920x1080 and 1920x1080) Nvidia cards only support combined 3 monitor combined resolutions.
