Multimonitor gaming

Last response: in Graphics & Displays

Hello all,
I have a GTX280, and just got another 23" LCD to match my other. They are both running 1920x1080@60Hz.

My question is thus. How would I go about gaming on both monitors simultaneously? I already have them setup as extended in Windows, but my games still see then as separate displays, and will only run on my main display.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try setting the in-game resolution to 3840x1080. If that doesn't work, then try opening the game in Windowed Mode and manually expanding it across both screens.

Nvidia do not support gaming across dual screens only three and that is only if you are running SLi.

Running games across more than 1 screen in a non-windowed mode with Nvidia cards requires an SLI setup. This is called 3D/2D surround:

You'll need to get another GTX280 and a third monitor if you want this to function:

The exception would be if there is a game out there supporting 3840x1080 in windowed mode. Any other game would run on the primary monitor only.
