  1. I don't think its possible to do.

    Nvidia GTX 460 doesn't have native support for multi-monitor gaming. You would need to be running an SLI set up (multiple cards) in order to span the game across two screens. You would also need a game that supports that kind of resolution. Most new games do, however older games tend to have max resolutions of 1024x768
  2. I NEED TO PLAY DIRT 3. but i can dee a vga port, hdmi and a dvi port in my gtx 460! i thought the gtx 460 has multi monitor support! isnt there any way to vonnect another monitor?
  3. You can connect to another monitor using another display port on the card. However this will only display an extended desktop and will only work within windows. If you load a game it will still only display on one screen rather than both and will sometimes require you to disable the second display altogether.

    SLI Support only one monitor.
