Here's my question,

I'm going to buy a z68 board and 2500k but I currently have 3 monitors (I only game on one)

The obvious choice would be to buy an amd card and run eyefinity but these monitors aren't the same size. One is 1920x1080 and the other two are 1600x900

I want to buy an Nvidia card and I thought I could plug the main monitor and one of the secondaries into the card and the 3rd monitor into the onboard graphics to take advantage of the new intel integrated graphics.

Is this possible or would I need to buy an additional cheap card to use for my secondary displays?

Jason,

Did you ever get an answer to your question of using the onboard graphics with an nvidia card? I am in the same boat.

Yes, you should be able to run the GPU and IGP at the same time with no problem :)
