I have 3 580s, and 3 monitors. I'm trying to figure out how to use SLI from all cards, with all 3 monitors up. Is it possible?

^ That pretty much sums it up. Just make sure you have the proper SLI bridge for 3-way SLI and that it is installed securely.

mm, thanks for the link, although its not quite what I was looking for.

My problem is that I cannot seem to get 3 way sli enabled with all 3 monitors on NOT in surround view. I would like to have the other monitors for HWmonitor pro, etc, while the main screen is open with the game. Is this possible??

I don't know as I haven't had a chance to play with a surround vision set up yet. I wouldn't expect it to be possible though unless the "Activate all displays" mode puts the game on one screen and leaves the other two on desktop and the "Maximise 3D" setting is the one for putting everything one screen but like I said before I don't no for sure.

yeah, that seems to be the case (that it's not possible) really sucks, but I guess I can live with it for now. it seems to show 2 cards in SLI if I use "Activate all displays" but not the 3rd. Only way to get all 3 it seems is surroundview, or Maximise 3d.

I did however run into another problem, my 2 monitors on the sides are 26" (30" in the middle) When I try to run an extended resolution for surround gaming, it says out of range on the monitors like they're not getting the signal. (the native resolution is 1920*1200, It won't let me get to 5760*1200, but will let me choose 5760*1080, but none of them work with the monitors. (I hope NVidia doesn't want them all to be the same monitors.)

According to their page
Quote:
All displays must have a common resolution, refresh rate, and sync polarity
it's the 120hz monitor/TV's and projectors and 3D when things start having to be the same make and model.

I will have to try some more tomorrow. It worked great with crossfirex, so I'm sure it will work with surroundview. I just have to get used to the different drivers. Thanks mm.

Let us know what you found out, there haven't been too many comparisons of the different features that ATi and Nvidias multi monitor setups have/don't have.
