I got a GT 9800 and I want to know how to set dual display of the new game "Modern Warfare 3"... I cant seem to find an option nor a way to make it dual display as google wont give out HOW to set dual monitor on MW3... If you guys got any clue to how to set dual display on MW3, please gives me advice!

Two(Dual) Dell 21.6" 1920x1080 5MS

Note: I dont want any discussion of "Your VIDEO wont have enough memory for both" because it's annoying and I know it and please dont tell me it ain't enough because I just want dual display rather than spending $400 for a GTx 570 2GB...

9800gt will have insane trouble displaying 2 monitors at that resolution thus making the game unplayable even with all settings turned down, might as well only play on one or spend 150-250 for a new card.

if you are looking to do that

its called Nvidia Surround or AMD Eyefinity

you have an Nvidia 9800GT which is NOT SUPPORTED

if you just want extended desktop where the game runs on 1 screen only but you can have other things open on the other like emails, internet or movies.

then your 9800GT video card will do it

You might want to get a card with 2gb of vram, as it will be hard for a card with 1gb of vram to display such a high resolution.

I want to know if it can, not what i need for it... The Memory is no concern to me as It dont get pass 1GB as long as it's not on maximum settings... ModernWarfare haven't even used more than 600MB of VRAM

I suppose if you run the game windowed than yes your can stretch it across. No idea if that would be playable though.

In that case no it isn't possible without Nvidia Surround or Eyefinity...

I have a Radeon HD 6850. I can not get MW3 to display across both monitors, stretched. How do I do this?
