3 lcds, one gtx 285

I would like to run 3 lcd screens on my pc with a gtx 285 and a dvi splitter. I would like to span desktop across the 3 so that I can have 3 dif. programs showing on all 3. can I get this results with the splitter running ultramon? cant seem to get anything other then cloned desktop on the splitter???

T.I.A.

  1. nope, with most graphics cards you can only get 2 displays, to get the third you need another card

    the radeon HD5XXX supports 3 displays right now and there is a special 6 display version coming soon, though for the 3 displays to work you either need a displayport monitor or you have to use an active displayport to dvi converter, the 6 displayport card is only display ports so you would need display port monitors or 6 converters

  3. though if the screens are 1920x1200 or lower you could buy a matrox dualhead2go (get the digital one that takes dvi). Connect 2 monitors to the dualhead then the third to the gpu and connect the dual head to the gpu

    this would give you 2 monitors that act like one and a span for the third one

    if you have monitors that are 1680x1050 or below then you could just get the triplehead2go
