Hi Guys,

I have 2x 19" Widescreen Monitors and i have spent almost all day trying to get games to work on them. Currently i have Ultramon & Display Fusion installed and although they help alot with the desktop dont do a thing in game. So basically what i am asking for is a program that tricks windows into thinking that my 2 monitors are 1 big one. I have tried Nvidia's Control panel and it didnt help. And yes i know that it will be split right down the middle, i will be getting 3 in the future anyway.

Any Help would be fantastic guys :D

You should be able to extend your desktop across two monitors but it won't work for gaming, to get multi monitor support for gaming you're going to need at least two GTX260's.

Only if you're using Surround Vision or Eyefinity.

25 x 16 is the high end resolution that many 30" and bigger monitors can achieve.

It may work but performance is something else just give it a shot but a 9600gt isn't much these days.

You can, but all important info such as HUDs, crosshairs will be split in to by the monitor bezels.

Hence, a three monitor setup.
