I have read all over that the gtx 480 and 470 cards only run up to 2 monitors.My question is --In Maximum PC Magazine they built a "dream machine" monster Pc using 3 HP 30in monitors.I wonder how they got the 3 monitors to work.

Right.and how do they run 3 displays .I thought at present time the max was 2 displays. I have the issue of Maximum PC in front of me and I dont recall seeing how they did it.

2 displays per card, that machine runs 3 480s, so you can go up to six displays.

If the max was two displays there would be no Nvidia Surround.
