Hello all. I have 3 4:3 monitors (Dell, IBM, and HannsG, all 1280x1024) and 3 video cards, one of which is installed. The 3 are Nvidia 7300GS, 9400GT, and a GT430. The GT430 is installed on my ASUS M5A97 mobo. My question then: I want to use all 3 of my monitors, but I don't know if, or how I can. I know my motherboard supports SLI, but as far as I know I can't take advantage of my SLI because I do not have two of the same video cards. If I am wrong, or if someone has got a way for me to do such a thing, I'll be incredibly greatful.
Each video card can support two monitors.
Install two of them, and attach the two side monitors to one of them, and the center or gaming monitor to the strongest card by itself.
No sli is needed to have an extended desktop.
Awesome, I'll have to get that a shot! I remember (before I had my GT430) I put my 7300GS and 9400GT onto the same mobo and it did NOT like that... my drivers were all caddy wompus, yaknow? Everything was askew and I had to reinstall all my stuff.
