Hello,
Is there a way to add 2 graphic cards to 1 PC and hook up 2 LCd's and have each LCD display as separate primary displays?

Hello Criggi,

Not sure what you mean by separate primary displays....

You can hook up two graphics cards to two monitors and have them each display their own stuff if that's what you're referring to.

EX: Have one monitor playing a game in fullscreen mode on that monitor, and then have the other monitor with a browser open so you can browse the internet.

I have 2 DVR's that are displaying security cameras through browsers.
I have 2 graphics cards hooked up to 1 pc.
I need to display full screen and fast stream.
Even though there are separate graphics cards, the full screen and fast stream of the cameras will only show on the primary monitor.
I need to be able to have each graphic card act a a sepatate and primary display in order to be able to perform full screen and fast stream through 2 browsers.

Hmmmm, that's a little beyond my territory of knowledge. Someone else want to chime in here who has experience with multiple displays?

Make sure you have extend desktop, which usually is usually set if you have 2 monitors hooked up and from that point do what uh_no said.
