2 different graphics cards to allow 3rd display. Tags: Graphics Cards Monitors Nvidia Graphics Last response: February 8, 2012 2:29 PM in Graphics & Displays Share reco1977 February 8, 2012 1:15:03 PM I am currently running Nvidia 260gtx which has x2 monitors connected. I would like to add a 3rd monitor and I was wondering what the best way is to do this? I have a spare Nvidia 8800gt pcie gathering dust in the cupboard. Can I hook this 8800gt up to run with the 260gtx? Both cards are pcie. The mobo that I have is a xcross fire only board. It does not support SLI. I am aware that the cards will not run in SLI but I am interested to know If the 2 cards will run and allow me to connect that 3rd monitor. Power shouldnt be a problem, I have a 1000w PSU Thanks all More about : graphics cards 3rd display americanbrian a b U Graphics card February 8, 2012 2:29:26 PM it shouldn't hurt to try, but it is a very non-standard config so some applications may not know how to handle it and may crash give it a blast. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
