Will this work? TV OUT + 2-DVI

Hello All,

I searched to see if this question has been asked and I didn't find it - So I apologize if this issue has been addressed in the past.

The system described in my computer description is used as an NLE Video editing System - It works flawlessly... What I want to do, and I'm wondering if this will work, is presently the system has two, 19" DVI monitors, both work flawlessly as well... I noticed recently that this card (eVGA 6600GT) also has a TV out port... Which of course makes me want to use it... Can I drive 2-DVI Monitors, PLUS use the TV OUT port to a television (preview TV)...

Has anyone tried this, and does it work, or am I setting myself up for pain and torment?

I'm fairly sure that it can't be done on most graphic cards as they are mainly 'dual head' cards, meaning that they can only drive up to 2 displays at once.

To get all 3 going, you'd need a different card from the likes of Matrox or whoever else offers that capability.
